Maple Syrup and Iceboating

John Bushy is a Minnesota DN sailor who, like most Iceboaters, has other unique interests in the off season…

One of his is making maple syrup! He says they made 15 gallons in a day last week. They just ordered 1000 bottles…. they must be on a roll!

He works with his sons Zane and Sam. Here they are keeping an eye on things

And here is the works- or whatever the proper name is…. John says they throw in “an armful of wood every three-four minutes!”

If you’re lucky he will fill one of these for you- I recommend it highly!
