Took a weekend to visit some old neighbors who now live down on Cape Cod. Was an enjoyable weekend. The trip down was plagued by traffic accidents, jams, and all around traffic issues that tacked on an extra hour and a half (at least) to our trip. Stop and go traffic is never fun and the fine folks of Massachusetts seems to make it worse with their lack of driving abilities. But eventually we made it. Nausset Spit Cars were lined for a good mile down the beach The friends had a special jeep all set up with lower air pressure in the tires so we could drive onto the beach. We didn't stay, just decided to check out the…

Not mine, but a neighbors who needed a couple of deck hands to help out and I was more than willing to come along for the ride and do what I could.

Using maple sap (aka maple water) as a sports drink isn't anything new. Here is an article back from 2014 proclaiming this: https://www.wellnesstoday.com/nutrition-recipes/maple-water-the-next-natural-energy-drink Ever since the coconut water craze, which I believe has come and gone, other products were looking to jump on the bandwagon.

I'm…
