Bruce Marshall, 32, right, pours a small sample of maple syrup as Nate Smart, left, watches while sugaring in Oakland Saturday. Smart and Marshall enjoy sugaring this time of year. “It gets you out of the house. This time of year you really can’t do much. Snow is gone for snowmobiling and not dry enough for riding the ATVs.” Smart said. “Plus you have something to show for a day outdoors with some fresh maple syrup.” The two have been friends since grade school and were sugaring on their property in Oakland.
