Sorry for not chiming in again earlier. Been out of town on vacation and was off the grid for it. Looks like a helluva box BH, thanks again for setting this up!

I just sent juanmedusa the tracking number for the big fat heavy box headed his way.

Whomever you decide to send it to, be sure to send them the tracking number as well.

So - we ended up with seven players (plus me), quite the select group. Probably  a very good thing. We'll likely be sneaking just past Thanksgiving as we finish and so will keep well away from the annual Christmas HooHaw thing here.

Hey! I have a good idea! Since this is at least. In part a Halloween event, everybody should put a candy bar in the box! And a question. Since they make those little "less fun" size bars to give out to kids, why don't they make like a Snickers bar that's 5 - 6 times bigger than regular for real men to get for themselves?!?!

OMG! I guess they DO!!!

It came to me first! Man, I slaughtered that box. I devastated it. There's nothing left for anyone but tears. That, actually, couldn't be further from true. I made 5 exchanges in total and like to think I wasn't to hard on any one genre or taste. I didn't mess with the Stonehaven so I trust someone is still feeling lucky. (Though I was compelled to at least smell it. Wonderful stuff.) I traded out the tin of Firedance Flake for a tin of Wessex Burley Slice 03/09. I traded out the tin of Pebblecut for a tin of Cairo 10/8/09. I traded out 1 oz of undated Blackpool for an oz of GH&Co. Black Cherry twist from 2012. I traded out 1 oz of undated Ramsgate for 1 oz of McClelland Blakeney's Best Acadian Ribbon from 2006. And lastly, and where I messed up, I traded out 1.55 oz of Aged Night Train for 50 grams of Aged SG Best Brown Flake from 2008. I mislabeled the sample of bbf as 2 oz but it is actually the total contents of a single tin I had just jarred. Therefore, of course, it was packed as 50 grams.
It seems I've started to jar and cellar some of the selections Blackhorse provided but my jarred cellar collection at this point is a bit juvenile in comparison. I saw no point in trading out similar things for younger versions other than selfishness so I didn't. I quite enjoyed this event. I'm more than excited about my acquisitions. I look forward to watching this progress.
The best news is I got this today on a day off, made my trades, and got it back to the post office. It is on it's way to its next target. I will pm the recipient now with the tracking number. There's a whole lot of stuff in there, I hope to see you all accelerate this from it's humble beginning. John.

Sounds good to me. Does that mean I was in danger of becoming his cousin, I think, Slowpoke Gonzales? Man, that I wouldn't want. I didn't out the next recipient btw. Am I supposed to or even pm you directly for logistical purposes?

Go ahead and announce your choice to the rest of the group.

Keep your tracking number between the two of you & PM me with that as well.

Next player in line...no need to show the respectful restraint Speedy there did. Reap from the harvest boys.

And I hope you took your cigars? There was no mention of that, as well as the Edgeworth!!! Both those are freebies, as mentioned numerous times.

I imagine you can talk one of the other guys into sending those back your way. If not I'll do it when the box comes home.

Let the Doc know what day your receipt says delivery is expected d. He's in a unique situation as far as package delivery is concerned. Might help him to know.

I'll send it out within 48 (hopefully 24) business hours after I get it! I see there are already 2 Semois samples included; I'll figure out something!

Were you thinking of putting some Semois in there?

Just saw the thread and asked myself the same thing.


You know, the post-holiday winter dullness isn't to far off, so if anyone wants to liven up February, I'm game.
