I have a question. What is the little spit-toon looking jar int the box? It says Fred Stoker on it. There used to be a Stokers tobacco about 20 miles from me in Dresden Tn. They blended some of the best chew that I ever had. I hated it when they sold out some 12 to 15 years ago.

Eggman I couldn't figure out what that thing was either. I thought for sure you or Mike would know Very Happy BTW I want to thank and curse whomever put the sample of ERR'd in the box. I love this stuff and have discovered it has passed into oblivion. Oh well....at least I tasted it once. Crying or Very sad

No problem Dave, I actually have more left. Send me your address and you can have the rest. I just don't smoke it much. It's just OK to me.

Ok guys sorry for the delay but had a few problems that I worked out with Mike. So I am heading to the post office after I post the puts and takes. And will have the deliverary confirmation number in a bit.

PUTS:
Rose of Latikia
Dunhill My mixture 965
A couple of pipes for whatever use Mike sees fit (Maybe troop use)
5 cans of Grizzly long cut wintergreen. A couple of guys from work said it was good dip although I have never tried it.( I thought maybe the next box that Mike sends overseas this would make a good addition.)

Takes:
Ferndown Red and Orange
Orlik Golden Sliced
1 kaywoodie yard pipe( this is one great soking pipe I think)

Sampled:
Royal Yatch ( 3rd time to sample this blend and 3rd time is not the charm. Just can't make myself like this blend.)

ORlik golden Sliced
Full Virginia Flake
Christmas Cheer 08
Red Ribbon
S.G. Best Brown Flake
And the Nasal snuffs( these were great snuffs)

Thanks Mike for putting this on and letting me participate. And thanks to everyone else for the great trades and watching it play out.

P.S. I forgot to add that I sampled the Macbaren Mature Virginia too.

Great pass Eggy! The box is so far ahead of schedule, I don't think anyone minds a few extra days.

Great play Eggman. As Carlos said the box ended up way ahead of schedule. My only regret and apologizes go to Vapourflavor for not being able to meet his schedule to get the box to him. I'm glad you liked the sampling. I can and will put the wintergreen and pipes to good use for the troops. Thanks.

Yes sir mike that box is heavy. I checked into putting it in a couple of flat rate boxes but was not going to come out any better. I called a place that ships for UPS and FED X and it was going to be just as much. I just sent it USPS.

Gentlemen, the eagle has landed. Got home from visiting the dentist yesterday and my wife told me there was a giant box in the living room. All I can say is WOW. I will try and take a picture and post. I thank you all for your generosity once again. I have a good start with the pipes, chew, cigars, etc. for the care packages to the troops. I will be cleaning up the pipes to send out. I will post the contents once sorted out. Thank all of you again for another great box pass. cheers cheers cheers

I don't have a clue what it is (its in the first picture under the two McClellands tins). Maybe packaging for some old blend that was out there. Hopefully one of our esteemed participants can shed light on it.

Did you look inside? It's probably full of a chewing blend. I have a catalog from them someplace around here. Keep thinking I would order some of those whole leaf cured tobacco leafs to chop up for the pipe.

If you go to their web site they have a sign up link. Then they send a catalog from time to time. No online ordering. Must be a business reason for that.
