You're from Madison? I grew up there! (I visit pretty often to see the folks, living closeby in New Haven.)

Any handoffs you guys want to perform is ok with me... The list is fluid, IF something comes up and you need to switch spots or something don't be skeered to pm me and we can make arrangements.. If I've left you off the list let me know so we can get you on there.

PostSubject: The List   Sat Mar 13, 2010 11:11 pm

I like it PB. I'm down the list far enough that the box is bound to have some interesting puts and takes by the time it gets here and there is time to ponder my additions.

Thanks for your work on this.

By the way, I noticed earlier in the thread that you were at the time in Southern Ohio. If your travels ever have you in the Cincinnati area with time for a bowl and a brew let me know. Can always make time for that and don't get the chance to sit and share the experience with people who enjoy it often enough.

The killer is finding a Parking Spot and the Time... It's not that easy, one of my best buddys lives about 90 miles North of me and I haven't had time to go visit him in a couple years... When reality sinks in a little bit it really is a suck ass job, even your home time seems rushed.

Cool I have never been first in a box pass before. Was last once that was great too. Thanks PB there are some great blends in there that I have never sampled. Can't wait to try them. As much as we have made fun of walnut of the years here and at the old Knox board I am finally getting a chance to try it.

Well, Well, Well, all I can say is PB you have done excellent thing here. Only a few on that list I have been introduced to, so when it get to be my turn all I will have to do is stick my hand in and pull out something new. I am looking forward to and am very thankful for this opportunity to being exposed to what so many of fellow BoB's have written this is good try it.
Thanks for all your hard work PB.

Can't wait til the walnut arrives if there is any left that will be my first try.

Be safe out there and watch out for the Lizards. {For me, I miss seeing them running around half neckid in the cold}

I do believe Ken was just making a joke there Ed............ Neutral


A little reminder for the new guys who are in on the pass:


Unopened tins are for trading, take 1 replace 1 with a tin of similar value - if you take 4 tins you put 4 tins into the box. If you take a 100 gram tin of 5 year old vinginia flake you don't replace it with a 2 ounce bag of Lane re-branded house blend.

Do not open sealed tins and sample them.

Opened tins and bags are for sampling, take a bowl or two of what interests you and make sure the samples are well sealed when you replace them.

If the shipping box looks in bad shape when it gets to you replace it before you send it back out.

Make sure you have your safety harness and rope handy, we don't want anyone falling in and getting lost in the box, the last guy wasn't discovered for 8 days Shocked

Fuzzy slippers are now considered mandatory Cool

I'm not sure if PB is trying to tell us that he mailed the package or launched a preemptive nuclear strike.

Maybe a battlefield Nuke?? Nobody does Full Scale Unlimited Strategic Nuclear Warfare like MikeM.. This box is shameful compared to most he has put out in years past...

Thanks for the hard work and generosity with putting this pass together PB! I've never been on a box pass so I'm looking forward to sampling a good number of blends I've never had the opportunity to try. Hell I may even take a couple days off of work so I have enough time for proper samplification lol. Very Happy

Just another friendly reminder..


1.Toss in some of your favorites for the other guys to sample.. in years past we've had issues with samples drying out.. Small to Medium sized amounts will work just great (besides I really don't want a box with 42 lbs of samples to arrive at my doorstep when she comes back. I'll be happy just to get a half dozen bowlfuls and 15 tins back Smile )
2. Its ok (but not necessary) to make your swaps, pull some samples, and put the box back in the mail earlier than 6 days.
3. Smoke that Westminster.. there should be at least enough for everyone to get a few bowls.
