Just sayin I love this box pass idea!
Wait till you get it....
I believe it is going to be quite the job just keeping up with this thread!
I know i dont qualify yet but if i get on the list now I can enjoy a delightful extra Christmas present.
I hate to do it, but I'm thinking at 20 people, I may have to stop adding people until it comes around again. There are guys who have already been waiting a while and 2 weeks at 20 people is the better part of a year!
The Mighty Box shall be at Crpntr1's doorstep tomorrow.

Enjoy. I didn't take a picture of what I added but here's what I put in:
Key Largo by G.L. Pease - I still haven't tried it yet, I cracked the tin to contribute to the box lol
Black Spice by Altadis - Tastes like allspice and nutmeg
Chocolate Mint #105 by McClelland - It's very subtle, I was hoping for more mint but that didn't happen.
Cinnamon by Peter Stokkebye - Smells really nice and tastes like cinnamon. Very one dimensional but a good all day smoke.
I don't remember if I put in some Shortcut to Mushrooms or not... I hope I did.
So it looks like around Labor Day I get it. Yummy.
Yay! Awesome pass, Spartan!
Just got official txt...the box is on my poker table. My son said "wow you should smell it"
29 more days and I can join this. Hope I can still join by then.
Nature's Air Freshener.
Smells so good I want to put it in my coats, my mattress, pillows, car seats, everywhere.
I don't think we'll be hearing more from crpntr1 for awhile. He's gonna be waaaaay to busy!
It is a bit overwhelming...I didnt know where to start so I lit a bowl of 7 seas black to help me out..forgive the lighting, Im converting my garage into a gameroom and the lighting issue will be adressed after the bar is finished (was gonna be this weekend)

Sorry for ruining your whole weekend lol
Brings a smile to my face.
ok I've been working odd hours but I think that's over, samples are in and about to pack it up, again. Anything changed? ie. the list..If not it'll be on its way to an okie by tomorrow or Saturday. Its been really cool, thanx for the opportunity.
Fun stuff isn't it?
Nope, it's all good for now. Fire at will!
*Hopes the list will die down a bit when he qualifies to be on it and did someone stick a ton of pipes in there as well? :)*
14 more days till I can join the next list. Just counting down the days.
@tarring there are several pipes in it, I'm adding a couple myself, one ins a mm cob with a briarbird made Lucite stem!
Dear Chris, that's a gross misappropriation of my name I am one jelous cat
Taerin ...sorry, auto correct got me again.
Man. I'm glad I have a US Map in my office. Taking over the box pass taught me how embarrassingly poor I am at Geography.
It is always fun when you open the box for the first time.
Ha yea...pictures do not do it justice
I am looking forward to it. I have been in on a couple of box passes in the past, and they are always fun. Got some ideas about what I want to put in, too.
I can't wait till I get the box.I've been waiting forever
Were is woldo, I mean the box. Any updated list
The box is in TX still but its scheduled to be picked up before 12 today. Sorry I had it a few extra days.
My contributions were a MM complete with a sort of psychedelic acrylic stem made by briar bird, some millionaire blend, some midnight gold from sir Elliot's, lane very cherry, squadron leader (wasn't a lot but all I had, since there was none in there yet) and pa soft vanilla. Also some tampers and cleaners and stuff. Thanx for letting me participate !!
Nice pass Chris
Did Bailey331 get the box yet?
I'll check when I get home...sent it 7 days ago via pony express, I thought I was safer that way...
It may be a good idea from now on, to post the tracking number for the box once we ship it. Of course, you can truncate personal information, but It would help us stay on top of it. The PO does screw up, after all.
I have been getting a lot of requests for joining the box pass lately. Here are the basic rules. Please make sure you qualify before you ask to be added. Thanks!
Here are the basics:
This Box Pass is a box that has a large variety of tobaccos for you to sample. It is sponsored by the members, not Pipes Magazine. If you want to be included, you must meet the requirements below:
1. Must be a member for a minimum of 4 months
2. Post Count must be at least 100 posts
3. Have the financial resources to spend $15-20.00 on shipping the box to the next person.
4. Live in the U.S.A. We hate to do this but it's gone to Canada before and while it made it safely, there is always the possibility of Canadian Customs keeping it. We'd rather be safe than sorry.
5. Give your: name, screenname, address, email address, and phone number to baronsamedi (he will keep your phone number and not put it on the list).
6. Keep the box no longer than 2 weeks.
Do not sign up if you do not have a stable address, will be moving soon, going to school out of state, etc. You need to be an active, established member on here to show that you will be sticking around, and are trustworthy. The other two boxes that were "lost", were the result of not having the above attributes.
There will be a list which needs to be kept on top of the tobacco with all the names of the recipients on it. Please be sure to keep it circulating with the box. It will have all the information you need on who to send the box to next (excluding their phone number, which is kept by baronsamedi). Please take any samples that you want, but add your samples back in.
Try not to take a whole 4 ounce bag, the whole purpose is to have a large variety of tobaccos for everyone to try. Enjoy!
AGAIN, SEND ALL REQUESTS TO GET ON THE LIST TO: baronsamedi
I have nothing to do with the logistics of this and I will NOT forward any info to baronsamedi. You have been warned.
It was delivered on the 25th to Mr Bailey in okieville I'll post a pic of the conformation # momentarily
Awesome. He doesn't post all the time, so I'm sure he's just enjoying his baccy.
Am I on the list? I sent my info, just don't know if I got in on it in time. Thanks
Will there be a new list posted?
As many other "newbie" posters before me listed, I too anxiously await being able to join this list. Been saving a few "estates" as well as several samples to add to the box.
Hope everyone has a Great Weekend !!!!
I will try to go over the list this weekend and make sure everyone who was supposed to got added. I'm still trying to keep it somewhat cohesive, location-wise. Bailey331 should have it at this time, unless he's already sent it out.
I just got an email from Bailey331. He has the box but hasn't been able to get online because of work. It will be heading to Irish this weekend and then finally out to tanless in California!
Just drooled a lil...... Ok a lot!!!
Like the new profile baron and thanks for putting me on the list.
Wow you guys really have a huge selection. I was impressed with our Canadian box but yours is amazing. Thats terrific.
Give it time! People seem to just love stuffing more things into the box. Pretty soon it will be more tape than box and nearly impossible to fit back in!
Kinda like digging a hole...you've always got too much dirt when you fill it back up...
When is the box making it to the midwest.???
The list is on page 1. May be additions since then, of course.
Just got word from Bailey331 today, "The box is on its way to Nathan (Irish). The tracking number is 03113260000194651723. Thanks"
Here is the box pass list as it stands. If I left you out or you've made your time/post count to get in, let me know. Needless to say, waiting for the box is an exercize in patience, but I assure you, it is worth it when it finally arrives!
(romeowood) (Assistant Coordinator)
Sigh....Still looking forward to my name being added to the list when the time comes.
Baron, Thanks for the efforts to set-up and maintain this box pass.
It'll be like an early Christmas when it shows up!
22 People this far. It will be like Christmas cos you'll only see it once a year!
Baron just made my day.
just an idea mind ya I aint sayin its a gud un but if the box is so big why not do like a wallstreet stock and offer to split it and make 2 boxes
Christmas in July is pretty cool too.
If all works out it may reach me around Christmas time. That would be a heluva treat!
@ PawPaw, we actually had 2 boxes at one time, but one mysteriously vanished. Another member suggested starting a box pass for noobs, which as long as it complies with the buy/sell/trade rules of the forum is a good idea, but I got my hands full with this one. It is a great box, though, and worth the wait when you do receive it. I was a bit overwhelmed when I opened it.
A box for the newbies was previously shot down, as it was just too much going on, been there, tried that. If things are kept in baggies, there can be a tremendous variety all contained in one box, the tins take up too much room. It should also be mentioned that taking samples by everyone, should keep the contents reasonable. If there are small baggies that you would like to keep, then just replace it with another new sample of another blend, as ideally you should be able to get the box after a year goes by, and there should be mostly new blends for you to try.
My fiance saw a pink pipe in the picture and she is now selecting witch of my pipes is gonna be swapped. She said that as soon as she has the baby she is gonna smoke with me!
That can be good...and bad!
@baron its an excuse for tad!
