    If that's the pink leather-wrapped pipe, I almost snagged it, just because I liked the odd bowl shape.

    That's why we allow 2 weeks for the box at each place. It takes a week to stop looking at the box thinking WTF? and another week to figure out how to get everything back in.

    That sounds like a good idea, but I doubt I could. I don't have a car of my own, and both of my parents cars aren't in the best of shape. One gets shit gas mileage, the other is ready to die. SO we will have to see how things are when you get the box

    I grabbed two coins of that stuff too. And I didn't fall in love with it. On my sample baggies I make notes like:

    Will smoke, don't buy.

    Great smoke, buy more.

    If it has an XX then it gets dumped into the leftover jar lol.

    Well guys. As of July 21, the Post Office in Apple Valley. CA still has the box. If tanless1 doesn't pick it up in 5 days or so, it will be sent back to irishsmoker. If that happens, Irish, let me know and we'll get it sent to the next man in line.

    Edit: jameral has informed me that he will be out of the country, so if the box comes back, send it to Gecko13. I think he's next in line after jameral.

    I sent tanless1 a PM so hopefully, he will be able to take advantage of his turn. I'm glad so many people are feeling helpful! Thought about doin' a little helping myself... Irish is the lucky one. If tanless doesn't get it, he gets the box twice in a row!

    OK I got a confirmation from the Post Office that the Box has been sent back to Irish due to no pickup/delivery to Tanless1. Jameral has opted out this time around because he's going on vacation.Since we've had a couple of adds and a few drops, I'll need to send Irish the new list, so he's gonna have to open the box again. I'm sure he is troubled by the thought.

    Irish, send me your email so I can send you the new list!

    Next up is gecko13 in Cedar Rapids IA.

    Yeah. He's gonna slap himself when he realizes he missed the box. Irish can always make up the difference in tobacco, or maybe a pipe he's kicking himself for not grabbing the first time. I'm sure the box could stand to lose the weight. That sucker is packed! I sent a PM to gecko13 to make sure it's all good before irishsmoker sends.

    Once Irish gets the box and sends it to gecko13 I'll send an updated list. Jameral will be back on the map once he's back from vacation, but I don't know where I'll fit him in. There have been 2 new adds and 3 dropped so I'll post the sequence when Irish has the box. After Gecko13 it's still Jud and then ├╝ber and so forth.

    The stupid thing about "return to sender" packages is that the Post Office isn't required to update the tracking on it's way back to the sender...

    It's one of the most idiotic things I've ever heard. It you don't have it in a week it's lost. You better start sleeping with your mail carrier Irish. Otherwise you'll never see it lol.

    I think we need to put a LoJac system into the box. Or maybe a cellphone that will call "home" if not reset after a period of time. I hope it wasn't confiscated by some Neer-Do-Well over zealous postal worker thinking he has busted some drug ring.

    I once had a nissure where something I mailed out failed to make it to its destination because the idiot postal worker insisted I had the wrong zip code (which I'd used multiple times with no issues) and changed it- to one that was wrong. It finally made it back to me six weeks after I mailed it and it NEVER LEFT DALLAS. Even though it's apriority mail box, the USPS doesn't think it's a priority to get it back to you if there's a problem.

    Unfortunately, Spartan is correct. We are playing the waiting game now. If you get the chance, Irish, contact your local postmaster and tell them you are looking for the box.

    If the box don't make it back by mid September, we may want to consider creating a new one. This is why it's very important that anyone who requests being on the list have the stability and finances to be able to receive the box and to send it on. The usps is unreliable enough without any help from us.

    Just noticed your new title Mr. Samedi.....

    "The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It's the poor man's friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth."

    I'll volunteer! If we need to start a new box, everyone send me stuff, I'll sample load the box and send it to the next in line.

    Any updates on the box? Or are we just going to start a new new box.

    For future reference, how much does it actually cost to send it through the postal service? I checked, as an example, a FedEx shipment of 4 lbs from CA to VT was under $50 for 2-day delivery. I think, in my experience, using a courier rather than the USPS, is more reliable, but often times more pricey.


    Just try one small bowl and you will forever more be a Grousemoor whore.
