    Sorry guys! I visited the post office personally Monday and was asked to leave after a few coarse words.

    Not another one...... there is probably some postal worker with a good TAD supply.

    That is a bad policy to not have return tracking. Maybe next time we should get insurance for the box.

    Tanless never got it and when I sent a request to have it returned to irish, ehe USPS seid it Bad already neen returned to sender. Maybe give it until the 15th and we'll see about a new one. It sucks you can't track a returned box.

    Sho 'Nuff. I figger if the box stays disappeared, we can all send small packages to me, I can combine them and get a new Priority Mail box and start it on its way again. If the old one reappears we can either combine them or see how long two boxes last this time.

    The box has been in limbo for almost a month and a half. IMHO lets do what Baron says or we may be waiting a long time for the chance to open this box. It is no ones fault, s&*T happens! So that is my .02 cents, lets get this rolling again!

    Baron,
    PM me your address again and I'll send you some stuff. Can't make it tomorrow to the meet.

    Oh... and are we starting the list from the top again

    "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."

    Great, guys. PM forthcoming, Mick. The box is going to Gecko13 who was supposed to get it and then on from where it left off. I'm just compiling the new box and I already have a Priority Mail Box ready.

    Here is the current list. If I have omitted you or you wish to be taken off, just send me a PM. This list is in the proper order. If you have the box, make sure and PM the next guy on the list to make sure he is available. Maybe we can avoid another lost box that way. Also you can try to hand off the box in person. It's a great way to meet up with another piper!

    Back in July, dude. The post office had it, but it was never picked up. It was allegedly returned to irishsmoker in early August but then it fell off the map. You might want to inquire at your local PO since it has disappeared. Who knows? It may still be sitting there. They don't track once it's returned to sender.

    I have had my doubts that the PO really sent it back to you even though they told me they did. If you track the package now, it says it was delivered to tanless1 today (9/13/12) at 1:47pm.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Wow. I sure do hope that box was found. Some kool stuff in there.

    It figures that the story develops right after we all gave up hope and then the box showed some movement.

    Hold on... tanless is in Idaho but someone picked up the box ?? Better be someone he knows

    If not, I hope at least we pissed off a nutwhack sushi-lovin' prius driving anti-smoking lobbyist. Might just give him something to get excited about

    Disclaimer: I like sushi, have nothing against prius, but loathe anti-smoking lobbyists. The combination just makes it worse

    Tanless PM'd me and he's got people checking it out. If his people find it, they will be instructed to send it to the next man in line, which in that list is either Gecko13 or Jameral. I'm pretty sure it's jameral, because I was going to give tanless an updated list when jameral went on vacation. I told him to keep me posted, but since an unknown 3rd party will be handling it, we may know before he does. Whoever gets the box can just do the normal pass and send it on. I'll get the updates together when it gets to Jud.
