On second thought, I think this is a good opportunity to pass on this. I can sample aromatics until I'm sick, on smokingpipes, with the 40 bucks it'll cost to ship that thing. Go ahead with your audit, sir.

Oh wow my apologies. Must've miss read the list in the box, or maybe gotten the pages mixed up. I gotta say it's a decent box as is, I've only had an opportunity to sample 5 or 6 blends but there's a lot of good in there.

Not to mention the goodies I'm about to add to the box! Let me know either way, no pressure from me, just want to see where this experience goes.

If the rest of my week is looking like today I'll probably be ready to ship Box 2.0 by/before this weekend. I'll do a quick little audit/update for everyone too before then.

Mac Baren "7 Seas"
GLP "Virginia Cream"
GLP "Haddo's Delight"
Samuel Gawith "Kendal Flake"
Stokkebye "Luxe Twist Flake"
Sutliff "Sobranie #759"
Peterson's "X'mas '15"
Prince Albert "Cherry Vanilla"
The Squire "Sunset"
The Squire "Fountain Crune"
The Squire "Bodega Bag"
The Squire "Walter's Choice"
@7charbs "Maker's Spark"
Russ "Coco-Nut"
"March Model"
Newminster "No 17 English Luxury"
Kramer's "Danny Kage"

Amphora "Black Cavendish"
"Mixture No 79"

And 4 no name/no label bags.

Open & Sealed Tins:

Samuel Gawith "Squadron Leader"
GH&Co "Ennerdale Flake"
GLP "Quiet Nights"
Low Country "Waccaman"
SPC "Plum Pudding"
ESO "Tilbury"
Le Petit Robin

Misc/Others:

Hand Sanitizer

Savinelli Balsa Filters
Carbon filters
Sir Walter Scott's snuff
McChrystal's Raspherry Snuff
Amphora Panel Billiard Pipe

What I added:

GLP "Cairo" opened tin
C&D "Epiphany" open tin ---> apparently a match for Einstein's preferred blend.
SPC "Mississippi River" open tin
C&D "Bayou Morning Flake" ziplock
Dan's Tobacco "Salty Dog" plug
GH&Co "American Sweet Peach" ziplock

And also two of my personal blends -
"Swirl Milkshake Frog on a Log" --> Frog Morton on the Bayou match attempt with chocolate-vanilla-milkshake topping
"Devil's Blend #016" --> collection of stronger Virginias (shakes of McC's 40th too), perique, and some burley/cavendish to balance.

If anyone ends up trying my blends would be very curious to hear your impressions!

It's seems like it's been a while since we've heard where the box is. Status?
I received the box a few months back. Still haven’t opened it. Lol.

There has been a lot of movement at my work since I was promoted to management. Not sure if I will be able to do the next box pass as coordinator. If any one would be interested let me know.

Toker -

Since I was the last to send you the box, I'd be happy to further this cause if there's enough interest for another round of box passing. What will a fairly "stationary" year, I'd be for once happy to have an excuse to get down to the Post Office 😂
