    Is anyone interested in a Canadian Box of Crap pass around?

    I'd be happy to facilitate, though I don't have a box full of crap to pass on, but I certainly have stuff to add to it.

    Any takers? Bobman90 - maybe we could scrounge a box of crap up between us

    I might play. Any guess on the shipping cost - is there an expected size for a standard box of crap?

    I actually travel back & forth to the US pretty often, no reason why we couldn't bring the box of crap from down south up here for a little tour of Canada, I suppose. Should I jump in on that and get it sent to my US address?

    That sounds like it could be cool. How often do you pick up at your US address?

    It's a nice thought but Canada Post doesn't have a flat rate box. 22 pounds of crap will cost you at least $25 to ship inter-provincially. It puts a damper on getting rid of crap.

    I'd be in if there's a good shipping option available.

    On average, I estimate once per month I'll be crossing back & forth. My US destinations will typically be Detriot area and/or north central Indiana-Ohio border area.

    Within Canada, I may get one or two shots at hand-carry air delivery between YYZ and YWG from now to August. Might even be able to shoot it over to YVR or YQQ after staging at YWG.

    For any cross-border or air exercises, I would want to inspect the contents of the box, so I can truthfully answer any questions from the authorities.

    Might be a good plan to cut back on the heavy items if we have to ship inside Canada.

    I guess the international box-o-crap game went over like a lead balloon. What about reviving a Canada only box-o-crap? Maybe Greyhound would make shipping reasonable: http://www.shipgreyhound.ca/en/servi...fs/ontario.pdf

    Depends on what it might cost and what sort of stuff we're looking at passing around, I dunno if I have nice enough crap to merit spending 10$ to send it someone else that may or may never want or need it... wow that sounds a lot more dour than I actually mean it to... guess what I'm saying is that I think my crap it too crappy to participate in this game.
