Since we're starting with your crap, I think this is a great idea.

They didn't let you join the BOC passaround did they? I was told this was only for folks 25 and older!

i put in like 10 reflectors, some bar ends and a cable lock which i couldn't figure out the combo for.

I hope everyone had a great Easter, the BOC had landed Sat afternoon but I was in no condition to deal with it until yesterday ( My back is out) and I picked out a couple goodies that are going to go to good use with some of my up coming projects. I was able to almost double the weight of the box with some of the Crap I put in so the box is now filled with some useful crap. It will be hitting the post office in a few hours and on to Drummerboy.

Glenn


This is what I Kept and can use, 144 chainring for a 144 crank I have that I needed a ring for to become a SS crankset I have plans for, a 25.4 seat post w/zero setback for my DB Serrento I will be putting together soon, a close ratio 5spd FW that I want to use on the same bike I am going to use the 144 crankset on and a aluminum mount for a rack I have that is missing a clamp, oh and a Suntour RD mounting bolt I needed for a V Luxe GT. I also kept a 22.2 hinged cruiser/ATB stem stem for a double clamp set of bars I wanted to use

Nice, I'm glad you have a use for that stem and post. They've been bouncing around my shed with no use for a long time. Too nice to toss but no need for them either. I was pretty tempted on that chainring just for coolness factor, but I don't have a 144 crank. Any idea what the V stands for?

I have no idea what the V stands for unless it's for Vuelta, but it is cool looking and it will work on a 144 crank that I have no idea where I got it from but I had no rings for it. You will see all the stuff I pulled out being used at some point in the near future. Can't wait till we start the next game I love it and I always have plenty of Crap to put in it.

Seriously? We started Round 4 on the 30th of March and you still have no contact from the follow-on recipient? Sounds like it's time to give up on that guy...

Perhaps we should re-think the list; it might be time to simply hold the box for a day, put the word out that if you're interested speak up or you will be passed up!

There are currently members on the list that I've not seen much from, so they may be on to other projects or whatever. That's absolutely fine - no problem.

If you are on the list, please contact the next person down on the list ASAP. Don't wait - the box is moving along pretty quickly and it appears that the only thing that's going to slow it down is determining the address/playing-status of the next person on the list.

Come on, everyone; don't force the game to have to begin all over again.

Drummerboy1975: hold the box for 24 hours. If you don't get an answer back from Russ32 by then, PM the next on the list.

And, sorry to say this, but if you can't get ahold of the next person on the list after that, I give up. I will erase the list in the first post and open it up on a first-come, first served basis based on posts to this thread. That way we'll all know who's still in and who's out.

Fingers crossed and all that

DD

Good deal - please PM Dwellman for his mailing address as soon as you can - we need to get a good idea who's still playing and who's not.

Thanks!

Well, I'm interested, but I need to see how many posts I have. (I suspect I'm still < 50 - post count, not age ...)

Edit. Well what do you know. I've almost posted my age!

Okay, add me to the list.

Does the last in line get to keep the BOC or does he have to start a new thread?

It is moving pretty well, huh? Looking at the dates everyone has been kind enough to report we've gotten the box to three users in 10 days. Not too shabby, folks - keep it moving

And please - next recipient shoot a pic of the box opened showing the contents as-found - but not all spread out. Sort of a teaser for the next on the list
