Imagine my surprise when I cut open the box and a cat claw came out! Good thing it was a shallow cut.

Glad the box is getting less crappy! Wonder what happened to all the stuff I put in, it's not in there but I haven't seen it in any of the pictures. A good amount of perfectly functioning 2-3 year old parts there

I suspect I have one of yours, I wanted to finish the build before I post it though.

None of my stuff could be considered "vintage" and I still got to play, I'm sure you can too! DD will probably add you in the next round of adds.

All the latest request for add, beginning with Chitown_Mike, have been added. yellowbarber: you were added a few days ago.

For those of you new to the game, please reveiw Post #1 for the rules. Yep - there are rules

Pictures, folks. I'm not sure what I'm reading in some of the most recent comments, but it seems some stuff was put into the box recently, has not shown up in pics posted of what people have removed but are also not showing up in the photos of the box? Is that what I'm seeing? I hope not. That would suck.

No. The box tends to weigh at least 20lbs on average and that would be cost-prohibitive to send out of the US. The only way it works in the US is because we're using a flat-rate USPS box.

Got the BOC today! Did a quick run through, but need to go through it more carefully and get a new box. Probably ship out on Thursday since I will not be able to do that until Wednesday. I will send a PM for the next person's address. Nice to see most of the stuff I put in on the last go around is gone, and no, I don't believe it was the useless crap that was discarded. I actually saw the best items go quickly.

Here is the box as I got it:

But if you *really* want to play, you can use me to faciltitate your participation. I'm just a quick (1hr 50min) ferry ride from Victoria BC. (Port Angeles, WA)

And I operate a hotel a block from the ferry landing. We're always welcoming to our Canadian cousins who want to visit. And BF members always get a significant discount.

Cool - I might just have to PM you about that discount sometime this spring! Been too long since I've been over in that neck of the woods...

Do it! And bring northbend and scozim, and rogerm, and kactus, and aemmer, dfrost, and the rest of the western Washington gang. We'll do that ride up to Hurricane Ridge, or the metric century loop we do around here.

Who else we got around this part of the country? eschlwc down in Lake Tapps? And crandress, so we can get a closer look at that lovely Mercian in in his avatar. I already talked to wildwood about these rides and he said he's not doing those kind of grinds anymore. Maybe spacemanz, if his lungs can hold out?

PNW Gang: we should totally do this

And hell yes spacemanz gonna be on the list; I've got selfish reasons for adding him in addition to wanting to get an even larger PNW C&V group ride together.

I'll PM you this weekend and see if we can't get some basic planning started. As for myself, I won't be back in the states until April, and won't really be available for any riding until the beginning of May, so we've got plenty of time to plan this right.

Sweet, I just recently picked up a bunch of odds and ends, most I can't use but are in good condition, plus I have some other stuff that will go well and hopefully get some use!

BoC arrived today! I've already been in touch with the next person in line, I'll be sending this back out hopefully Friday, maybe Saturday. It looks like the box took quite a beating, two large holes with parts literally falling out. I'm going to grab a new box and go through the box. Upon first glance, it looks like some items may have been broken during shipping, what do you guys want me to do with anything broken? Toss it and replace with something else? Pics to come, I have a super busy week. In school all day then work...16-18 hour days. Testing for my CDL tomorrow and its my 12 hour day at school.
