Very entertaining and vicarious fun to read. Question: If everyone adds even 1/10 more crap than they take out, within a month or so, won't the box be so crapheavy it'll start costing $$$$ to ship?

Do you mean "where is realestvin7 with his confirmation of receipt and photos?"

If so, I am on it.

ALERT: we're at the 1 month point. If you are on the list in post #1 and haven't checked into the net (as we say in the radio communications world) by the end of the weekend, you will be removed.

I think if someone was on the list and was still interested in playing the game, they'd have dropped us a line by now

I went through the names and checked all the posts; for brevity's sake, the following members have not yet made their presence known on this new BOC thread:

Chef Bigs (this one is pretty surprising to me)
J. Wolfe
mtnbike
rookgirl

So, I will be removing those names from the list Sunday evening. realestvin7, please check in and give everyone a status; a review of the post #1 rules might also be a good idea

I'm willing to cut him some slack. He hasn't had any activity on the site since the 25th. Possible he's busy with important things.

Maybe he has some time to toss a 20" wheeled kids bicycle in the box. That would be awesome.

It sucks to feel obliged to keep such a close eye, but you know, the rules were there from the very first post. They're pretty simple, too. As has been noted - not for the first time - this is not rocket science.

It's not about me, anyway - I'm not down the list waiting on the box to come to me, after all

Well I suppose realestvin7 could check into the thread and find out that information himself. It appears we should have eliminated him when he didn't check into the thread.

Thanks for the update, dwellman.

UPDATE: I sent PMs to both dwellman and realestvin7 and received a response from dwellman to the effect that realestvin7 received the box on Friday and was intending to send the box on Saturday to mikeybikes. Thanks for the update, dwellman

I have no idea why anyone on the recipient list cannot be bothered (yup, that's the phrase I'm using) to update to this thread with receipt date, photos and send-on date. Those were the rules spelled out in post number one. And Rule Number One was and still is "If you can't play by the rules, don't play".

Out riding, doing whatever - hey, those are excuses, not reasons - not if you have the time to post in other threads, sell stuff and PM.

Will the current owner either PM me with the status or check into the thread?

DD

I got a PM from the current box-holder. It appears it will get underway to mikeybikes soon.

Sorry everyone, but we're currently in a holding pattern; somebody else is dictating the terms of the game at this point.

Yeah, I said it.

He sent me the USPS tracking number: 9405503699300498250887

It should be on its way to me. I promise a quick turn around once I get it.

Cool - please post or let me know when you get it so I can catch up the gap in the first post for tracking. Oh, and it looks like atmdad is out so photogravity is now the follow-on - unless you guys have newer information I don't

Crap Tracker?

Input the tracking number at packagemapping.com and get a visual display map of exactly where the Crap is.
