Thanks. Maybe I just missed them in amongst all the meta messages.

No problem, sometimes life gets in the way of the Great Box O' Crap game.

I like the spirit, keep the box matriculating down the field.. @RobbieTunes ain't gettin' any younger...

I don't use Google docs, I use GUGIE docs. It is inexorably linked to Page One, Post One.

I spent a few minutes with the BoC last night. I took out a couple items, put in a fair amount more, and replaced the box (it was a bit tattered). I did reuse a bit of the old box as reinforcement for the corners. Of course, I forgot to take a pic before sealing the box. Here's my haul:



I do like the idea of segregating stuff in the BoC using smaller boxes of crap. The "little parts" box was kind of smashed though, I think mostly because parts were sloshing around. I taped it up to try and contain its bits. If someone downstream has a sturdier little box, I think a swap would be a great idea.

Might take me another day to post the box...

Rotated, El Nino may be gone by then, giving the decals time to dry.

BOC landed Saturday. Processed Sunday. Will be shipped out Monday. Efficiency, gentleman, is our motto.

My cat is an outdoor cat and is so aloof that he is no longer curious. My daughter's "kitty" is, however.

As received:


Haul taken. I felt only a bit greedy, but these will all go to some nice projects (with 650b in the name). I plan to rebuild the light into LED - I just got a dynamo hub and this will absolutely be the bomb. The Centurion saddle may go on an old Centurion I have... or it may become art. The cover is starting to come off.


I replaced the little plastic box as it appeared to be falling apart.

A hint: the box is well padded now.

Heads up @SkyDog75

I just love riding a vintage road bike. The smooth speed and quick response of the steel has to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I know.

I will buy no more bikes forever.

Excellent use of chewed up cat toy.

Ansd good to see the vintage rear light, dropout adjusters, and VO sticker found a home!
