I don't know if it's everywhere, but where I lived in Maplewood, NJ, the post office required the letter carriers to walk across the lawns. We had to accept that. I didn't mind, but I'm sure some did.

As a garbageman back in the early eighties, I walked across the lawn all the time. But I would have been picking up a box of crap...

BoC Received as of last night, pics are coming. Might need an extra day as I didn't know how many decals there were, just printed a fresh batch and will need to cure them.

One last shot for the Barking Chihuahua on this edition, great to see that we'll be loaded up with the one thing that everyone wants.

Was wondering about the box myself. I know @RaleighSport was printing stickers to add to the box. I hope all is well as he is not someone we need to worry about not forwarding the box.

Does anyone know if @RaleighSport is OK? Heard anything? Not like him to hold the box this long and I see he has only one post in BikeForums the day after he received the box. Hope all is well.

Maybe we should require participants to provide you with an email address and a phone number.

Remember, he had to make new decals. I spoke with him yesterday and they're now done and he'll be sending it along today or tomorrow to @gugie. I had him skip me as I took delivery of a secondary BOC at the Seattle Bike Swap.

It should only be a couple/three days before it arrives in Orygon for the final push.

Yep, the Barking Chihuahua gets special dispensation. Who doesn't want one of these?

Thump.

And so it happens. The BOC has landed.

Jackson is bribed by treats to get into the opening shot.


The reveal.



The take.



That's a wrap, folks. Box is on it's way to Crandress for the 7th Edition of the Box of Crap game!
