...and it's off to the Good Doctor on the east coast!

Here's most of what I dug out this time:


Also forgot to put back in a shifter cable and a pair 6-speed Shimano 600 shift levers I was thinking on, so by default, they are sticking with me, too. Anyone needs those, there are a couple more pairs in the box.

Hey, @crandress , you changed the order. You were on bottom, and then I said add me. What, you think I'll provide you with special crap or something?

@noglider Do you have special crap? Wow, then I am in!

No I am just trying to shake up the order, so we are not all sending to the same peoples. Not sure how to do that effectively. May even move myself down further down the list. I just want to keep in interesting. Would be nice if more would join, so we can just switch it up organically. And certainly don't want to appear I am favoring myself or anyone else for that matter.

A reminder that the Crapmaster owns the rules, and can make, break, or modify them at anytime, for any reason. Be advised that the reason is always 100% logical if one were to view the world omnisciently as the Crapmaster does.

Maybe keep the first perhaps five fixed, then every time or two the box changes hands, randomly shuffle the names below that. Once someone gets into the top five things settle down.

Keep 'em guessing.

I've been through this, what, eight times? And I've never received or sent the box to the same people twice. I'd prefer to keep things in the order requested, so one can plan ahead. It takes some time to accumulate junk, so if I get shuffled towards the front of the queue, I may not have much.

I agree. In fact, most of the folks I've sent the box to aren't even active participants on BF, anymore.

Oh. Ah... maybe you shouldn't let me play this game anymore

I will assume you want to be added to the end of the list once you have played a round, so if you would like to be removed or delayed, just let me know and I will make it so.

This is my 3rd time around for the BOC and each time there has always been interesting stuff.

The tease.



My takes. I rode a lot on Biopace and love them.



Somebody must have got a new GPS.



These are cool, I plan to put on my office desk.



The box will be in the mail on Monday. It was fun to play again. Thanks!
