Unless someone else put one in, thats the one I tossed in that came off a 74 Raleigh Sprite I was stripping. Glad it found a home with family!

@the sci guy, Thanks!

I really think it'll give me an excellent fit on the Super Course.

The list of participants is getting shorter. Does anyone want to be added? Someone who has been lurking, but never participated? Anyone want back in? Just let me know!

And if anyone is interested in taking over the Duties of Crapmaster, please let me know!

The Box enjoyed extremely changeable climactic conditions during it's little stay-over here in Southwest Virginia. It is now loaded onto the overland stage for its journey to the land where aquatic mammals are an infestation. Pictures follow:

Arrival



Teaser. The plexiglass is a nice touch.


The "take" (with projects for my wife's bicycles in mind

Box o' Crap Lands in Prison!


Apparently our little traveling box has run afoul of The Law. It was scheduled to arrive in my P.O. box yesterday but it has gone astray. Here is the latest tracking information:



San Quentin State Prison is only a 30 mile bike ride from my house, so hopefully our portly little package will bust out soon and make a rapid run to the safety of my P.O. Box.

More information to follow as events unfold.

Good gravy. My receipt clearly indicates the zip code 94956. Thanks for the heads-up. If unmarked vehicles swarm my house, I'll at least have an inkling of why.

Crapmaster who? Quickly distancing myself from my followers, I mean stalkers. It was all them, I had nothing to do with it officers...

No photographic evidence.

However, if you want to have a little fun, when dropping the box off, and being questioned by the postal clerk, ask for a definition of "hazardous".

The Box o' Crap is out of prison!
I picked it up from my local post office today. I didn't see its picture posted on the wall.
It offered no explanation. I thought it better to ask no questions.

I heard that you were good, but picking up the BOC from prison takes the prize!
Let's hope that they got all the contraband out before you pick it up.

Oh that? I thought it was talc - the good baby powder that they used to use, what gives you cancer but works better in tires than the new corn starch based stuff. I took half the baggie and I've been sprinkling it inside tubulars before sewing them back up! No wonder the airport dogs are all so interested in my rinko bag...

Here is my take from the beneficent box. My thanks to those anonymous crapmongers who donated these items. The box is very full, but I managed to squeeze in a few items that I hope will be well received. I repackaged the crap in a new box and sent it on to mgopack42 this morning. It weighs in at a hefty 25.4 Lbs!

BoC received, first time with a nice new box!

As received, check out the pristine box!

Sneak peek into BoC

My take.
i had to search for the thread, weekends make lots of posts. I will send out as soon as 2cam16 replies to my tardy email, and the PO opens after a long holiday weekend.
