This sounds like it will be a good time. I can honestly say this will be my first box pass and I am looking forward to it. Any tips from the experienced guys are welcome.

I am going to start figuring out the routes tomorrow.

Ok Gentleman, unless I get more players between now and Sunday here will be the order of the two boxes which I am calling the East and West boxes just to keep things straight in my pea brain. Hopefully I figured this correctly so that you should see either the East or West box within nine passes from the last time you had a box. I tried to keep the boxes going by the shortest possible route except the East box will need to go from New York to California in the middle of it's pass. If postage is a problem please send me a private email and I will be more than willing to give you a little help with the postage. Without further ado here is the order in which you get to go bananas.

West East
1 TJ 1 Eggman
2 Puff Daddy 2 Jeepernick
3 Tin Man 3 Tom Clemons
4 Jhuggett 4 J_Rock
5 Lewtang 5 Bigsmoker
6 Carlos 6 Ego Archive
7 F.ferrill 7 Pipetongue1
8 Cigargod 8 Dock.J.Perry
9 Mr. Houston 9 MidnightBlues
10 Eggman 10 TJ
11 Jeepernick 11 Puff Daddy
12 Tom Clemons 12 Tin Man
13 J_Rock 13 Jhuggett
14 Bigsmoker 14 Lewtang
15 Ego Archive 15 Carlos
16 Pipetongue1 16 F.ferrill

Just out of curiosity . . . . what happens if someone gets two boxes at the same time? scratch Do they need to work doubletime or would they get a few extra days to sort it all out?


Not trying to stir up trouble . . . . . . . . just curious if that is a possibility. (What a troublemaker Rolling Eyes)

Hopefully the way I have scheduled the boxes (ref: chart) that should never happen. With everyone keeping the box six days plus transit time there "should" be at least nine weeks before you see the next box. If it happens we will work something out (as you suggested, probably more time with the second box). As an example; you are #3 on the West list and #10 on the East list. The only way you could end up with "both" boxes is that #2 held the West box for over nine weeks. The same scenerio should apply to everyone else's schedule.

Looks like this year, Babs is twins Very Happy I don't see these boxes ending up a heck of a lot smaller than last years Laughing
(For those who weren't in on last year, the box was nicknamed Babs - for Big ass box!)


Got my safety rope and fuzzy slippers, let the games begin!! Cool
