My box arrived earlier today. Attached is a photo of its contents. At least two, maybe three, items will be staying with me. Items I remove will be replaced with items of similar type and value.

Thanks to Adam for sending this to me, and Sos24 for starting the whole shebang!

Who's the next link in the chain?

Glad you got the box and see some items you like. 

It looks like Adam 5 was generous in his additions.

I didn't join in this fun and generous GAW because I had recently received a knife that Sherry gave away during the traditional knife challenge and I had the Pay it Forward package of goodies from Grant that I still had to forward and I wanted other people to have a chance at it.  The Pay it Forward package is now on its way to Surge in the UK and there's no reason they should be mutually exclusive.  So, if it's still available and if nobody else is stepping forward to take part in the Surprise Box GAW I'd love to receive one of the boxes because this is too much fun to end so soon.  The generosity of the members of this board is astonishing. We really have the best membership on the net.

I hadn't checked the tracking today. Normally it would have gone from the Opa Locka sorting facility directly to Miami International Airport and gone from there within a day or two. For some reason this one had to travel to New York first. :twak:
I hope it gets to you safely and without further delay. :cheers:

TBH I'm getting used to this (especially from CONUS and USPS vs RM)  ::)

I've had several parcels take the scenic route and one didn't even leave (nor was it returned to sender) :rant:

Prior experience would suggest another 10 "working" days (2 weeks) then, of course, import duty etc... :dwts:

I'll keep you updated via PM after this so as not to derail this excellent thread (well done Sherry  :tu: :2tu: )

Oooh, I really hope it doesn't take a month for my package to get to Surge in the UK.  I had included a couple of blocks of raw cookie dough that I wrapped in wire so they wouldn't bounce around in the package and I attached an electronic kitchen timer so Surge would know if they're still safe to eat when they get there.  Surge, if the clock's still ticking the dough hasn't gone off yet. :tu:

I hope not, too. I recently sent a package to Germany, and it took 11 days from dropoff at the Post Office till delivery.

On that note, your package will be on the way tomorrow!  :woohoo:

Alan's box is on the way. Here's a little teaser of some of its contents. Some might be obvious, others less so.

Well, the Surprise Box arrived and I am honestly surprised.  I'm surprised because it arrived sealed in a plastic bag, because the end of the box was open.  I've asked Dan for a content list including what condition everything was in so I'll be able to see if there's any loss or damage.  Will do the unboxing pics after I get that list from Dan. :bnghd:

I'm very grateful to Dan and Sherry for sending out this box and the contents that were provided by them both. Everything in the box is in good shape and I'm absolutely stoked about my goodies.  Unfortunately, a Spyderco Dragonfly doesn't seem to have made it so Dan's going to file a claim.  I just hope some postal worker somewhere is enjoying their new Spyderco as much as I would have.  Anyway, whoever wants some of this awesomeness next needs to PM their details and I should be able to get a box out Monday.  Don't worry, I'll use a new box.

A claim has been filed. Fingers crossed that it doesn't take them ages to process it. Meanwhile, hope the next lucky recipient posts their intent to participate soon!

That's too bad about the missing Spydie  :(

I always tape both ends and the flap on those priority boxes just to be safe.
