How do I get in on this....?  :pok:

By the way, I heard a month or two back that USPS are no longer shipping to NZ.  :dunno:

Unfortunately, that is true. Looks like it's temporary, but an inconvenience nevertheless.

Hello Awl
One big step closer - the package landed in Auckland yesterday and  has left the airport.
Delivery may even be tomorrow, Wednesday but probably Thursday I would pick. Awl rather exciting.
Not much   :popcorn: left to go.

Hey Syncop8r.
NZPost's youshop facility takes about 10 days from the US to NZ for a fee which includes gst etc but is way quicker than usual USPS.

I've never heard that one before! And you're welcome...though my contribution was small, I'd like to think it was quality.

Hello there.
Ok so the  magical box will be given to Postman Pat ( or should that be Postperson) in about half an hour.
With a bit of luck Syncop8r will be unwrapping  :mail: on Monday.

Thanks again to the US team for the contributions .

 :cheers:

The package arrived today. They could have delivered it yesterday but didn't try very hard (they wouldn't come through the closed gate. I was in the shower at the time).

Decisions decisions....

Is anyone else in NZ keen on this or is it crossing the ditch?  :pok:

How about some pictures of what was kept?  It will still be a surprise to the next person as long as you don't show what you're sending on. :cheers:

If any NZ members want in on this, come forth.  :pok:
Because if you come fifth you get a toaster.

I am so happy that the package arrived and has been enjoyed by at least a couple more members. 

Hopefully someone else will chime in for a gift.

I need to pick something and move this on. No one in NZ has piped up so I guess it's heading to Oz next?  :think:  Perhaps an Aussie member can PM me their address?

I'm slightly interested.
However it's not like I need anything.
And after I top up the box with more goodies, postage to oz will cost a fortune.

I don't think we top it up. It just gets less and less down the line.

Hmmm, I might try to pick the heaviest item.  :whistle:

Well once you post a pic of what you're keeping I'll flip a coin to decide if I'm in or not.

Is that what we were supposed to do?  I thought if we took something out we had to put something else in to maintain the same value as the original package before sending it on.  :oops: :twak:

Each recipient, can keep one item without replacing.  If more than one item is kept then the recipient should provide an item of their own to add to the box before forwarding to the next.
