Wait, there's a Safety Precautions part in the instructions?!

Hello
There was a demand for pics so I will post my goodies.
I took 2 as it was awfully hard to decide.
I do not have any SOG gear so took that chance.
I also happened to a have suitable battery for the Fenix torch so that left the box as well. I mean I only have about 7 torches so one more will not hurt.
2 items were placed back in the box.
Thanks again to the US team for the box.

 :cheers:

I have made a decision. I think.  :think:

Where am I sending the box? I don't think it's staying in NZ so off to Oz it goes.
ReamerPunch, you're fairly active in this thread... PM me your address.  :pok:

I’ll give this a bump.  Such a sad thing when you can’t giveaway items.

Sorry everyone, I'm holding things up. :surrender:
Things are a bit tight here but I should be able to post the box in a couple of days. I also have to write a novel about everything inside it for customs.  :bnghd:

Yeah the customs forms have changed and are now a complete smurf around.
And if you do it in the post shop there is an additional $5 fee for processing the customs form.
What used to be cheap and easy is now expensive and a hassle.

Looks like I have to withdraw from this for the time being. :(

Syncop8r, please do not send the package to me.

So... the box is finally on it's way across the ditch... to munecito!

I had a rather painful experience at the post office where they wanted me to list each item, it's weight and value. :shrug:
This was on one of the hottest days of the Summer so far. Lazy guesswork ensued...

I decide to take this lovely MP600 (which I figured came with the sheath it was in):





Thank you very much to whoever donated it and to everyone else who donated items.  :hatsoff:  :cheers:

I believe there are still 20 or so items in the box and they are all (I think) lower value items so I have a suggestion for the original box senders to consider: that each participant may take two items without replacement rather than the one. I believe this will help the box keep moving and run it's course. Whaddaya reckon?

I think that would be fine. 

I hope so. :cheers:

It would take more than people taking two items for there not to be a box of items to make it to you, because there were some generous people along its travels.

Ditto  :ahhh    :ahhh    :ahhh

Of the three items I put into the box, I know that Alan kept one of them and Dan (Farmer X) kept one. But I don't know the fate of the third item.

I don't know what happened to any of the three items I put in. But the contribution from Adam that stayed with me has proven very handy!
