What is it?  :pok:
The contribution from Adam that stayed with me was a Gerber Mullet. As for those I put in? I'd have to know what y'awl kept.

The others I kept were a Case Sod Buster Jr and a Victorinox Climber. I believe Sos24 contributed both.

I kept most of what I received.  :whistle:  However, I replaced what I took out so the box I sent out had the same or higher retail value as what I received.  I know that complicates things for those trying to figure out what the current box might have in it. Sorry. :twak:

Perhaps we should start a list?

01 munecito          QLD
02 ReamerPunch  NSW
03 Echotech           NSW Sydney
04 pietervn            NSW Sydney
05 Valkie                NSW

Apologies if I have missed anyone. You guys could reorganize it to suit what works better for postage/distance.

The box is currently 26 days into it's 10 day postage to munecito.  :think:

I think Auspost have been really struggling, particularly with packages from overseas.  Last week I received several items that have been AWOL for months (one was 4 months overdue).  I have a vision of a large AusPost warehouse with a huge pile of undelivered mail items, and an Auspost employee (or contractor) going around picking out packages at random from the pile saying to himself:  "Who's lucky today ?  Looks like it is Greg in Canberra !  "   :rofl:   >:(

I think you are right, but the holiday season must have added too. I sent a parcel to Perth, it took 4 weeks to get there. Yes we have a big country, but that is taking the p.ss. Maybe the premier of WA is stopping post too... who knows.

Hopefully the parcel is here already and just waiting on "lucky picking" as Greg says.

Try the Austpost tracking site with the tracking number, might give you a bit more info.

This is interesting.  I ordered something from Australia and it took 2 weeks before the item even was put on a flight to US.  I thought it was just because of international, but I guess not.

My wife sent a birth gift (new baby) and it was only to Sydney, less than 100k away, took two weeks.
Would have been better to deliver it ourselves.

I didn't think you were allowed to post babies these days?  :dunno:


By the way, munecito received the package a couple of days ago.  :tu:
