Who's next?  You get the box.  You pick out what you want to keep.  You send the box on to the next recipient.  Adding to the box is optional, and shipping a medium priority box costs $17.10.  You can reach in there without looking and find something worth more than you'll spend on shipping.  That's as simple as it gets.  Just copy the list and add your name to it.  :2tu:

  Just so the newcomers know, you DON'T post a photo of what is in the box when you get it or when you ship it.  That spoils the surprise element.  Also, you MUST post a photo of the items you keep.  Shipping by priority mail is the quickest, cheapest, safest way to do it.  Boxes and labels are free at any post office.  Insurance for $100 is also free with priority mail.  If you want extra insurance, that is up to you.  You will need a roll of packing tape.  Walmart, Dollar Tree, whatever.  The wide, clear kind is best.  Have fun.  Best wishes.  Gary

You new guys are going to be shocked at the generosity of the members of this community.  Sos originally sent out a few pieces in a small priority box and her idea was if you see something you like take it, then send it on to somebody else until the box is empty.  The problem was the box never got emptied because everyone who got it added to it until it grew so much it was divided into 2 medium priority boxes one of which was sent overseas as the down under edition.  They've both been moving steadily now for 2 or 3 years and many of us are repeat customers because it's so much fun seeing what's been added to the box since the last time you saw it. :cheers:

It is funny to think of what started as just a desire to giveaway (in a different fun way) a few items I didn’t use, turned out to be what it is now.  And there have been some really nice items passed on through the generosity of several members via the box.

    Love is contagious, Sherry.  I got my first Leatherman from the box.  Maybe you didn't put it there, but you are responsible all the same.  I think my favorite memories from other members had to be Catherine's cute purple knife.  Also, the member who kept out a couple of cheap multi-tools for the neighborhood kids.  Youngsters remember things like that forever.  Or the time someone gave Mom a carry pouch.  I hope the box keeps circulating around and brings a little entertainment for many more trips across the country.  Thank you, Sherry.  Best wishes.  Gary

Hasn't posted in almost 2 weeks.  That is some cause for concern unless the other moderators have some clue as to his whereabouts.

We don't know anything more than you guys on Aloha's absence. I've reached out to him but so far haven't heard back. Hopefully he's on vacation or just taking a break from the internet. If I hear something I'll let you all know.

I've sent Aloha a post card via U.S. mail.  Hopefully he will reply here soon anyway, but if not he should get the post card in a couple of days and then he or his family will know we are thinking of him.
