    A friend just brought me back some beer from wisconsin that I will be sharing with someone who has a great college sport rivalry in their state...

    Ncaudle, winner winner chicken dinner! I knew it was a risky clue.
     
  5. As a citizen of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I feel slighted...
     
  6. Sorry about the late post! I'm stuck on my phone internet, my home connection is broken :( I will post a hint today :)
     
  7. I'll be shipping north and West, I can hit a few wants and they will be getting a nice box :)

    welcome to the party diceman! i'm gonna be shipping somewhere that has recently had bad weather. also i think my target should play the following song while opening the box.

    Pelican5 Savant (320) California Feb 4, 2012

    Thats the song that was running thru my head when I opened your box... it was monstrous

    The contents of my box has been secured except for the glassware. Hopefully shipping out Tuesday.
     
  11. I will not be the first to ship. Have to make an out of state beer run to grab a want or two for my target. In the meantime, hint #2:

    Stuffed a large box with beer today, may have to separate it out into 2 boxes, must be near 50lbs... Shipping out this week to a state where the worlds first skyscraper was built.

    i think the fix is in on this bif.

    Will be sending out early next week, shipping will be cheaper than the $300 flight to my targets city

    Shipping to a place there the shoreline is long

    I've packed a box full and ran out of space. I wanted to include a 32oz growler but just ran out of space. I'm bummed that I can't include the growler but I'd still be happy as hell to recieving a box like this.

    My target does a good job of giving an idea of the king of beers that they have had, want, or should want. Hopefully I'll be shipping tomorrow.

    dumptruck81 Savant (370) Texas Dec 28, 2011

    Lmao. "king of beers". Fucking auto correct! Don't worry, nobody is getting Budweiser.

    Still haven't gotten too far at putting my box together -- but have no fear, its only because my target's wants give me so many options! Once I finally decide on the beers, this box will be headed to someone who has been on BA longer than me.
     
  20. Another hint: my target's address is in the same town as a moderately famous actor of questionable talent.

    Perhaps someone from Animal House?
     
  22. Perhaps. Perhaps not...

    In (around) three days, a box will arrive in the state where the sequel to the game I sunk the most time in on my xbox360 is being developed. It's an FPS with a threadbare story. The whole point of playing to find a bigger, better gun - but the humor and art direction help a lot too.

    My box shipped yesterday. It's headed somewhere that has won both the superbowl and the stanley cup.

    For those that have already shipped and when the others ship, can you send me your tracking #. I want to be able to make sure I keep track of everyone shipping.

    Thanks.
     
  26. That puts me on the short list
     
  27. Bjohnston

    Bjohnston Aficionado (145) Kentucky Dec 24, 2011

    My boxes were dropped off today. Would anticipate a two or three day trip max.
     
  28. dumptruck81

    dumptruck81 Savant (370) Texas Dec 28, 2011

    Short list indeed. I think there are only 2 states...
     
  29. laxer8811

    laxer8811 Savant (350) New York Sep 13, 2006

    I think my target maybe dead, he has posted less than me in this BIF
     
  30. match1112

    match1112 Initiate (0) Illinois Mar 2, 2011

    Don't ship until they participate! That's where the fun is!
     
  31. laxer8811

    laxer8811 Savant (350) New York Sep 13, 2006

    Def not me......oh buffalo.....
     
  32. At least you have pro teams, we have... Buffalo.


    As a bills fan I feel your pain.
     
  33. match1112

    match1112 Initiate (0) Illinois Mar 2, 2011

    still trying to round up beers off of my targets wants list. hope i'm not the last to ship, but if i am, my target should really enjoy the box he's gettin.
     
  34. ncaudle

    ncaudle Advocate (610) Virginia May 28, 2010

    I've got my box around 50%-ish done. should be mostly done within another week.

    hint: my city and my targets play each other quite a lot in soccer...
     
  35. I think I now know who's shipping to me! I had it down to you and one other BA, and this clue just doesn't fit.
     
  36. duceswild

    duceswild Advocate (740) Maryland Feb 8, 2010

    my target has posted less times then me so far.
     
  37. match1112

    match1112 Initiate (0) Illinois Mar 2, 2011

    My target keeps updating his wants. Alot.
     
  38. Bjohnston

    Bjohnston Aficionado (145) Kentucky Dec 24, 2011

    2 packages just landed!
     
  39. Hint #something: Unfortunately, I've only got two of my target's Wants hit so far, but I'm taking a trip to two states to the north of me today, and have a list of four of his other Wants to try to track down while I'm on the road...
     
  40. ncaudle

    ncaudle Advocate (610) Virginia May 28, 2010

    oh yes, 2 packages did indeed land with a 3rd of glassware to arrive later.
    BJohnston - HOLY WOW!

    will post pics shortly...
