    Does anyone know the status of Funhausen?

    In November, we struck an agreement on a trade. I sent my end of the deal out Nov 12. For various reasons, we agreed to delay his shipment to me till later (not really defined).

    At this point, I have been trying to get in touch with him for the better part of the last month. His last message to me was 12/13 (he wanted to assure he was getting me some fresh Abrasive). My messages to him since that date have gone unanswered. It doesn't even look like he's logged onto BA since Christmas Day.

    I traded with him earlier in the year with no problem or delay, which is why I sent my shipment to him with no concern. Dude seems to have an accomplished history of trades with others - I have to figure there's something going on outside the world of beer for this guy.

    Does anyone know the 411 on Funhausen?

    Did you get his email or phone #? would seem that would be easiest way to get in touch with him...If not, that is a decent mistake on your part...With that said, I really hope things work out...That is a long time to go MIA..

    Nope - didn't get his email or phone #. Rookie trader mistake on my part.

    2 4-packs of JA Kiwi Rising for 2 4-packs of Surly Abrasive. His last message to me was he was going to ship "next week".

    So the package from Funhausen did finally arrive. He apologized for going AWOL for a while, but did eventually deliver.

    Cheers!

    Yeah - a nice extra to have added to the pot. Pretty happy about it.
