    My target lives in the city where I went to College. Still working on the box, I wish my target had a few more wants.
  2. Every one of your hints can be applied to me.

    <fingers crossed>

    My target will be receiving a box next Tuesday. Box includes 9 or 10 wants. Sorry I forgot to include a note, but if you get something from Orange CA, on Tuesday it's probably from me.
  4. I'm heading to a brewery today to get a bottle of 'should be want'. This beer has been compared to Tart of Darkness, but seems to be liked a bit more. Shipping (hopefully) on Monday.

    There is something on my targets profile that made me think of this guy:

  5. Hint #6 My box will be heading out sometime next week and traveling about 2900 miles northwest of me. I'm just waiting for a few VT goodies to come in. It's gonna be two boxes, a 12-bottle shipper and a smaller box for the proper glassware.
  6. OK...I think this box is wrapped up! There are 5 wants, but many other 'Should be wants'. There are 5 states represented and 2 countries. I think it will go out Monday, unless something else falls in the box!

    Bottles are ready to go and box should go out Tuesday. I was able to pick up 5 wants. The box will travel roughly 2736 miles.

    Go Quakers!

    My target has yet to post in this thread, but my box will be going far west of me, and should be able to meet at least a few of his wants.

    My target has posted in this thread as many times as I have.
    My target has updated his wants within the last week.
    My target is going to get at least 6 of those wants.

    Hint- I am retty certain this is how my target sounds when he talks.;)
  16. Got a 12 bottle shipper sending out West most likely early next week after the holiday. Funky Wants weren’t the easiest but I was able to get 2 and some other funky delicious beers from great breweries…the party’s got 4 Belgians, 4 Vermonters, 3 Hoosiers and a Nantucketer.
  17. jp7161

    jp7161 Savant (335) California Dec 22, 2011

    Well the box is officially out. I took the rules to heart. If my target doesn't look like this after unpacking his box, I will be disappointed.

  18. Box landing tomorrow!!!!

    My target reminds me Homer Simpson (previous clue) from Japan

    My clues suck, sorry.
  19. Mr. Sparkle and I share a shockingly similar resemblance :)
  20. Haha....wow, that's crazy...

    This box has demolished me. Holy shit. Thank you Orange, CA resident (usofar?) for this killer box of goodies.

    usofar Initiate (0) California Dec 23, 2010

    Yes that's from me, I hope you enjoy them! Sorry about failure to include or note, and for leaving a price tag on. That was totally lame on my part. A smaller box with swag will ship after Thanksgiving.

    MSEGUIN Savant (445) Michigan Apr 6, 2011

    Hmm...The Japan hint makes me think I could be the target. But who knows I suck at deciphering hints. Well see when I get home today.

    Clue 2: Going to a BA I've never traded with before who has posted on Page 2 of this thread.

    12 bottle styro going out on Monday containing:

    232 ounces (rounded)
    6 wants and 1 "upgraded want" (hopefully my target will get this)
    beers from 7 different breweries / blenders
    Exclusively beers with brett / bacteria as my target doesn't appear to be the biggest saison fan.

    channels321 Savant (275) Texas Apr 16, 2012

    Box has been delivered to a neighborhood in Boston.
