So I have it narrowed down to Cuzco,gcamparone or JoeDurp as my sender...Hints!?!?
How far west are you sending?
Not me man...sorry guys shits been intense but box is out Monday my boss said I can use the company FedEx account
I just got home to this 49lb monster of a box!!! I'm assuming it's from Threefishes from the hints and my previous guess. The opening and pics will have to wait until my fantasy draft is over, but the excitement and anticipation mayake me take a sneak peak! I'll post the pics once I open!!

All in all, this took forever to unpack and the gifts kept coming. I was really blown away by it all. This was my first BIF and it won't certainly be my last!!! Thanks Threefishes for the generous box, and I can't even begin to thank you for the 420! I only get it when I visit Bama during the year for football games, and it will definitely put the cap on a great summer. Thanks again!

Glad to see it made it safe. Tried to throw in some of my go-to local stuff considering you and I both are IPA fans. I'm hoping you'll like the Deep Ellum and the Hop Delusion! P.S.S. - Roll Tide!! Sorry I just had to! Cheers!
2 boxes are on their way somewhere...
ufmj...I will send tracking numbers over to you shortly. i forgot to write them down before I dropped the boxes off and need to wait for them to load in my account later today.
My targets package is at his house now
Hope this is me... *Fingers Crossed*
Might just be wishful thinking though
Well...no beer on my porch...
Know the feeling
well at least you knew your own beer was not landing on your porch...
Did you accidentally ship it to your own house?
box should land in a southern direction from me on Thursday.
Box landed. A few fallen soldiers. I will post a picture of the survivors in just a bit. Sadly I have been feeling like ass since yesterday. Wish it was hangover from the bottle share Sunday but don't think that's the issue. But looks to be that a black butte XX?, and some praire bit the dust. Found part of the label and 2 corks.
Wow are you fucking serious
Too much Mike's Hard Strawberry Lemonade, perhaps?
Yeah, they delivered the box in a bag. With bottles busting out.
How many are left
Here is the haul, amazing box of beers from JoeDurp. Fedex cant read when someone says this side up cause that side was down when the box landed. Its kinda strange how packing nuts interact with beer. it makes like little buggers. freaked my wife out, but I thought it was funny as hell...
JK Funk Metal (love it)
JK el Cedro (have not had it)
JK Black Metal (only tried the OG)
JK Censored (cant wait to try it)
BLVD Terra Incognitta (had last years and loved it)
Saint Arnold- Pumpkinator (love pumpkin beers soooo now a new one to try)
Alaskin- Smoked Porter ( not ready for smoke beers but in about a month this will kill it with some BBQ)
Real Ale- 4 Squared
Real Ale- black Quad
Homebrew ESB ( perma want)
super pumped about the brews. I am in Jester King heaven right now.
as for the fallen few, I did find a black wax top and part of the label for a Black Butte something but the rest of the label was in different pieces. and 2 different cage and cork tops that looked to say Prairie, something with a green label from the rubble. what ever the bottles were the cocktail of smells was great.
It was last years black butte plus prairie hop and prairie funky galaxy of the two prairie only 1 was amazing the other I had after I sent the box and it was weird. Was there anything differently I could have done with the packing or was FedEx just stupid?
I think bubble wrap around every bottle helps. And packing the box tight with paper, bubble wrap, peanuts whatever to make it so there is no room for anything to move no matter what direction the box may go in. Or you can go the UFMJ route and do box in a box. Box with beers wrapped in bubbles and filled with peanuts to the top making sure there is some between bottles too. And then put that box in a larger box with peanuts around it. MJ sends the best packed boxes I have ever seen.
Sorry man will learn for the next time
It's all good brother. Depending on who sends to you you'll see what others do. I switch up my methods depending on what boxes I have in hand or my beer store has to give me. ( someone donates shippers to them and I get them). But if you ever need a hand or have question in the future let me know. I'm always down to help.
My target's box landed today. 45+ lbs. Don't strain your back.
I don't think this is me... I think my boxes will be arriving tomorrow, or maybe Thursdy. Not sure what the shipping time is from Il to Va. Yeah, I'm fishing for some kind of confirmation
It's not you.
Shipping time is so relative. FedEx missed their delivery date from MO-NY by 2 business days. Had hoped my package would have landed Friday of last week.
My boxes (40lbs. of LOVE) will be landing tomorrow.
I just finished up packaging a second box for my target and I am getting pretty damn thirsty as well!
Hint 1: My target has not posted in this Hints & hauls thread yet
Hint 2: I will be shipping East
Hint 3: My target has less posts, likes, wants, hads, and gots than me but has been on this site longer.
Hint 4: I have been in (previously or currently) a BIF with my target.
Hint 5: I was the post before or the post after one of your posts at least once.
Hint 6: (need to keep pace with ufmj) My target has completed less trades than me but has been in more BIFs than I have been in.
Hint 7: I am shipping to a state that I have never been to and never shipped to before.
Hint 8: My target does not have a beer themed avatar
Hint 9: my target does not have numbers in his screen name
Hint 10: A musician sharing your first name founded and was also the lead singer of this severely inappropriately named band.
Hint 11: Including this post, my target has posted on here 25 LESS times than I have.
Hint 12: My state is larger than yours; however, it is not more that 2 times the size of yours.
Hint 13: I am NOT shipping to ufmj
Hint 14: I am NOT shipping to Kwaide
I'm gonna guess IPA Fans target is Seth. I am also going to guess that a Blackhawks fan will be getting a box on Thursday.
I just rented a house in my target's state for next summer! They should have their boxes by Thursday!
I would concur. Or at least I hope I'm his target, otherwise I'm really really bad at guessing in BIFs.
Well Cuzco if your getting a house in VA hit me up and I will host a bottle share in your honor.
Well I will be landing in VA in order to drive a couple hours to my destination.... People used to drive from VA down the coast line to get to the area I am staying in! If you take this route I would suggest watching out for horses....
Sounds like the OBX!

I don't live far from OBX so I could bring some bottles down since I still go there for vacation anyways. Must hit up chips and trio's. and drink lots of beer at fish heads. In fact I am going to fish heads again in a couple weeks for a huge party since its only about an hour and a half away.
