    Target has been selected, Biglobo has been notified. Went shopping today. Box #1 will either go out tomorrow or Monday

    ****UPDATE*****
    BOx #1 with some beer and Schagggg willl be shipped tomorrow. Got the beer and glasses and some local food stuff ready, picking up two shirts after morning hockey and will drop the box off on the way to work. Box #2 will probably ship early next week. HInt: box is heading someplace probably slightly colder than me but with less snow than me.

    Wow... this one is still going????
  15. I like how people who aren't in this BIF chime in more than the people that are actually in it. I think we are down to 5 people, hopefully the next person will get theirs soon so we can wrap this biyatch up before my palate changes. Again. That or I have my 3rd back surgery.

    To whomever sends to Lobo: Make the haul so big that lifting it will force another back surgery. Upside is that he'll have plenty of beers to enjoy during recuperation...

    shrek806 Savant (275) New York Mar 1, 2010

    Box #1 is on its way to middle of America. It's got 12 bottles of beer, a couple of local faves, a glass, and a couple of t-shirts. Box #2 will go out sometime next week with some more local schwag, another glass, and of course, lots more beer
  18. hopefully when I get my box I will still like beer. I bet I will, crossing my fingers.
  19. shrek806

    shrek806 Savant (275) New York Mar 1, 2010

    Box #1 scheduled to land Tuesday in a state that had a hockey team that used to shine bright in the sky but now they are just savages
  20. shrek806

    shrek806 Savant (275) New York Mar 1, 2010

    Box #1 is in the targets state, will be delivered Tuesday. Box #2 will ship either end of this week or beginning of next, depending on work schedule

    shrek806 Savant (275) New York Mar 1, 2010

    Glad you like box #1, # 2 will have plenty more local flavor (beer and food) and maybe something sour from one or two of these breweries. That firefighter shirt is our best seller. The bikers love it. I am a Syracuse firefighter (this is me) the dinosaur BBQ sauces come from an awesome restaurant in Syracuse (been on man vs food) got some more good local food planned for the next box too

    iadler Savant (415) Illinois Aug 12, 2009

    Awesome! Looking forward to the next box as well! I'm a big foodie, so I'm always interested in trying great local snacks/sauces etc.
  27. Great box! Cascazilla is seriously one of the most underrated beers on the market. Very nice way to get this back on track.
  28. how can someone who weighs 100 lbs soaking wet consider himself a foodie? Nice first box Shrekie.

    iadler Savant (415) Illinois Aug 12, 2009

    Hey! I'm 160 lbs. Can't blame my awesome metabolism.
  32. iadler

    iadler Savant (415) Illinois Aug 12, 2009

    Also, Brandon or Shrek, shoot me over the list...unless it's in the box? I gotta start doing some research on my potential target. I hope their porch is in good condition.
  33. the master list is on my work computer, unless Shrek can supply. Will have to wait until tomorrow.
  34. iadler

    iadler Savant (415) Illinois Aug 12, 2009

    Just an FYI, I'll be out of the country from tomorrow until March 30th. I'm sure I'll have some bottles in the cellar for my target once I receive the list, so I should be able to send out the first box fairly quickly!
  35. I will forward it to you Sunday from work. Enjoy your vaca.
  36. shrek806

    shrek806 Savant (275) New York Mar 1, 2010

    well that means I wont ship box #2 til late march so you return to a second larger fresh box
  37. iadler

    iadler Savant (415) Illinois Aug 12, 2009

    It's up to you Shrek! I'll have someone who can certainly bring in the box, but if you're more comfortable holding off, no worries! :)
  38. going anywhere fun?
