    Good to hear; one of my friends checked in there on Facebook a few weeks ago and I asked him to grab me one. I need to pick it up from him one of these days!

    Hoping the box and the recipient for a box that landed Wednesday are ok, haven't heard from them in a while

    My package has been shipped today. It's heading east and I actually planned on including a certain style of glass my target mentioned wanting in the past week or so...

    Box hit the road today! It will be on a roughly 2000 mile trek east. Headed to a city famous for a fermented liquid condiment.*

    Glad you enjoyed it, the Teku was one of the first glasses I had planned on including in your package and it was cool that you had mentioned in another thread you that you wanted a glass of that style. I drove across the state on my way up to Traverse City to visit my girlfriend's family and hit up JP in Ann Arbor, Bells in Kalamazoo, Vivant in Grand Rapids, and 7 Monks in Traverse City.

    Believe we are still looking for 5 hauls, with 4 boxes needing to land. I don't think vanilla101's recipient ever posted. I do know we are on track to see a haul tomorrow!

    I did receive confirmation that slvrmon85 did receive box. So it did successfully make it to destination.

    Yeah, I know this isn't a contest, but I think Corbet won. hah jk
    All good though. Now that I'm seeing everything, I'll know to knock it up a notch on the next round.

    When we do the next one, can original members get first right of refusal if they want to join again?

    There's probably room for 2 groups...no need for anyone to be excluded.

    Since I am watching this thread and threads tend to get pushed down the list quickly with how much we all post.... can someone post in here when the next one is starting to get set up? Don't want to miss out!!
