    My target has been M.I.A. for a while... I hope he's ok. Maybe the box he receives tomorrow will remind him that he is a part of this BIF...and a member on BA.

    To my target:
    1) Your package was shipped Monday and left Orlando, FL 2:49 AM today. Scheduled to arrive Thursday 10/17/13.
    2) Your package was shipped COLD with ICE packs to ensure freshness.
    3) Hopefully you can enjoy cold right from the box, especially with your daily temps in the mid 50's.
    4) My target has not posted in this thread for awhile. Too busy with other BIF's maybe.. :)

    1. My target is west of me.
    2. I will be able to knock off 1 want from my home state and another they can't sell here because it's over 12 abv.
    3. The wants from 2 are the same style.
    4. My target has posted in here as well.
    5. My target has been on BA in the last hour.
    6. My package will travel in 5 states including mine and my targets. (assuming it goes in the most direct route on google maps)
    7. Movie shows some skin based on targets preferences.
    8. Looks like I missed fall in my targets state. The weather is already winter.
    Your package will be there tomorrow!

    Glad you liked the box. I was going through your list and finding so many wants that I had, and were available around here that I started to choose, then just sent them all, just call some of them extras.

    Can't say I can complain about that either ;)

    Just checked tracking. Target is still looking at getting some MI beers Friday. Not giving out any new hints because if you are my target and do your research, you should be able to figure it out. But here are all the hints again:

    Hint 1) My target lives in a different state than I do.
    Hint 2) My target lives south of me.
    Hint 3) My target has no Kuhnhenn's wants
    Hint 4) My target has posted in this forum, but not frequently (this hint no longer really applies: target has been posting more frequently lately)
    Hint 5) It would take me 33 hours to drive to my target. And 740 hours to walk.
    Hint 6) A famous athlete that once played for one of my pro-teams (Detroit), is from your city. This famous athlete's son currently plays for that same pro-team (and is pretty well-loved in MI).
    Hint 7) My target's city is in the same state as a whale's vagina.

    Sidenote: I have almost finished all the beers I received already & they were delicious. Saving one for Halloween, but otherwise I have never drank through a BIF so quickly before. Thanks, again, runner440!

    I was cleaning my office at home and ACK! One of the beers I meant to send to my target was found underneath a box. It's a pretty significant want so I'll send a second box tomorrow with a couple more extras to compensate. My target's not very active in this thread so I hope you're reading this anyway.

    My SO is participating with me in this BIF, as her first salvo into the world of trades. Box should be arriving Friday.

    Hint

    What day is it....c'mon what day it... It's BIF day! Woot Woot!!

    Got my BIF today. Lots of great beers from New England, all of which my wife and I have never had. Can't wait to try them during our next tasting this Sunday.

    Never seen this movie, my wife hates horror movies, but once I mentioned comedy-horror, she said, "I can watch that!"

    Wet Willie Scotch Ale! Going to try this next to Dunedin Brewery's 'The Bard'.

    My sender did an awesome job with his picks based on my lack of updated wants. He did his research and found us some great stuff. Thanks dude!

    To my target: Your package departed Keasbey, NJ at 8:30pm and still on track to arrive Thursday 10/17.

    P.S. Watch out for things crawling around inside. :eek:

    Wow so I'm terrible at remembering to come in here and post hints but better late than never.

    1) I will be shipping East (which is pretty much always the case, but whatever)
    2) The state I'm shipping to currently is a major part of some of the most irritating football commercials I have ever seen.

    Box is mostly done but I'm holding off because I'm taking a trip down to San Diego this weekend and I'm sure to find some goodies to add. Looks like it will go out right at the last day of the deadline.

    Disregard my post. Wrong Halloween thread and I can't figure out how to delete it.

    Now I scurry off to the correct thread...

    To my target (who has been lurking as of last night, but hasn't posted on BA since the 10th.), your package arrived at 9:18am today. Great weather there 63 degrees and a good day for golfing at the Centennial.
