    Package shipped off! I really feel I nailed my targets wants and hope he/she enjoys the box.

    Final hint: My target has at least three vowels in their last name as well as their city the box is getting shipped to.

    I've updated my glassware list, a link is in my profile to a spreadsheet. Finally went through the hassle of taking pictures of everything individually.

    I have 7 of my target's wants, so now I have some choices to make. I'll be slowly gathering swag and shipping closer to the end of the window.

    So it seems like I may have worded the rules part a bit confusing for some people, and I know this is my fault. If you have any questions regarding what qualifies as the one piece of required swag, and what is considered as extra swag, please contact me before your box goes out to your target.

    Swag acquired. Extras acquired. Glasses done! Hopefully going west tomorrow to a town over 500 feet above sea level! I am very proud of this box.... Hope my target enjoys it as much as I would!

    Dear Target,
    I hit 3 of your wants or will hit 3 when a few glasses finally land here.
    I also picked up 2 other glasses that are not on your gots or wants list but should be.
    1 of the extra glasses is beer related, so that will make a total of 6 glasses for your box.
    Now time to grab some swag and beer for your box.

    Absolutely the best box ever. I can't thank you enough! I'm going to have to up the quotient on my box to keep this going.

    Cheers and thanks to hannydawg for the logistics leadership!

    That's a bad ass box from Steebo.


    Still gathering swag and hoping to ship by the end of next week to someone residing in a state that is home to one of my most hated college football teams.

    ^ Nice stuff. The Greenbush glasses are nice.

    In an hour or so, I'll be stopping by a local place to get the final item for my box: a piece of swaggage. Otherwise, my target will be getting some good glass, including 3 wants, 2 local items, and 2 items not from the US (not a miscount; it's a Venn diagram). Also some sweet extras including perhaps bottled liquids of some kind. I should be shipping out next week.

    Managed to leave my piece of swag up north at my girlfriend's place, She'll be bringing it down to me on Friday, which means I can send out next monday.

    I also managed to get a glass that my target really wants thanks to some locals.
