    Okay, I think I've got 9 people on my list of possible senders (of those who've posted hints): flaran, grandmachine, hastur23, jonallan, kwaide, nesarebad, rusel_g, utisthelaw, and zekeman 17.

    Would be happy if it were any of them!

    Oops! Missed that one, thanks. Edit: I'm retarded, you just posted the haul moments ago. Good shit, might I add!

    You're lucky you don't have to agonize over who it is anymore!

    haha ya I didn't post his BA name just his real name. I know man I was totally not expecting it, and I was having a bad day with car problems so this really cheared me up! :D I can't wait to get my targets box sent out, but I have to wait till this saturday to get some goodies for him (think 3 floyds ;))

    3 of those are still on my list of possibles, too. You, however, are not on my list.
    Checking your wants, I could take care of 6 or 8 no problem yet I am struggling with my
    box. Draw you own conclusion from that.

    I have narrowed my possible sender down to two senders and I'm willing to give clues to my possible sender so they can guess if I know that they are my sender.

    Woohoo! Glad to know my very first box landed safely. Spent all day at work tracking it!

    Cheers, Founder26! Enjoy! :)

    (And yes, according to USPS, you'll have a little box of swag at your door tomorrow! I was praying that they'd land simultaneously, but 1 day off isn't too terrible, I hope!)

    hint #1. my target is EAST of me and freezes his ass off every winter.
    hint #2. if i drove 75 mph the whole way to hand deliver my box, i might make it in about 29 hours.
    hint #3. my targets wants are similar to mine and will be recieving a box comprised of mostly wants.
    hint #4. my target resides north of the 40th latitude.
    hint #5. my target seems to be what a bif is all about, he has posted more about what he is sending and hasnt really inquired about who is shipping to him. I plan on rewarding his thoughtfulness.

    Hint #6. my targets zip code adds up to 17, Box is packed trying to figure out when to lug this bitch into fedex office, either tomorrow if they are open of first thing monday am.

    Hint #1: My target has posted only once in this thread.
    Hint #2: My target has recently had Pliny the Elder.


    Hint #3: The sum of the digits of my target's zip code is 19.

    Alright, scrap this whole list. I think I just figured out that my sender is not even on it.


    General advice: shipping on a Monday is best because your box won't sit all weekend in a warehouse with no temp control.

    Hint # million. My target's profile has wants, gots and hads, but no full reviews.

    I'm having a really tough time conserving hints for my sender. I have a few good ones in mind but they will narrow things down quickly. Anyway, I liked lurpy's puzzle (even though I couldn't figure it out--something with anagrams?) and while I am less clever, I will attempt to throw out some clues for the beers going into my target's box.

    Clue #1:
    This beer shares its name with a Beatles song that would have made Dr. Timothy Leary proud.


    Edit: Anyone can play!

    Now I'm convinced that fremontbar is my sender. Could be wrong...

    This could still be me. No clue what you meant with your last "riddle" though, that one's throwing me.

    I have no clue who my sender is, but thats what makes this exciting. I will likely share these beers with my buddy's at the Bachelor weekend if it comes in time for the party. I don't want to give too much away but figured it was time for a good hint since I have all of the beer collected.

    217 oz total
    134.9 oz Wants
    82oz of because I want to and locals
    and there might be a few cans sneaking in for good measure I wouldn't want to wreck the porch half way.
    there will also be a local pint glass to drink some of your new beers.
    Will be shipping soon but as it might be going into an area that might get inspected I think it could be best to hold off a couple days.

    It would take 10.5 hours to drive this package to its new home.
    My target has a taste for the darker styles

    Same boat, my friend--could be me and I also am completely baffled by that last clue.

    Works for me. Just let me know if there is ever anything from my area (prairie, boulevard, etc.) that interests you.

    Yeah, it was way too hard. I love cryptic puzzles like in Harper's, but writing the clues is fargin' difficult. I also forgot I sometimes stare at the puzzles for 2 hrs and get nothing. I'll decrypt the clue after my target gets his haul, until then, maybe pretend it never happened.

    Just picked up a bottle of a rare NYS sour. Wish my target's profile mentioned something about sours (hint). Wouldn't want to waste a bottle if it's not going to be appreciated.

    My zip adds up to 17! And it does get freaking cold here. Not sure about hint #3. And 75mph x 29 hours = 2175 miles, and I believe it is a bit more than that from CA to VT. Loving the hints though!

    World's most disorganized brewery, so depends on whatever brew they find laying around. Maybe you'll be lucky and they'll find some KRE and french toast mead that had gotten put in the janitor's closet by mistake.
