    Jersey Boys, get ready, one of you is getting beered soon! My boxes look to be on their final truck departing Cranbury.

    Target, your shipment is on truck for delivery today, hope it lands intact.

    so far I've cracked 4 of the beers I received: JA Private Rye, JA Jabby brau, JA Hoponius Union and CB Spring training IPA. All were awesomely fresh and delicious. Enjoying the hell out of these MA beers and really looking forward to the BA framminghammer and the CB coffee porter. Thinking the coffee porter might be my after work caffeine dose today.

    My kids laughed at me last night when I jumped up like a dog that saw a squirrel when the UPS truck came down the street. Alas, it kept on going, and I continued eating my pasta.

    You are right about the weather and I kind of feel crappy because we had one of those Wisconsin 45 degree 1 day weather jumps. 85 on Wednesday and 40 yesterday and today.

    I'd prescribe 12 oz of Russian Imperial Stout. If symptoms persist, increase dosage to 22 oz. Repeat as necessary.

    Looks like my target will be enjoying himself this weekend. I also noticed he recently updated his "wants" (Hint #6...I think), but I had already packed up his box. My target may or may not possibly expect a little extra box sometime next week (possibly before or after the May 8th BIF deadline). Just saying.

    UPS said the combined weight is 38 pounds.
    This is what to look for.

    DANGIT! Not me then.

    I had earlier thought doing laundry this am would be a good activity, as it would involve me just hanging out at home all day in case beer comes but also accomplishing something. Except I live in an apartment, and the laundry room is in the basement, and now I am afraid to go transfer clothes to the dryer b/c with my luck, that would be the 5 minutes when the Fed Ex/UPS duder would show up. At least if my beer doesn't come today, I will have Ashley's cask ale festival tomorrow to hold me over. :)

    Well, since the beer is there, I will give my final hint. My target is in Troy, MI and as of 11:51 has beer! :D

    Beer has been delivered. Time to solve the mystery of the infamous clue:
    Blow off high ranking attorney, take daring whim: climb up Everest....or at least a third of it!

    This is a clue in the style of cryptic word puzzles. Mental re-punctuation is required

    Solution step #1: High ranking attorney = District Attorney = DA
    Solution step #2 Take daring whim: climb up Everest...or at least a third of it! = the clue is hidden in the phrase "daring whim: climb up Everest...or at least a third of it!

    Solution step #3: Blow off high ranking attorney. Since thiis has been solved as "DA", take "DA" off "daring whim..."

    This leaves daring whim: climb up Everest....or at least a third of it!

    Solution step #4: Or at least a third of it! Instead of being part of the answer, it's a clue: Only one third of the phrase daring whim: climb up Everest. In this case, every third letter in the phrase will be used.

    So, without further ado: Blow off high ranking attorney, take daRinG whIm: cLimB up EveResT....or at least a third of it!

    Flagged down the UPS guy and dropped box off with him. Headed to a state where a popular show about the antics of stoners takes place.

    Both of my boxes are enroute to the BIF owner :)

    To my sender whoever you are - my 30th Birthday is Sunday and I can't wait to get the box. This could be the best birthday present ever!

    Wow! That's an intense clue. Well done. I thought it had something to do with our governor Chris Christie.

    Some crazy boxes so far.

    Been a crazy week, so here's my long overdue next hint:

    Shipping to someone I've never shipped to a city that has atleast 2 teams currently playing in their respective sports.

    Thank god it arrived safely. UPS hasn't updated their tracking information and I started to get worried. Hopefully you like your box.

    Got home to two boxes waiting patiently for me on my porch. I've got a problematic beer boner right now so I'll post pictures when later!!! Pictures of the haul and not the beer boner.....well depends on how much I drink.

    You know I wasn't going to be able to wait until I got home to open it, right?
    I took a little peek, first thing I saw was Pliney---I like my box!
    Thank you, sir!
