    Well, since Bing maps tells me that it's 924 miles from Bellingham to Niners Stadium, I'm gonna be bold and say that you don't consider that "close".

    I'm Out!

    Haha. I had to look online to see what games we’re playing but when I saw 49ers in Levi’s stadium I was suspicious. It’s only about an hour away. :beers:
    Looking forward to it.

    No problem with shipping early... the rules state must arrive by Nov 25th so Turkey day is a little more festive....

    Work has been a bitch this week plus I was without power for 5 days thanks to Zeta but I have a few days off starting Sunday...

    I have already made one trip for beer and will be making another before I ship next week.

    Shipping North (like that really narrows it down) and it's a good thing you like hops because I started shopping before I got my target...LOL

    I'll just say that there are hop farms in the state I'm sending these boxes into...and BTW my target might want to put some extra support under the porch.

    It's either OR (who has no participants in this BIF), ID (who grows a lot of hops, but are mostly owned by InBev, and has 1 participant) or WA, where we grow a LOT of fucking hops, and have 2 participants.

    One of the WA participants has said who her/his target is, but is yet to guess at his sender.....

    My box is head East maybe a bit south then North.
    Sent a box to this state, only few states I have not sent boxes too.
    It will travel past the Rockies!
    As this box travels past the Rockies it is going take a view of the mighty Mississippi!
