    Hint #1: In a shocking development, my target lives both South, and, East of me. (there, takes 2 off the board right away)

    I'm stoked! First, Tennessee gets the internet (I think Al Gore invented it) and now I'm in BIF!!

    Hint: I'll be shipping some freshies and some not-so-freshies sometime this month. Specifically during work hours.

    So let the clues begin!
    I'm shipping beer.
    I'm shipping west!
    These will be the easiest clues I give!

    The real first hint:

    Once a lifetime ago I spent two months of my life
    In sand dunes, pine trees, and deuce and a halfs
    Wishing I was back home with anybody’s wife

    Taking cold showers instead of hot, or baths,
    Drinking 3.2 beer and going into town on Saturday
    But the local daughters were locked behind lathe

    And hidden from the Yankees, not to learn the ways
    Of carpetbaggers or freed slaves or future followers
    Of the life works shared among BAs.

    STOP, STOP, STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There has been some confusion behind the scenes here at BIFWorld HQ, and we're going to send out new pairings. So, everyone chill with the hints for a bit. I'm going to start sending the updates now, but may not get them all done today. Everybody kickback, have a beer, and I'll get to ya as soon as I can.

    Sorry guys for the confusion; I neglected to consider a couple regular trading partnerships, and what fun is it to be BIF'd by someone you already trade with?

    To this point, if your target is someone with whom you already swap boxes with, please let @beertunes and I know. For that matter, tell me if there's anyone participating that you trade with regularly, I'll make a note for future rounds (which I'll then forget to look at).

    Barring any further hiccups, final pairings will be out shortly and we can get to it.

    Should I assume that since I have never traded with my target I am good to go or wait?

    OK. All the adjustments have been made. Check your inbox for a message titled "New Target". If you got that message, the enclosed name is, indeed, your new target. If you did not receive a "New Target" message, your original target is still your target guys. Mad Apologies for the mix-up.

    YOU MAY NOW RESUME ALL BIFFING ACTIVITIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @beertunes addressed it, but to answer the question: No, a handful of people got new targets whether they had a regular trading partner issue or not, to make sure all the pairings still worked right.

    GLOBAL HINT: What this means is that no one is shipping to someone they've had as their target in a previous NBS BIF round, and no one is shipping to someone in a state bordering their own.

    Which is an indirect way of answering the question posted by @Josholson666 back upthread.

    No, I think your response was an indirect way of answering, mine was a direct way of answering LOL

    Really though I hadn't even seen the question, or your intentionally vague response, so my bad ruining that one
