    First hint: This is the first BIF since August 2011 where I don't have any link to Ungertaker (or so I think).

    Just a reminder, as I need to do it myself. Update your wants and profile (always like it when people include favorite styles) and anything else helpful.

    My target would be a good person to go camping with, they will find a box full of wants. One of which is Heady Topper. I have some shopping to do, may even contact a printer friend for some swag.

    Hint #1
    It has been rumored that my target has a heartbeat and could quite possibly be human. They live to the East of me, and that's a fact.

    I already picked up a T-shirt for my target, it isn't available for purchase. You have to know someone to get one.

    I have proof that Frigyes Karinthy's "Six Degrees of Separation" concept is not a fallacy, because in fact I can be connected to my target in exactly six steps.

    Hint #1:

    leschkie --> MarkIntihar --> ________ --> ________ --> ________ --> ________ --> ________

    More to follow...

    Wow Sender, thanks for making us look back already- "you have to know someone", dang. Hmm, my target lives west of me & will most definitely dig what I'm planning to send. In fact, his whole region would be psyched to get some of this.

    I'm just trying to make everybody else look bad, and hoping my target likes their box.

    I don't think I've shared a beer with anyone on this thread. I'll wait for the pics to post & decide who doesn't look likes serial killer in waiting.

    I am in a BIF with my target as of right now. I may be an addict, this is now the 4th BIF I am currently in. This is heading east.

    Sours is wrapped up so you should be down to a measly 3.

    I don't know anyone in this BIF, though I think geography may be to blame for that. My target lives in a sunny state & also likes Heady Topper- so get ready to receive sone of Vt's finest!

    I think introductions 3,4 and 5 took place in about 15 minutes. 4 and 5 I think he literally turned around introduced himself to someone else then to me again. Hey at least I remembered his name unlike 80% of everyone else I met.

    my target may be getting a box on the early side. Depends on how Odell Small Batch Fest goes (this Sat) and if they do growler fills of any favorites that are still around next week.

    These hints threads are like foreplay for beer geeks. Especially since some people aren't shipping for a month.

    My target lives west of me & in a state thought of as being one of the best beer states.

    My target is the lone person to represent their state in this BIF.

    Hint #2
    If I were to test drive a Chevy Volt (in electricity mode only) from my door to my target's door, it would cost me a grand total of $115.25 to deliver this box. Total does not include trip incidentals such as twinkies, hohos, and twizzlers.
