    Hint - my target lives in a state where it is illegal to have more than 16 women living together in a house.

    That should be illegal in every state.

    Just to clarify, Rule 4 and Rule 3 can be satisfied by 1 bottle. For example:

    If someone wanted to send me that I'd be cool with it.

    I'm shipping to a place that is over 500 miles away from me. And an initial perusing of my targets wants says I should be able to hit quite a few of them. Looking forward to this one!

    Looks like I'll fo sho hit two on my targets wants, and maybe another one or two.

    Hint: If I was to strut all the all the way over to my targets porch and hand deliver some devastation, resting for 8 hours a day, it would take me more than a month.

    Hint #1 My target lives in a state with at least one professional sports team.

    I will also be using this BIF as an excuse to go on a beer trip.

    Let the games begin!
    I have at least 3 of my targets wants in the beer fridge right now--too bad none are stouts.
    Target is west of me in a state that I've never visited.

    I hope Haywire can handle the pressure.
    He set the bar pretty high last time.

    My box will land in a coastal state. Already have 5-6 bottles in my fridge that aren't distributed to my target's area, including 2 small-format wants. A brewery from the capitol of my state makes a delicious chile-stout that I'm hoping to send a growler of if I can find it locally.

    Not necessarily... I'm going back to 1883, and of coarse not limited to the four major sports (football, baseball, basketball, and hockey).

    Okay, so to live up to my infamous hints, I've spent the last hour coming up with a riddle of sorts. I'm actually not even going to give hints that lead up to the actual destination. If you figure out this riddle, you will know exactly where my target lives.

    Before you read this, know that I suck at poetry so don't judge me. And, it is a bit dark at the end but only because as I was writing it, it seemed like a senseless poem so I tried turning it into an actual story of sorts.

    Let me start of with a hint for the riddle. There are 20 stanzas (if you count the last line as a stanza). Of the 20, less than half of them provide hints. The other half are to throw you off. The ones that do mean something, it's up to you to determine what they mean or represent. Good luck ;)


    I'll provide other hints in the coming days that will provide clues as to destination or target. However, solving this one will determine target or destination right off the bat.

    Have fun!

    My target is from a state with at least one professional sports teams I wouldn't be ashamed to root for.

    I fully plan to take Haywire's riddle to work and make the entire staff try and crack it. Is this considered cheating?

    Go for it! This might be my best one to date. On Monday, I'll give a regular hint plus a hint towards unlocking the riddle.

    After doing some organizing of my sell and picking up a few things in town I feel it is time for another hint. My box will be headed over 500 miles to reach its destination.

    I just got an e-mail from my favorite bar/bottle shop. They just got in a couple of stouts that I think my target would be very happy to receive.
    They are having a PtY event tomorrow, but maybe I'll brave the crowds and pick up some gems.

    Hint #4: My target has less "hads", "wants", and "gots" than me.
