    Thanks to all the participants! We have a great group of BAs ready to destroy some porches! Some of you I know personally, some indirectly, and some are newer BAs, eager to prove a point! I can't wait to see the hauls start rolling in!

    To recap:

    -NO ounce or NO bottle limits.
    -1 piece of swag.
    -Destroy, destroy, destroy!

    I urge everyone to:

    -UPDATE THEIR WANTS! (and gots)
    -List favorite and least favorite styles.
    -Pay attention to your targets gots/hads/reviews to avoid sending things that they have or have had.
    -Use www.seekabrew.come to get a good idea of your targets distribution.
    -Have fun and be active!

    If anyone else has any further suggestions or words of wisdom, feel free to post them!

    I have already chosen my victim and will be kicking this off no later than this coming Friday, unless swag retrieval takes longer.

    Fair and final warning: I will be attempting to set the bar high! Bring your A game folks!

    Cheers!

    Let's do this. I'm gonna send my target some wood as swag to repair where the shipment lands.

    I'm already strategizing how I'm going to obliterate someone's porch, I hope they have insurance on it. They're going to come home and it's going to look like a war zone, although on the positive side they'll find plenty of beer to console themselves under all the rubble.

    HINT #1: Just picked up a few things this morning for my target. They might think I'm from somewhere on the east coast with these items in toe, but I can assure you the box is coming from the deep south!

    PS: I'd also begin pumping iron, cuz you'll be needing the muscles!

    I don't have a porch but if someone can make the floor drop out of the lobby at my complex, you win.

    Something I should have put in the initial post: As much as I'd love to see this going quickly (and not just because I'm the last to receive ;)), not everyone will take a week to plan out their box, so this will take months to play out. So if you have any changes to ANY of your information as we go along, please tell me ASAP so I can notify the current list holder to make the necessary changes.

    In other news, I'm sitting at 378.1oz of beer for my target. Final oz total will be north of 400 I can assure you. Swag has been taken care of. Box...oh who am I kidding, boxES will be departing Friday...but if work allows me the time, I could ship them as soon as Wednesday. Someone might have to start rebuilding their porch this weekend...

    Went out to get tags to start marking cellar beers for my target. Also got few nice bottles I have been considering just in case he likes that kind of beer.;)

    I tried to explain to my wife how I'm now involved in a complicated trade that might take a year to complete. She just shook her head in disdain and walked away.

    Porches!!

    My convo went something like this:

    Me: While your away on business travel I found myself into this awesome trade that will take awhile to complete.

    Wife: How many bottles is it going to be this time?

    Me: Well the bar is set at 400 oz +

    Wife: Looks like you will need my FedEx account number again...

    Me: Thank you and btw I will be building a new porch this spring/summer after it gets demolished!

    I am so excited for this to get going. I have nothing clever to say yet, as I have not opened my first beer of the evening yet. And we all know wit and humor can always be found when drinking. :cool:

    It's probably best that my wife remains largely in the dark about my trading habits. ;)

    My husband said "You're talking like, $500 worth of beer!?" I said "yeah". He said "Then you better find some other cool shit to send too!"

    This is why I love him. :D

    Ooo! In "the dark you say"? Like in your cellar? GENIUS! I think I will start to keep mine in the cellar, too!

    You know...to keep her free from UV...and slow her oxidation...

    I told my wife about the 400+ounces of beer and she goes "That's like twenty bombers!!"

    To which I replied "Yes. Yes it is." ha

    So I might have underestimated porch fucking. 400oz+ makes my low expectations that much better. Spring cleaning has just turned into spring re construction on the foundation to my porch.
    Fed ex is gonna have multiple workers comp issues from lower back pulls and hernias.

    You can't fuck a porch with only 200-300 oz's...it will just keep echoing "Are you even in yet?!" ;)

    In light of my recent bad behavior of putting up some videos and home depot shopping events here is a description of what your porch will resemble.

    Since I am from Seattle I can best relate what your porch to the event that took place in 2000. When the Kingdome was imploded and all that was left was the remains of a stadium. I was 50 blocks away and could feel the rumble. That is what it will be like when the FedEx guy arrives.

    PS I love me some hood rat stuff

    Looks like I need to start pumping out the hints...it's looking more and more probably that I will get these boxes in the mail tomorrow...I might miss the last pick up, but it'll just be a shoe in to start it's journey on Wednesday. ​
    HINT 2: I will be shipping to a state that has the letter "I" in it's spelling.​

    Welp, looks like I'm out. Which is good, because I want a lot of time to put things together, and bad, because I want my porch to get some action. But be warned - my porch is concrete, so things are gonna get rough....

    Well that limits the list to about half of the states... :confused: But at least my state is on the list! (Come on, bomb my porch I hate that thing anyways!)

    Is there a swag limit of 1, or just a minimum? I am hoping for minimum :D.
