    My target's box is set to arrive this Saturday. If I ship to New York on Mondays, that's typically when it lands. Keep an eye out for that Fedex guy.

    Hint #2: My target has recently added a want that I would definitely not want based on an ingredient I generally dislike in beer. Luckily, I can hit like 10 other wants... :wink:

    Hint #3: On first glance at my target's "wants" I can hit 5 or 6 sour wants from the cellar along with maybe two more non-sour wants. I will likely hold off on shipping out the box until the end of the month when I can pick up a freshly canned non-sour want available to my northeast

    Sorry guys, I have been kind of absent from BA over the past week and a half. I got nailed with a sinus infection that transitioned into a head cold...on top of it, my cell phone crapped out on friday and won't have a replacement until wednesday, my paypal account got hacked and they drained my account (and bank account) and tonight my dishwasher broke (and its less than a year old)....so Im batting 1.000 this week.

    GABF in one month :slight_smile:

    Hint: My target knows who they are...and I am going to drop a bomb on them (as soon as I get my financial situation un-fuck-ulated).

    My target has been very quiet, and hopefully can update their Wants just a bit. Otherwise, the box will have zero Wants but full of sours. I guess that's a good thing, though.

    OK missed my ship by date due to unforeseen outoftownedness but 195 ounces of tasty will be headed out tomorrow.

    It will be going deep into the heart of the American South, to a place that was actually cooler than Portland today.

    Man, work is the worst, I actually have been unable to keep up with the important things in life, like this BIF.

    I will be shipping East to a state I seem to be shipping to with some regularity lately.
