    I know at least two people shipped to their targets yesterday and a few others have contacted me and said that they plan to ship on Monday (including myself).

    Please post the hauls in this thread. Pics would be great!

    Guess no one has received any mystery shipments yet. I'll be interested to see what everyone gets eventually.

    Patience grasshoper! I know of at least 5 boxes that have shipped because they sent me their tracking number. It takes a few days going coast to coast for some of these.

    I believe people have until the 28th or so. I'm assuming you will see a lot of people receiving next week.

    So here is what I know...

    5 boxes have been received,
    2 boxes are in transit,
    1 box is being shipped tomorrow,
    7 boxes I have no clue?

    On the no clue boxes I just BM'd the senders reminding them of the due date and asked them to update me on when they plan on shipping. Some of the owed boxes are going coast to coast. Nothing like waiting until the last minute I guess! lol

    I will keep everyone updated!

    Cheers!
