    Currently MexicanSkittel has informed me that he will be shipping out his box on Monday. I think he will follow through!

    I have tried beermailing ggwheeler, texting and calling his cell but I've gotten no response. It is a valid number.

    I have already informed Damian74Shensky that I will take care of him if ggwheeler does not follow through.

    I appreciate it marine, but $40 of beer/swag is up to ggwheeler.

    I will try to see if I can motivate him. Otherwise I'll have to list him.

    Almanac glass (very nice glass)
    AleSmith Speedway Stout (Big time want)
    Uncommon Brewers - Baltic Porter (love good porters)
    Cismontane - Black's Dawn (Imperial Stout + Coffee...yum!)

    Update:
    Currently MexicanSkittel has forwarded me a valid UPS tracking # and I think CarolinaKevin will have his box by Monday.

    I have tried beermailing ggwheeler, texting and calling his cell but I've gotten no response. It is a valid number.

    I have already informed Damian74Shensky that I will take care of him if ggwheeler does not follow through.

    It looks like ggwheeler is destined for tha list!

    By my math, that works out about correct. 97% of the people in this world are fine folk and abide by the rules of decent society. The other 3% are douchebags.

    ggwheeler is headed to Firestone Walker Invitational 2 http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/firestone-invitational-the-2nd.65885/#post-912060

    He is also busy fucking Brads porch. http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/exception-lif-aka-brad-gets-beer.64175/page-10#post-926852

    Maybe he is too tired to send any more beer.

    I will also be glad to fuck up Damian74Shensky's porch, Nothing worse than a guy who would be more than happy to receive beer, but when it comes to paying up, is nowhere to be found....

    Let me just say Thank you to Johnny B. My wife called me at work and told me there's a box from Florida. Didn't order anything on ebay this week? Hmmmm....Get home and see it's a Cigar City Hunahpu's Imperial Stout. Thank you so much, if it weren't for this kind gesture I would of more than likely never had this beer! Thank you so much for your kindness.

    Not at all Damian, sorry you had such a poor experience in your first BIF. I hope it doesn't discourage you from participating in future ones as most BA's on this site are rock solid people. You handled a lousy experience with dignity and class.
