444thBIF Hint No. 1. My target posts in multiple threads
444thBIF Hint No. 2. My target lives in a state where you need expressed permission to dispose of rubbish into a container not belonging to you.
444thBIF Hint No. 3 - My target lives in a state where the overload protection was first produced
444thBIF Hint No. 4 - When my target was 10, this movie came out. What we learned from this movie was sports almanac's are dangerous in the wrong hands.
444thBIF Hint No. 5 - My target has not posted in over a week
444thBIF Hint No. 6 - Targets box should be there right in time for his July 4th celebration
444thBIF Hint No. 7 - My target will get an extra special box if said target opts to post a pic of his haul....and I'm not talking about the beer
That means you did it right.
I was surprised at how good I felt yesterday, even managed a trip to Tired Hands (hint) and put in an appearance at a graduation party. Must have been the pizza we got on the way home (no memory of pizza or ride home), my wife said it was like dealing with a couple of giggling 5 year olds.
The wheels started coming off around 5:00 yesterday afternoon, I spent a while watching tv/napping on the couch.
after the beerfest, i went back to my inlaws for a bbq, had a couple more beers there, and then when i got home, thought it was a good idea to have the convenient distraction @Brewzma sent me, just some run of the mill 10% 750 (which is delicious by the way). probably not a good idea. woke up with a splitting headache at 4am, chugged a gatorade, popped a couple ibuprofens, took a shower, and went back to bed. felt much better when i woke up at 7, but still felt really fuzzy, and thats never a good thing when your the godfather at your nieces baptism.
Left work early on Friday and apparently missed a delivery from @Dicers.

Thanks a ton, Seth! Can't wait to give 'em a try, especially that Ever Weiss. Cheers!
We're heading to Sonoma for a wedding with my parents. My dad said he wanted to spend one of the days doing wine tours. I immediately pointed out that I had rented a car so that we could go to Russian River, which is about 45 minutes away, and happens to be in a decent wine area. He said he would add it to the list of stops after I told him many of their beers are wine inspired/wine barrel aged.
444thBIF Hint No. 7
I did not realize that my target's address is commercial (instead of residential), so his box of only 4 bottles of beer will now be landing tomorrow. Silly, FedEx.
Packing today to ship this afternoon. Who knew that only 4 bottles could way 32#?
Kidding, KIDDING!! Don't send spiders!!
My 444th BIF box is out for delivery and should land today.
So it went from Friday delivery to Tuesday delivery because it's commercial?
That seems backwards.
In the rush of posting my own hints, setting up a trade with @Houser, and seeing all the other thread stuff posted here, I literally have NO idea who my sender might be. And I'm ok with that. Because beer.
With my stellar record of guessing my sender, I'm thinking it is @anticipation23 . I know his box already landed with @Houser , but all clues point to me, so I'm sticking with that guess.
im actually done giving hints, and the 2-3 lackluster hints i gave would give my target zero inclination he has a box coming from me, but im done anyway. oh, im lazy and uncreative, too.
My box is packed and ready to ship. All Michigan goodies and personal favorites. my target lives in an area that can relate to the Washington redskins fiasco.
My box has been shipped and will arrive on Wednesday. I guess you can count me as one of those that broke the rules but let me explain. The two bottles I shipped are bombers so I felt wrong only including another can or 12oz bottle. Therefore, to ensure volume consistency throughout the box, I packed an additional 2 12oz cans and 2 16oz cans.
Plus, I actually like spiders so I'm not concerned with the repercussions.
I was going to send some 4th swag, but then I realized that everybody from around here just follows Pedro's advice and stocks up in my target's state so what would be the point?
A man who thinks out side the box! I love it. I was going to do that, but for fear of the spiders, I followed the "rules". Plus being newer to this thread, I didn't want to make anyone angry And if I recall, the rules never stated you couldn't send a follow up box if needed
i just dropped my box off as well. it will be arriving wednesday or thursday. there are a couple extra items in the box, including one item that has shown up in the thread before. the only requirement for said item is that it shows up in the thread again in the same manner in which it showed up the first time.
Box is off. Arriving Wednesday.
Did you send your girlfriend??
Edit: I hope it wasn't the underwear.
i will neither deny nor confirm that, but there was a post of mine that more than a handful of people liked.
Well I can barely walk from Sciatica pain, but I packed the box up and will drop it off on the way to the doctor. No way I would miss the deadline.
For every rule, there is a loophole.
Some midday p0rn that is not of this group, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Got not quite 3 hours left to get entries in. I have a current leader group, but haven't made my mind up yet. I got some serious laughs so far though. Cheers.
Some more mid-day porn. Infant whales!!
Damn dude! #gopickitupformebro?
I got SPAM fresh from Austin, MN I could hook you up with.
Dropping off a box in a few minutes.
Target: Since it is going to be in the mid 90's for the 2 day trip,
you'll have to let me know how my attempt at temperature control works.
There is a growler that should find refrigeration asap.
So I guess the bif in a box is coming to VA. That or someone went coaster and sticker crazy.
Received this today from New Jersey. I was guessing @ripps1 was my sender. Excellent stuff. So much SQUAD in this box.

So, as I am new to this group, I will do a nice little LIF with an offering of some TG goodness (at least 1 bottle of pseudoSue + another offering) to the winner as a first "initiation" for me.
Requirments: Start your own similar LIF and be outside of TG distro area (no Iowa or Wisconsin basically, unless you live a ways away from the stores/bars that get distro)
Challenge: What is my favorite soccer club? (non-MLS)
Liverpool (but I just got a box from you so if I win I will not accept it)

AC Milan. Welcome!
Haha you make me laugh.
Not too late to tell me a joke. 20 minutes left for chance at Wicked Weed LIF.
