    this is still going strong. I got an update from my first target (Phineasgage) and the second box is due to land on Saturday or Monday I believe. I will let him post his hints when he figures that this is back up and running. I did hear that there is a 70 lber on its way to a front porch as we speak.

    jeez...by the end of this BIF someone's probably going to get a forklift and a pallet showing up at their door!

    I don't remember what hints I gave before. And small disclaimer, box one is in the 60lbs range.

    My favorite brewery is founders, I got a hint that founders is pretty high on your likes too.
    My second favorite bruery is in your state.

    Hopefully, if all goes well, the boxes should land at same time.
    Also, the rest of my swag is on back order in my warehouse right now...box two explains the swag.

    Really hoping that spelling is part of the hint...

    There was a point in time where I considered using a spare wooden crate from work to do a BIF, just for the hilarity, but it seemed too stupidly expensive.

    i'm not afraid of a pallet of beer. So I can give a hint, if you have received a box from me, been in a bif that I have hosted, or have slept on my couch, you might be getting a box or two on Saturday.

    If you've never interacted with me before, never traded with me, or even been in the same bif before this...you're getting a box.
    We have a couple common trading partners.

    This is a traditional bif, senders choose their target after they get their box

    so after 33 hours in the hosptial, finally back at home. The surgery took longer than expected, and it took awhile to get the pain under control and enough oxygen in my blood. Bloody hell, the good news, back at home and resting. Sorry to see the delay, was hoping to get on and see the haul, but will have to wait until Tuesday for the destruction to continue. I appreciate the ones who answered the target questions, this is a traditional BIF where who ever receives gets to pick his/her next target. So hope every one is well, and have one for me.

    To my target: I keep wondering if you are, coincidentally, a fan of camping.

    Tomorrow box #1
    Thursday box #2
    (if FedEx isn't full of shit again.)

    You will total out to over 75lbs between the two boxes!

    If I were to hand deliver the box that will land today, I would've drove almost 2100 miles over the course of roughly 32 hours through 8 states. Enjoy all the year round, seasonal, and one offs!!! Also wear that swag proudly!!

    I'm not in this. But as I was with the box biglobo sent, I am anxious to see what 75 pounds of goodies is being delivered over the next couple of days.

    Google Maps has me as 2100 miles, 33 hours, but only 7 states. I'm guessing your target is in Oregon/Washington. Oh well!

    whoever does get the box, bm me, there needs to be a deletion in one of the participants. Life happened and I appreciate the person bowing out instead of dragging it out, or screwing someone over on beer.

    Haha, won't be that good, I'm not really expecting anything. It's impossible to know what to expect from this BIF.

    Well, I know who's getting it. Incidentally, I also know that the fancy new package notification service my apt complex announced this weekend isn't working.

    Sadly I have plans tonight, I'm just going to run home, grab the box, then catch a train. But I'll unbox it when I get home.
