    I think no matter where you are on the list - the potential of getting a box from a bad Hombre exists - even geographically ? no regrets fella's !

    Box is off to it's next stop. Want to know what was added or want it to be a surprise?

    Maybe we could mention what was taken out, but not what is put in. That would give the thread more action at least, otherwise dullzville.

    Yes. I'd love some pics of the goodies everyone's getting. Would be cool to see some of the things I donated being put to good use.

    Hey can I use a bigger box or do I have to use a USPS Medium Flat Rate box?

    Not a bigger flat rate box (I don't have any around), just a slightly larger box shipped Priority Mail (in my case $1.5o more for the box I was going to use than a medium flat rate box would have cost)

    Looking back i think a large flat rate is what was used on the last one which is around $18? Feel free to use a different box. Whatever you're comfortable with as far as shipping costs go.

    That being said, I wouldn't want the shipping costs to be a burden on anyone down the line if it winds up getting too big. So keep that in mind.

    Just be aware that some people may not want to start shelling out $20+ bucks to ship the box.

    **edit**

    I'm pretty sure we used the medium box ($13.60) the entire route but I could be mistaken.
