    Alright guy;s, it's not fair of me to step on Ken Mountain's already running thread on the mystery box he started last year.So, I'm creating a new one here.
    A few have already signed on for the next one. I'll make the list here for all to keep up with. This box will start here in Florida and will travel around the country more or less clockwise. I'm still a few weeks away from starting, so there is time to get in on it. So if you'd like to be a part of the next box, just PM me your name and address and I'll put you on the list.

    5,Rolloman
    6,Jackdragbean
    7,Jeepster61605
    8,Silverring
    9, Dbrian66
    10, Acidhouse

    Thats what we have so far, And there's still a few weeks to get in , so let me know

    people throw stuff inside a box and ship it to each other so they can take somebody else's stuff, but the box never comes to me :(

    Cause you didn't post a picture of yourself - we don't even know if you are "real" - post your report card also !

    If your grades suck we're kicking you off the forum ! So you can get a education to fall back on in case you don't make the Concert circuit !

    No problem ,

    “The Mystery Box tradition started long ago. Our ST ancestors would , from time to time, organize a “Mystery Box”. Typically , one member would let it be known, that they are assembling a “Mystery Box” of parts , small gear, pedals, ect,ect.

    The “Mystery Box” owner, if you will, would then go to the post office and attain a flat rate shipping box. He would then place things in his box that were in good shape , or even new or like new condition.

    He would then let the others know . They would then contact him through a PM, and give their name and mailing address to him. Once he had 18-20 participants, he would then plot the boxes course of travel, what we know today as shipping, and then send the box to the first member on his list. Onc that member had it in his or her possesion, they would then remove the contents and check it out. They would then decide if they wanted to keep anything from within the box.

    Heres the cool part, they would then replace what they took with their own stuff of equal or greater value than that which they took! This was expected of everyone! Of course, they may also choose to keep nothing, but would still have to ship the box to the next person on the list and provide them with a tracking number! This is the cost of taking part in this tradition.

    And because the box would from time to time become worn, the current holder would then go to the post office and get a new box. And they are still free even today.

    Once the member is ready, he then would contact the box owner for the next address a name . Once the box was in the mail again, that member is expected to post pics of what they kept only, and is not allowed to disclose any information about the boxes contents , thats how it is kept as a “Mystery Box”.

    So , I hope that helps you and others to understand the ways of this ancient and much loved tradition. PM me if you need further assistance, or itf youd like to be a part of the”New Mystery Box 2018”

    What's shipping like across Europe? Maybe our cross the Atlantic brethren can start a Euro Mystery Box.

    I think I'm gonna set this one out. I've been involved in every box since it started so I'll let someone else have some fun.

    Do Brits count or are they excommunicated because of Brexit. If not, this dude definitely wants in.
