    Here it is, the 4th and 5th pass around box to go around Australia! This time the box will go in a anti-clockwise direction, going to NT, WA, SA, Tas, Vic, ACT, NSW and finally landing back in QLD. The boxes will be staggered like last time, I'll post the second box out once the first one gets halfway. I'm planning on posting out the first box no later than January the 20th, or earlier if everyone has responded.

    So if you want in all you have to do is say "I'm in" along with your state and postal code, if your not comfortable with posting that you can private message me.

    Now for some legal info (taken from last round)

    Rules:
    1. Trade up or equal, don't take a $50 knife and throw in a lighter. Feel free to add smaller and lighter items to reduce the size of the finished box.If you don't have large funds feel free to take and add a smaller item.
    2. post photos of what you take out (not what you put in lets keep some surprises).
    3. once you have it get it back out in a week.
    4. Bear in mind some things can't be posted, if in doubt call Australia Post and check rather than having the box confiscated.
    5. New or used in good condition items.
    6. Based on other countries boxes, which I'll follow, There will need to be 3 photos taken:
    A. When you open the box and dump everything out, showing what was in the box when you received it;
    B. What you have taken out;
    C. The contents of the box before you post it on, including what you have added to whats left.
    7. Photo A and C are to me PMed to me, photo B is posted here.:)

    Contact the next person in front of you for their address, once all of the names have been collected I'll be making a list in post #3 of this, i'll keep this updated with who has the box and who has shipped it.

    Things to consider (taken from other pass around boxes and edited to be more relevant to us):

    if there's two or three paracord things.. Don't put in more, find something different .. Be kind to your fellow brethren further down the list. This only works if you follow the spirit of this passaround. If an item could be easily broken, take the time to wrap it a bit.

    A good rule of thumb is to put in something you think is MORE valuable than what you take out. Valuable doesn't necessarily mean higher dollar item, but high utility and something most other people would want.

    Try to keep the boxes the same size as when it posts out, otherwise it will be costing people an arm and a leg to post it. When posting it out add tracking and don't forget to keep the receipt until you can confirm it has reached its destination
