    Why CANADA only? Sorry for our fellow EDCF'ers overseas and to the south of us, but shipping time for such would be long and I don't like customs snooping around our goodies. :mad: Also, with the rising costs of shipping and customs charges as well I would also like to think that the person will be able to take out of the box the equivalent of what they would be paying for shipping AND customs fees but that is not reality. So ..............................

    This is the plan so far:
    • Show your interest here in this thread.
    • To keep shipping costs at minimum, the box should circle province wise. Doesn't matter where it starts or it ends but I will propose that the closer you are to the next receipient the cheaper on shipping it will be.
    • I'll create a list from your posts here (in post#4)
    • Once I have the list I will create the order from one side of the country to the other. Again, this will reduce the amount it cost for shipping. Trust me, shipping from Ontario to BC is allot more than shipping from Alberta to BC.
    • You take out two or three items you'd like to keep, and put two or three items of equal or higher value back. Please post a pic of the items you took here in this thread. No excuses please, be it a crappy cellphone pic or a Canon 5D Mk III jpeg - the maximum size for this forum shouldn't be higher than 800 x 800 pixels anyway!
    • The value of the items is assessed by you. As they say, one man's rubbish is another man's treasure. In-fact, it's a matter of honor. Just don't change that strider against a box of dryer lint ... :nah_disagree:
    • I'll start with a Canada Post large flat rate box filled with some goodies. Try to keep the box's size at this. Remember: postal rates in Canada vary considering size, weight, cost and distance. Please also consider shipping with tracking number so that we can track it.
    • Try to pass the box along as quickly as possible. Three or four days pondering what to take might be o.k.; the quicker, the better for the next in line. If you think you'll be on vacation when it's your turn please state that and we'll work around it.
    • The items should be EDC related. But: no alcohol, tobacco products or meds!
    • Let's get this rolling, and have some fun ("I shiver with anti-ci-pation!" , Frank'n Furter, the Rocky Horror Picture Show) :smile_coffee: :bundle-of-joy_throwvertical::Juggle:
    • If there is not enough interest we'll figure something else out or you could also join the current passaround box happening right now.
    Cheers,

    FACE

    Just a couple of words of advice..


    Don't be a dick. Put in what you take out.. And I'm not talking about a heap of paracord weaves for some higher end stuff.. Rule of thumb: 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.

    No broken stuff or pieces of stuff or general crap you find under the fridge.. If it could be easily broken, take the time to wrap it a bit.. Now I'm not saying expensive stuff.. Just things in generally working order.. So this doesn't turn into a box of trash.

    Pictures, we all want to see them.. Not only to have the people coming up salivate and see what cool stuff you got but the people who contributed your take get to see where it goes which is part of the fun! So if you can't take or post pics, Pull yourself off the list. It's not fair to everyone. I never got to see where half of the goodies I put in the last time around went to because people didn't follow thru with their obligations and I know several others had the same happen. So if you can't, pull yourself out.

    Be expedient, don't hold it a week. Try to contact the next person ahead of time so we aren't sitting on a box for a week. I'd say when someone ships to you, you should be hitting the next person up and if they're not getting back to you (was it 24hrs?) go to the next.. Post when you get it and when you ship so everyone knows. Post the number or the pic of the receipt. That way we know where it is. Anyone who cannot provide at least two post, "I got the box" and "I sent the box and here's my take" will not be allowed to participate further.

    For peace of mind I'd take a pic of what you sent, don't post it.. Just hold on to it just in case if this happens again.

    There are 2 methods of shipping, Regular Parcel and Expedited Parcel. Please pick Expedited as it contains a tracking number and also has $100 insurance. I know it's not much more, as I also shipped the box out myself. If you can't afford the extra $3 it cost to ship expedited than you can't afford to be part of this passaround. If you have to ship across provinces and it cost a bit more, contact me and we'll work something out. Also, please include a tracking number in the post with your pictures.

    Now let's get back to the fun!

    And a quote from tower..
    A good rule of thumb (I think) 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. That would be fitting to the spirit in which Moosh began this gig.​

    Looks like I found this thread too late to get in on this round. I'll just hang out here and see what other people grab for goodies. Enjoy.
