    So box A was sent out today. Not going to make excuses, dropped the ball. Should have found time to do it before now. Apologies.

    Well I had it out because I was on the fence about it and after trying to pack the box for awhile I had to leave something out because I could barely close it as it was.

    Solid though.

    Alright, just a quick heads up. I got box B on Friday. :bounce:

    I've pretty much decided what I want but have not yet figured out what I intend to put in (always the hardest part!). The box has blossomed from a medium flat rate box to a large and I'm thinking about taking some of the bulkier items out to squeeze it back down to size. This is a little easier said than done...:confused:

    I've contacted the next three people on the list and I'm hoping to send it out Tuesday or Wednesday. Pix of my take will be posted here when I'm done. Pix of everything else will be sent to Blitzwing.

    :angel:

    I do a layout of every item in the box. That's really the only way for Blitzwing to see what is in the box and track the contents. I don't try to get every item in the same shot (it would be too hard to see small items in such a pic). Instead, I take about five pictures or so with a portion of the box's contents until everything is clearly pictured.

    Hope that helps! :happy:

    I do require pics of the full contents as you received it for a few reasons.. One is a gauge to see if it's building up with crap instead of having to pull it back to clear it out frequently. Second it to keep people honest from taking gear without letting us know. If something goes missing I can track it down pretty well just with those pics.

    I wasn't aware of this during the first go round. I thought it was just pics of what we took and what we added
    To make sure we were putting back equal value.
    I will make sure to do the layout pics this time.
    This will of course slow my same day turn around time, it may take me till the next day now ;)

    ^^ One of the new rules to the Canada Passaround Box that will be mandatory^^ Thanks @Blitwing for the idea


    Noooooooooooo, people wouldn't ever take items without letting us know would they? :rolleyes:

    List of items missing from the Canada Pass-around Box

    Least of all, they certainly wouldn't take an item of value and replace it with one of lesser value ............... Or would they?:nah_disagree:

    Hmmmmmm??????????????????

    Sorry, I'm having another one of those days!!! :p

    Cheers,

    The really sad thing about the whole Buck fiasco? Ten dollars. That's all you have to send to Idaho with your jacked-up Buck 110 for a non-warranty blade replacement, and you'll get it back in the condition shown in Blitzwing's pictures. Ten dollars, and zero cost of integrity. I've sent five knives into Buck for blade replacement (I developed quite a collection of broken Bucks when I didn't know I could have them fixed so reasonably), and all have come back good as new. Three of those I paid for knowing I had broken the blades mistreating the knives. One broke in the performance of its duty, and Buck fixed it for free. One simply wore out, and Buck fixed it free also. The point I've wandered from is, whoever pulled the switch and didn't picture the Buck 110 with his take paid a lot more than ten dollars, even if he doesn't realize it now.

    Dishonest people just burn my :censored: ...... that's all I was getting at. But I totally get your point 100%.

    I just can't believe that there are people out there that are still trying to cheat the system.

    http://imgur.com/jrsb3Yn sorry I don't know how to make the image automatically appear. I choose to keep this mainly because it has an axis lock, never had one before and have thought of getting one and didn't know if I would like it. So far it's not bad, fun to play with lol
