    How do we remedy this? Box a was not good when it came to me. So much I used all I had for a and b and didn't participate in b.
    Should we send a list to the administer of the box of our proposed donations?
    Have a list based upon this so as to eliminate all expensive stuff on one end?
    Member a buck knife and 3 moras
    Member b 2 zippos and a signal mirror and some miscellaneous survival kit jazz
    Member c, zt knife.

    That sort of thing? Just to spread it out. Of course theres always going to be that thing we see we really wish was in there when we had it.

    I haven't gotten much new etc stuff over the past year so I don't guess I've missed anything. I always like a new pen, light or knife. But I kind of got what I wanted and quit. Well, just enough to satisfy me. I do still get a bit crazy with field notes. But those need replacement. Haha.

    I stay away from places that make me want to spend money. I've had my eye on a buck 110 for a while but coming here trying to find one I always see other things I don't need. Don't we all?

    I don't think we have to go that far.. It'll turn from fun to a chore, and that kind of defeats the reason for this.. I think just being aware of it will make a difference.

    The fun of it is, seeing what you can choose from, seeing someone pick what you put in, and the little pang of good natured jealousy seeing some pull something that makes you say "where was that when I had it"

    Plus now I see how it's progressing from person to person and can head it off.

    It's not just these boxes.. Even the Canada passaround suffered the same.

    My big thing is just making us all aware and not thinking fellow members are trying to screw people over.

    True dat.
    I've participated in many a pass, headed several up. Seems one of the only ways I found to keep them up to par was lots of small rounds. Not ever a right answer exist s. I agree. Just have fun.

    I'm still waiting to see if Nwjavahead found anything I put in there interesting enough to grab.

    Wow, I had totally forgotten about Bugs Bunny. I put him in the box months ago, so it's kind of funny to see him pop out now. I think everything else I put in got snatched out long ago.

    Just got box b today. Going to go through it tomorrow morning and see what's what. Quick glance there is some cool stuff in a very full box. I have some good stuff to add, so forgive me if I grab a couple extras to make room. I will make it worth it though. ...

    Late day today, will get things finished tomorrow. I barely have the energy to type this in much less the box. I found some edc stuff I forgot about, so going to add that and then some. AK added some cool stuff to the box that was pretty tempting, but I left some for the rest of you. ;)

    I thunk about taking that Boker to free up some space.
    I put that Buck Creek in there. And if that is a Jet Beam Jet-1 MK.II X I put that in as well.
    It gets quite a bit brighter on a 14500 Li-Ion!
