    Welcome to the "Take a Couple/Leave a Couple" - Passaround Box, Vol. 3.0! :)

    This original project started in June 2012 and the box has been travelling around the world since. This is a continuation of the second thread, which was a continuation of the original thread (here), cleaned up and with new rules.

    Here's the deal: We stuff a medium USPS flat rate box with EDC type stuff. You take a few things you'd like, and replace them with items of equal or GREATER value.

    Rules
    1. Sign up by posting in this thread. No PMs. This is to ensure everything is above board.
      1. Don't pester me if you don't immediately see your name added to the list. I will get to it soon enough.
    2. The second post in this list will always be the current list.
    3. The box is to be sent via USPS Medium Flat Rate (~12 bucks)
    4. Use a new box every time. They are free, and the boxes take a beating, items have been lost before.
    5. Three business day turnaround. Get the box, pick your stuff, send the box. Don't be that person. Yes, life sometimes gets in the way, but you should still feel guilty for holding up the works.Ta
    6. PM the tracking info to both me and the recipient (a photo of the receipt is perfect)
    7. You must take 3 photos. The first two get PM'd to me, the third gets posted to this thread.
      1. Contents of the box as you received it
      2. Your contribution
      3. Your take
    8. Send the pics via "Conversations". Tapatalk messages don't appear in the forum software and I may not see them.
    • If you are the recipient, PM the next person in line immediately for their address. If you don't hear from them in 24 hour , post a note in the thread, and PM the next person for their address, and so on and so on.
    • Have fun!
    Reminders
    • If you are next on the list, be proactive and PM your address to the current recipient to keep things moving.
    • If you you suspect you won't be around when the list comes to you, post a message in the thread and we'll see about re-arranging the list to keep the box moving efficiently.
    • Make an effort to trade for equal value or greater. That doesn't mean taking the $50 knife and putting in 12 $5 trinkets. The reverse however, is greatly appreciated.
    • Put another way, it's better to give than to receive. Read this.

    A big thank you to @Blitzwing for his stewardship for the last 5 years.

    I would like in. Is the other one, hosted by blitz, is officially dead? I know at some point recently, he had pm'd you and it was getting rolling.

    Officially dead. If Blitzwing ever sends me the old box, I'll incorporate into this new one, or start a "B" box.

    Hi A.B. I’m afraid this is US only. It would be too expensive to send it overseas. You’re in the Netherlands, right?

    Not me man, music has been eating my budget, in the last six months I’ve picked up a console piano, two Gibsons, an Orange tube amp and a Hughes & Kettner Tube amp. I don’t know :censored: is wrong with me, but I’m going to have to pass on the box a few times. Since my last breakup it’s been a treat yo’self beyond your means year

    I received the first of the seed items from an anonymous donor. Great stuff! Just waiting on the the other one. I expect to send the box out next week.
