I've posted similar from time to time...
Growing up in Taiwan, I could only salivate over "cool toys" advertised in US comic books and magazines. A few of them could be had locally at a stiff markup to reflect their "upscale import" status. Most were simply unavailable locally at any price!
So, for ye fellow hikers who wish to buy a particular gear piece or three, either you or I can order them using my US address, and I'll ship them over to you. All I charge is actual cost (purchase price + California sales tax + USPS postage). Most everyone pays me via Paypal -- processing it so the net amount comes in US dollars and covers my actual outlay.
My two caveats:
1. Purchases must be for personal or family use only -- onesie and twosies -- and items must be "reasonable" in size and weight. No flipping or buying to put on Ebay, etc. No bicycles or kayaks either.
2. Once shipped, the items will be out of my control and I will not be responsible for any loss or damage. At your discretion, you can choose to buy USPS shipping insurance. Most people don't, and I've yet to lose a single shipment over the years, but one never knows...
Anyway, feel free to PM me if interested.
