Does it seem that the aforementioned problems with the boxes have been fixed? I've got a few things to add, but to be honest I'm not too excited about spending $20 to ship a box of junk to the next guy.

If it's worthwhile though, I'll take one of the Western boxes.

I will take it if anyone wants to ship it to Snohomish, Washington. And E - I am probably about 5 miles from you.

Awesome! on 06/04/2014 09:21:27 MDT Print View

This is fun stuff! And well worth the money spent on shipping. Did I get my value out of it? Yes and no. I took a book that was originally $14.99 in 1989. Would I pay $20 for it at my local bookstore? Nope. But would I recommend receiving this box? Absolutely! It gave me great pleasure going through and guessing where these items have been and who used them.

There are things in this box with a higher value than the shipping cost, but you are not going to find a $300 tent or sleeping bag. But the true value for me was being a part of this community giveaway. If you think of this as a way to get something expensive for nearly nothing in return, stay away. But if you are interested in adding to the fun and letting someone else have the things you no longer use, jump in!

The excitement of your name coming up on the list next, the anticipation of waiting and hoping the box arrived, coming home from a long day at work to find a treasure chest on your doorstep, spreading it all out and rooting through it hoping for that special gem to be added to your personal hiking box and being able to be part of a project of giving was worth way more than the cost of shipping!

Thank you for all the PM's. This Hiker Box will be sent to James Reilly as I believe he is the next on the list.

Thank you Mark for starting this and thank you to everyone involved! Let's keep this going by adding more value than you take!

I'm going to go enjoy my new book now.

The box seems to be making the rounds on the West Coast right now... so maybe I can toss a few things into it while its still in the vicinity.

Yahoooo, the Westcoast box is in Clovis, Thanks Mike on 06/07/2014 15:27:04 MDT Print View

It looks like the next person on the list is Brian B. I will PM him and give him a day to respond. If he doesn't I will move to the next 4 on the list, PM them all and the first to respond will get the box. This is for the Western box, I will keep it in the West. If you are the top five, keep a watch out for PM's. My family and I will be opening the box today with much pomp and circumstance. It is an event for the Whole family.

May the Sun shine and your shoulders and always make you happy.


Peace,

James
