Mic check, is this thing on? I'm smack dab in the middle as a TX resident. Which list do I sign up for? Both?

Texas - East or West? on 09/29/2013 20:14:17 MDT Print View

Do you consider Texas to be part of the eastern USA or the west? Historically, I think it's generally been thought of as part of the west. Louis L'Amour certainly thought so. And when I briefly lived in Dallas (born and raised in California), and commented about Texas being "eastern", I surely riled a few good ol' boys!

The box is on the way to Reggie Garrett. I kept not one but two micro drop bottles WOO HOO. Actually there was still some nice stuff just nothing that I could or would use. BPL member Doug Thomas and I added as much as I could fit in the box.

Going to need a bigger box. I've got quite a bit to add.

Getting the chance to rid myself of a few things is really appreciated. Karma points don't hurt either.

Still some more to add.

I've received the eastern box from Mr. Ries. I will post again once I pillage and pilfer.

Eastern Box on 10/03/2013 20:10:42 MDT Print View

Kevin Schneringer, Jason Cravens, Nathan Washburn, or Matt Diedrich...the first of you guys to reply gets the Eastern Box next. My goal is to have it ready to ship out Saturday. I haven't decided what I am taking out of the box yet, but I will be adding some good stuff to it. There's some really neat stuff here.

Let the race begin.....

I have completed my pilfering and pillaging. I pulled a GPS, couple of cups, and a hiking cookbook. Since this is PIF and I believe in giving more than I receive, I put some really valuable items in it.

You guys have fun continuing to pass this around. It's heading to Kevin in OK next.

@ Marcia and Justin: Here's the link to the spreadsheet, which works much like an Excel spreadsheet. Add your name, etc.

Hey folks;

When you receive the box, be sure to highlight your name on the spreadsheet so others know you've already gotten it. Thanks!

The eastern box is on the way to Kevin Schneringer. I turned it as fast as I could. This box is stuffed.

Admittedly I'm a tech luddite. I keep my gear list still in a notebook as I still haven't figured out these spreadsheet things. How does one highlight one's self?



Big props to Mark our OP for this great idea.
