This is a fabulous idea. I'm in NE Oregon and have a whole bunch of things that I have been holding on to which others might like to have. So, I am in.

Now, if those east of the Mississippi do not want to share with us Westerners, maybe we need to start another box. I'll give it a couple of weeks and see how it goes. Otherwise, I'll start a second box if the interest continues to build.

I would like to be contacted when the box is in the Phoenix area. Could even meet others in area and split shipping to next state/region.

Great to see so much support and as much as I hope this one makes it to everyone interested, there is no reason to wait -- to echo Rodney, start your own! Everyone here undoubtedly has a bunch of miscellaneous pieces parts and gear we've tried and abandoned. Heck, start two or three boxes moving (I've seen some of those gear closet pictures in other posts :P). Maybe we can get a new forum for PIF Hiker Boxes so each can be its own thread...

I'm in socal and would love to as well. Just thinking, maybe some type of shared google doc might be good to keep track of everyone interested? You can remove your name once you've received it? That way we don't have to go digging through the thread.

I live not far from you, maybe we would split the postage if it was to come to Michigan.

Put me on the list for destinations out west. I'm in South Eastern WA, and would love to participate. Totally dig the spirit of the PIF box! Terrific idea.

Spreadsheet on 08/10/2013 21:48:08 MDT Print View

Alright, I had some free time tonight so took it on myself to create a Google Docs Spreadsheet. Let me know what you all think. Anyone can edit it. I figure it's an easy way to keep track of who is interested in receiving a box and their location. I also set it up so that we can keep track of each box made. The idea would be that whoever sends or receives the box would update the "current location" of that box. Let me know what you all think. The spreadsheet is here. I have no problem trashing it if the general consensus is that it is not needed, but I thought it might help.

So I added my name to doc as an interested participant. Thx Jeff.

everyone added on 08/11/2013 10:23:49 MDT Print View

Alright, I've added everyone I found in the thread to the spreadsheet. Looks like we have enough people out west we could start another box if someone has enough things and wouldn't mind starting it off. As far as I can tell the first box is in OH and headed to MD soon.
