Would be nice if the post office took mine for final delivery… My mother in law works there, and my mail lady who delivers to me is awesome

I live just a little north of Marshfield and work out near Wausau. It seems like a real warmup when it’s like -8 or -9 compared to where it has been. When it gets into the really low temps, it’s the dryness in the air that I notice so much.

Two things that I have come to appreciate when we get these REALLY COLD snaps; high powered lights don’t get hot and the throwers really reach out there in the dry air. I think I hear the DHL guy in the drive way. Smile

It appears I clicked on the row above BLF Special Edition Products.  Will fix.

OK, this right here is definitely in the spirit of BLF.
Just contact adhesive some moleskin or felt on the inside, and good.

I discovered a budget-friendly GT cap in the pantry. Walmart’s ‘Great Value’ brand quick oats, 42 oz size.

It’s a perfect fit, and even creates an air bubble between the cap and lens if you don’t ‘burp’ it. Big Smile

I’ll adhere a circle of soft cloth inside it to further protect the lens from contact with the cap.

My GT is on the way but I have one question that maybe you guys can answer. DHL doesn’t deliver in my city so they hand it off to another carrier. The tracking info doesn’t say what carrier though. Do you guys have any idea how to see who it was transferred to and if an alternate tracking number was supplied for that carrier?

Looks like several have had theirs handed off to USPS for final delivery.

I am just waiting patiently for the next batch of PM’s for my chance to order.

I called DHL yesterday, and they told me my GT was handed off to the USPS in Austin, and gave me the new tracking number. Tracking showed USPS receiving the package at 8:00 PM, and leaving the Austin USPS distribution center at 8:34 PM. My GT was available for pickup this morning at my local post office. The person I talked to at DHL told me they require the third party carrier to deliver the package within a day or two. Call DHL Express and they should be able to update you on your package.

Worked like a charm, thanks!

Just got “mine” in yesterday. Actually it’s a friend’s light. I measured 1032Kcd out of the box. Now time to see what this baby can really do. Cool

Nope, we only have details from the first shipment. Nobody who ordered batteries got shipped yet. Once your lights have shipped, THEN you will get tracking info. You won’t get tracking info until after it ships. So you are in the same situation as the other 1300 people who signed up. Don’t worry, everyone will get their light.

My GT's have not made it here yet.

I was wanting something to do, as we stayed away from the New Years festivities.

So, I had a little fun making a graphic. I didn't get real fussy with the timing.

I feel your anxiety, now. My anticipation of the arrival will grow exponentially.

And to think, all because I was being a cheap azz and bought the batteries along with it.

I know there has been a lot of discussion in here and the official thread regarding shipping recently, however has there been any mention on when Australian ones will ship? All I have seen so far is it appears the US customers will be getting them first and then EU is going to be next?

I may be wrong but I wouldn’t think there would be enough Australian orders to be able to fill a pallet with them, so where does that leave us with fitting into the schedule?

I am hoping to get an update today or tomorrow as people sober up from the New years celebration. I will report as soon as I know more.
