Devman has had it for two months, maybe he’s already sent it on?

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

he got it on 8.june.2016 today is 14.september.2016 thats over 3 month to me i dont know which calender you use in the US but on mine thats 3 month.

since that he didnt post a pic nor a statement that he forwarded it to the next on the list. a message in a bottle might be faster.

Dunno, got it on eBay. Supposedly it shortens shipping by an average of on month.

Lost, stolen, mislaid, maybe he’s embarrassed to say which. In the absence of information all we can do is speculate and wait. Could be more important things have occupied his time. Anyone know him personally? I hope he’s ok.

It’s a shame if the box has gone missing… I thought it would be real cool to draw up a map to see where it’s been

It was bound to happen eventually. Car accident, stroke, simple mischance, who knows? Still a great idea and fun to be a part of. Why not do it again? I’d be game.

It was going to happen to one of us at some point. What happened to it isn’t as important as what happened to him.

He is a devoted flashoholic, I have sent him some of my springs last year. I hope he pops up again at some point (with or without the box).

Since a few people here know where he was at maybe someone should send him a letter just incase to see. If he didn’t move that is.

so lets starts a new round.

there is already an existing list with intered people for round two so may we start and ad the remainers from round one to it.

maybe we could also set a time frame in which this has to be opene pics taken and forwarded if someone is to busy and not home on regular basis maybe thats not the game to play i think 1 week per person should be sufficient to open take pics and forward ? any thought?

One week after it arrives sure because shipping international can take longer than that in transit.

ok shipping we have no controll over but if it arrive in ones house on monday it should be possible to open it take pic and pack it and resend it within the next monday. on transit and shipping and custom we got zero influence so we have to accept it as it is but in the last round it took sometimes week till one forward it and other guys never took pics of the inside so it was a bit lame the whole thing

I think that would be just fine yeah, you can put that in a little TOS post so people know from the start, ultimately that’s up to 3tronics or whoever makes the new cache but I like your idea.
