You guys are killing me. I was just razzing you, Winton.

One of my favorite and most used tampers is a Winton .44 mag cartridge tamper. He put a couple of BBs in the brass and it makes a cool clicking sound when used. I fidget with it a lot, too.

I'm starting to save my used pipe cleaners so I can forward them along.

Just mail them to Stan. They're not fancy where he's from.

I almost included a cherry pie, just for you, but ran out of room in the box. Maybe next time.

USPS says you have the box, Jim. Hope that's true. Looks like a good weekend to go through it.

I opened it this morning. This one is off to a great start. I’ll let you know the give-n-take soon and have it outbound on Monday.

That's 3 samples right there. So that means I get two. :)

I'll just take an extra couple of tampers, then.

Yeah, I think this needs to be a round trip box. I'll definitely make a pie.

Ok, great, there are 8 of us! Eight is a nice round number. Some say it's the perfect number, because there were 8 people saved from the flood. Anyway, the box is loaded and in the mail to JimVH now. (I'll send a PM, Jim, with the tracking number.) Below is the suggested mailing order, which will send the box from Texas, up through the midwest, then northeast to the famed three rivers area of the Allegheny Plateau, down the east coast from there into Billy Graham and Andy Griffith country, then south to the Gulf Coast, before coming back to Texas:

1. JimVH
2. Jester
3. tuttle
4. Winton
5. hugodrax
6. DepartedLight
7. Fainn
8. sweetandsour

Please send individual PMs as needed to whoever you're sending the box to, to get their address. Also please obtain a tracking number when you mail the box, and communicate that the box has been sent, received, etc.

I've kept it simple, the box is relatively light, with only tobacco samples, a couple of unopened tins, one pipe and a few cleaners. Contents include the following:

Unopened tins: Tudor Castle (2015), FMOT (2016)

Samples, in varying quantities: Sweet Whiskey Rope, Jack Knife, Blue Note, Granger, Fusliers' Ration, Prairie Wind, Black Velvet, D. & Sons Red Lion, Gordon Pym, Embarcadero, Carolina Red Flake (small batch), and Plantation Evening.

Used pipe (that needs a good cleaning): Ben Wade Rustic, that fell out of rotation many months ago and needs a good home.

Pipe Cleaners from 3 Noggins.

Safe travels for the box. Hope you guys enjoy.
I'm not sure where Mustangii is located, Midwest I think, Winton can get his address and send there, then Mustangii sends to Hugo.
DL sends the box to Adam, and Adam sends to Fainn.

Ok, there's the usual 10. Perfect!
