This is gonna be a good one! A little sweet, a little sour.
LOL!! I was thinking hard about it last night, never have done one before... thinking "what can I contribute?" I searched the forums for what you guys like, and what you might find interesting... found a couple of tins in my stash that would be good candidates. Still wasn't sure if I should, until I saw Pepik's comment!

Each has their own surprising outcomes depending where you fall on the list and where folks are at in their cellars and taste palate.

Don't try to guide the outcome based on my observation! Should be interesting how it'll turn out.
Oh, I won't be changing it based on your preferences, I was just curious what you're into. Without doing any kind of search, what kind(s) of tobacco do you usually gravitate towards?

2. Jester (info rec'd)
3. UncleBob (info rec'd)
4. JimVH (info rec'd)
5. DepartedLight (info rec'd)

There won't be any pie.

I've been enjoying "sweet" Virginia's and VaPer, those creamy Syrian or Lat English blends out of Kramer's in California (I can see why Nimoy, Grant, and other Celebs frequented 'em), and exploring the world of Lakelands as I luckily don't have that "it's soap!" response to them. I have soooo many aros and burleys that I'm flush for sure. ;)

Favorite pie... favorite pie... hmm. Tough question. Thinking... maybe.... lemon meringue.

However, I do understand that there will be NO PIE.

Yes, Sam says it's going to you first, so put something good in it.

You're all in luck, the Box is being organized and packed as we speak. And yes Johnny, we'll add you to fun. But NOW the contestantsparticipants are final. I'll be listing the items in the next few minutes and figuring out the random selector. Stay tuned...

The list has been randomized, and I did it four times just for good measure.
1) Bloodhound
2) SweetandSour
3) DepartedLight
4) FredS
5) JohnnyMcPiperson
6) John-Boy
7) JimVH
8 ) Hugodrax
9) Jester
10) UncleBob
11) Pepik
12) (Lady)Jake
13) TwoXSeven
14) Irish-Dane

Rules to live by:
1. When you receive the box, write and post a response to this thread stating you received the box.
2. The general idea is take a tin, leave a tin; the common sense application is you add no less than an equal amount of unopened tins that you took.
3. You can take up to two unopened tins.
4. Sample, smoke, roll around on your bed with the contents but only if you take pictures of the event, add more stuff, whatever you want to do as long as you don't take more than two or three business days to do it.
5. When you've taken tins and added your own, post a new inventory in this thread detailing what you took and what remains.
6. Complete a new Postal Sticker (provided for you), mark off your name on the list with the symbol of your choice, and be sure to put the list back in the box before sealing. Then place that new postal sticker on the box.
7. Mail the box to the next person on the list within 3 business days using a trackable method. You must post in this thread that you have shipped the box and PM the leader and the next person the tracking number.
8. If the box is unusable when you receive it you must replace it.

Got it?

Hearth & Home El Nino (To change things up a bit.)

Samples to taste and share:
P&C Russ' Summer Splash
G&H Broken Flake #7
C&D 2012 Christmas Blend Chestnuts Roasting

I believe the flask is a Chinese reverse painted snuff bottle.
