There has been a big red banner running at the top of the Main Forum page for awhile now.

We don't want people to get TOO spoiled. If YOU send a pull tab, then everyone else will feel obligated to one up you and send some can slaw or maybe a beaver tail or maybe if they REALLY want to show off a Felix penny

I received my gift from bdu 1962 this morning. I think he over did it. He should get his on Wednesday. We can't track it because the post office only gave me a partial tracking number. Here is what I received.

The tracking number I got.

It should have been longer.

I exchanged addresses with Real_Rat_Fink last week. His package is going out tomorrow (assuming the last item I ordered arrives today)

jimther 12-08-2020 11:58 AM

My Exchange match (JackalopeZL1) and I have now traded addresses and will both be sending out our Gift Exchange packages shortly. As the crow flies, the trip for a package from Boston to Northern California is about 2590 miles (according to Google Earth's "RULER tool").

Looking forward to Ken's surprise package.
