Wow! Jeff’s got the box!!! Check out his blog entry here to see all the great stuff that was in the box. ~ Das Map After Jeff the box comes back to ME! Woo-hoo! ;-) I can’t wait to get this in and dig through this treasure chest. I looked back and saw the first post was 160 days ago – we’ve been ‘on tour’ for almost 6 months! Pretty cool. ~ STAY TUNED TO THE BLOG FOR MORE INFO ON UPCOMING SWAPS AND SWAP-RELATED EVENTS! ~ If you have no ide...
Wow! We had a super-quick turnaround from Matt and some really cool stuff added. He did a great write up on his takes and puts as well as some projects he did for the swap. If you missed it check that out here. I’m looking forward to getting my grubby hands on some of the wine barrel wood, I really enjoy turning wood with a story to it! ~ Le Map ~ For those counting the dots, we didn’t miss one… bigguy had to drop out due to some other commitments. We’...
Matt got the box today! We are really trucking along now… he’ll get us some pics up soon and said he’s got some nice Redwood he’s cutting up for blanks. ~ El Mapo ~
We didn’t even need to use a jump to get this one to its next destination! A quick trip across Washington state and the box will be in the hands of jimp. Jim is ready and waiting… After that we drop down into wine country to visit Napaman, then to rb765 in SoCal before heading beck East to jeffthewoodwhacker and dropping back to Atlanta! We’ll get this thing completed after all. :-) Here’s the map!
Rikkor’s had his way with the pen trade goodies now and he’s been nice enough to repack in a new box and get things moving to arw01 in Washington state! Looking at the pics shows us there are a lot of great pens, kits and blanks in there. PLEASE READ Since this trade is taking a while we have had some Jocks that have had to step out. We may have others that are no longer active so when you’re turn is up please send a PM to the person you are sending to before shipping t...
Great news for those that didn’t see the previous entries, the box is safe and sound in Bruce’s (CanadianWoodChuck) hands and will be on the way to Rikkor in MN soon. We’re all glad to see the box back in action and even more so that things are mostly OK for Ned. Make sure to keep him in your thoughts and prayers! The map! Canada Post told Bruce he should make it over to Rikkor in about 8 days, that’s not too bad at all and gives him some time drool in an...
<sigh> Looks like I’m bearing bad news today… here’s the scoop: No pen trade box has make it to CanadianWoodChuck.35 days ago NedB said he’d ship the box out the next day.NedB hasn’t been on LJ in 27 days.I’ve emailed, PM’d and left a voicemail for NedB with no response. Last time we sent a box to Canada it took a while, over 3 weeks if I recall. However we are now over a month on this and we’ve not seen it in Canada yet. I assume th...
We’re about to find out! Man, I really got discombobulated on this last trip, The box made it from Scott to Ned without me updating the blog and then I forgot to tag the last entry as part of the series so you can see Ned’s update here. Now, the box should be on it’s way to CanadianWoodChuck, in Canada, of course! I think the timing on this couldn’t have been better as I know we’ll all be busy around Christmas and the New Year so it’s a great time t...
Scott made the prediciton a while ago this wouldn’t make it to him by Christmas. Looks like Santa was listening and his helpers kept this moving right along. You get an early Christmas present! A little visual aid, a/k/a ‘The Map’: Enjoy Scott, looking forward to seeing what you do with these goodies!
