Status of West Coast Box. CrazyJ PMd me tonight, the West Coast box has not arived. I have the register receipt and it was mailed April 29, Parcel Post.I think that 3 weeks should be long enough to get from CA to CO and it hasn't returned to me. Tried the 1-800 # tonight and there was no one to talk to. I'll try again tomorow. Next step would be to go back to the Post office and see what they can do. I didn't send it with insurance or trackng # . Any suggestions ?

Talked with Customer Service this morning. Basically Parcel Post not delivered in 14 days is considered lost, but it still could be delivered. They couldn't tell how long it "should" take for the package to get there or if the box being oversize would slow things down. The register receipt wasn't any help. I'll try to leave work early and go by the Post Office, maybe I can get some answers there.

Murphy's law, as soon as you start bitchin about something not being there it will show up... The west coast box finally made it to Colorado, only 25 days after leaving Cali. Guess the budget cuts are making it hard to keep the pony express going out here in the wild wild west...

Let me know who wants in on it next, should be ready to go back out sometime next week...

I don't know how it is in other zones but I've had good experiences with DHL and their pricing is a lot cheaper then the post office, plus it includes tracking. I've shipped 15-25 packages that usually cost around $10-17 to ship. Just my .02
If there is still some closed cell foam in the midwest box I will take it as long as no one has a problem with me only being able to add in some really misc buckles and some mesh of a few varieties.

I plan on adding some...
tricolor 1000d cordura
misc black buckles
coyote and tan webbing of different sizes
a couple chunks of mesh
and a build your own BA precut kit.

Im down for a box, have alot of ods and ends (From the ESSTAC box and Romie) to add, looking for OD 3.5 / 4 oz. Mesh in particulair....but pretty much any color would do (Tactical that is)


Hey Broseph, I can have the wife dig the East box out from under my sewing table if you want it.

All: this program needs to be revived or it is going to go the way of the dodo.

-a couple of HK style snap hooks
-misc. colored hardware.


Who wants it? Theres a lot of good shit in here!


Woody, it is still as is from when I initially advertised it. Most of Bullet308's goodies are still there and what I added...lot of good stuff. The box has been collecting dust waiting on it's next home. I'll call the boss later tonight and have her send it to you. I'll shoot you an e-mail to get your shipping info.

Inquiring about the East Coast Box, first is this project/program still active? I am rather new in posts but not so new in time. Do I qualify to participate in this project/program? Now that the formalities of active or not and if I qualify or not are out of the way and if both are Yes answers, where the heck is the EC Box and could I get a list of items still in it?

1. Yes this is still active.
2. The time you heve been a member never had anything to do with the rules for this "game". Simply put, the rules state that you must be a productive member in the RYO room at very least; which you are not.

First thing I would suggest to you is to start participating here before you start asking for things from us. What I mean by that is offering up your experience when someone has a question about a particular topic; or, go and post some of the stuff you have built and give us a detailed run-down of what you did and how you did it.

Second. In the interest of keeping this program alive and kicking, I am willing to overlook the fact that you have brought nothing to the table thus far, if you can assure me that you are well on your way to being a productive member of our society.

If you can do that for me and the rest of the guys here, I'll be OK with you contacting Aries Ranger about the east coast box as he is who I sent it to.

I'll be standing by, waiting for you to assure me that you are on the brink of being a productive member.

Will

Well let see, my posts are low I will give you that, but saying I have contributed nothing isn't exactly fair either. If all I can say is ditto to the guy above me why bother?

I posted my intro per instructions, and have answered two questions for other members in RYO. First being where to fined 1.75" plastic hardware on a regular basis, and answered another question to the snaps used on a MSS and where to find those as well. I asked a question as I do respect the thoughts of those in RYO as to quallity of a couple machine parts which not one of the 84 views gave me any consideration in answering at all. Not even a screw you newbie, nothing. That was really appreciated. I have since ordered the parts and they work quite well, but since no one cared to help me make a decision I figured they didn't care that the items work.

I have done a few projects in sewing including a DPM Smock Mod for a member of LF that lives in my area which turned out to his likeing. I have built some slings from the IDF idea, that current owners and users seem to like. I have also built one 3 mag shingle for my AR platform that is crude to say the least but works for me as of now.

I will agree openly I am new, but I also feel out gunned by those here already. I want to get started and do more, and want to become more active, but you guys aren't exactly user friendly to new folks either.

"No crying, play like a champion".

Dude, I was not busting your balls, I was answering your questions. Simply put, if this program was thriving and well, you would have been denied. Like I said, in the interest of this picking back up, I will authorize you to contact Aries Ranger to set up the next move for the East Coast box as that is who got it from me.

What do you want new guy? Would you like me to meet you in WV and give you a big "welcome" hug? I deviated from the original rules to accomidate you, so say "thank you" and press the fuck on.

Will

Thank you Romie.

Aries Ranger PM incoming.

My fficial get on the list status for everyone otherwise. I hope to be getting the ECBx from AR. Seems like too good of a program to let die folks, step up and claim it next (all of them for that matter).

Oh and a hug would be nice Romie, but you don't have to come to WV just for that. If you get in the Charleston or Huntington area for something else you might give me a call though.

Pressing the Fuck ON

I'm glad you have a thick skin because this is how it is, not only in this room but the whole board.

I'm in Iraq now but when I get home I'll hook you up with that welcome hug.

Again, welcome! Now go build some shit, take pictures, and let us drool over it!

Will

WVAK47, you are the next contestant on the box o crap exchange program. Aries Ranger let me know that he has got his use out of the east coast box and will be back home to send it out in 5 weeks. I know that this is a little premature given that he is a ways out from returning but I wanted you to have heads up so you two can work out the box transition smoothly. Take care!

All: I was going through some things I had laying around and found that I had enough contents to start up yet another rather large box o crap. If someone wants it, I will get a quasi inventory list together and let you know. I will send this one anywhere CONUS but remember, you foot the bill for shipping.

Will

Holy Cow, I had basically given up on it since I hadn't heard anything for so long LOL. Figured he had as well. That is cool, I am still willing to bring it in. Thanks for the heads up on it. I will PM Aries my address again so he can get me shipping cost and all, and I can get that taken care of for him.

So what's in the NEW box of goodies? HMMMMMMMM
