Default Thinking of starting a box pass.

Alright so some of you may or may not know what a box pass is. Basicly in a nutshell, someone starts a box, puts some shisha in it and some other stuff, and sends it to someone. They take whats in the box and then put something new in the box. then they send it to someone else and it goes down the list of participants and finally returns to the starter. The shisha doesnt have to be good, or be new or even shisha, just toss in what you dont want or feel like other people should try. In past experiences with this on snuson forums, it was awesome and really exciting. I think the community here could really get good at this. Dont worry about your trade history. All members in the US can participate.

So If you want to participate, just shoot me a PM and we will get a list rollin!!!1

General Guide Lines:

1.) Lemon.J.Pooding (myself) will be the organizer and route master. I will set up the most time efficient route for the package to follow. Once the route has been setup, I will fill a box with a some Shisha and some other goodies.

2.) When you get the package, please take the other members into consideration. Feel free to take as much as you like, but if you take something please replace it with something of equal awesomeness (IE if you take a whole 50g of DA replace it with some tropicana or something of that sort.)

3.) Because of customs and such this box is limited to US residents only, dont want customs getting in the way of the fun. Sorry uk lads :/

4.) Limit is 10 members! Anymore and it would take to long to get around to other people. First 10 confirmed address I get will be added to the route and I will post the route here.
I will send the box out via USPS Priority Mail. A list of all 10 mailing address (along with mine) will be included inside the box so you will know who to pass it on too. Naturally, the 10th person will return the contents of the box to me so I can perform an exorcism on it and put it to a final rest.

Any other guidelines or comments are appriciated start those PM's!

its a good idea, but you might get someone that puts king mollases or epic shisha for some nakhla or starbuzz, and might end up with jus crap shisha no one wants.

Maybe it should be take what you like but replace it with a equal amount of a similar quality brand

Trade history thing isnt going in. This isnt for money, it isnt brand new shisha, its just to have fun and try new stuff out. There really isnt anyway to make sure you will get good stuff. Its just a suprise. For all who want to participate please email or pm me your address so i can get the shipping list worked out and have a route set up.

Default Re: Thinking of starting a box pass.

Perhaps a way to keep the exchange more fair, or balanced, and also a way to involve a larger group of HP members than those directly involved with the exchanges, would be for the sender to document publicly (perhaps in a dedicated thread or category) what was sent, and more importantly, why. For instance, if I were to send a 150g of a favorite ( and more importantly authentic) Ameran blend to the Mad Hatter, and explain both to the Hatter and publicly to the thread that it was my current favorite, that to me it invokes the traditional non-commercial mo'assel type tobacco's that I grew up smoking, and that in my opinion it was the closest available blend comparable to the elusive, and now possibly legendary, Shooting Star. This would perhaps not only stimulate public conversation on the thread (i.e.- mo'assel vs. tobamel, commercial vs. non-commercial) but allow the person who receives the box to publicly decide what they intend to do with the gift. Keep 50g, contribute 50g of their favorite. Keep it all, and replace it with three different 50g samples of personal favorites. And of course, that person who received the gift can review said gift as seen fit, and then post what they are sending down the line, and why. It might keep the exchange more equitable, would certainly indirectly involve a lot of interested HP'ers, and would allow for some interesting exchange of opinion and experience.

Did you seriously compare Nakhla DA with Tropicana?

HERESY, I SAY!

I'll be sitting this out but just something I think would work well for this is using a box that will fit inside a reasonable size flat rate box. That way the box will arrive, you open the flat rate box take out the exchange box and swap what you want then put the exchange box into another flat rate box and ship it to the next address.
