A question in case I join next years. So when it comes to you you just take a little bit, put some things in then ship it to the next person? What happens with the last person if the box still has lots of things in it, or how exactly does this work?

Well the last person ships it back to the first person (me), so the first person gets back the remainder. As you may have seen in previous posts, everyone one here is extremely responsible and generous, so I expect to get a very decent return investment. It's basically like a huge 15-way trade. PM me for more details if you are curious. :)

I watched this from the beginning. Man I wish I would have signed up.

It's not even about getting the bricks, so much as sending something off that is special to you that you know someone else can use, and seeing how much other people appreciate your bricks!
I hope you guys can work out another one of these soon, I would love to do one! :eyebrows:

Hey if you EuroFOLs can swing it, I'd think it would be cool if you could all add a postcard to the box so that when it get's back to Frisky, he'll have one from a bunch of countries. Just an idea :)

Or maybe the admins/powers that be would authorize another Jambalaya, say... summertime? :sly:

The box is slowly but surely moving towards NL.

What I took out

(I took a few more leaves after taking the photo)

What I put in

For the LCC participants: there are a few print outs of the Map of Roawia included (on regular paper in varying sizes fitting for LEGO tiles) and one sheet of self-adhesive maps. Please coordinate who takes how much, and maybe if someone in the US is also interested, send a few back there too.

I wanted to include a postcard, but I couldn't find one on short notice, so I just attached an empty envelope to the box, may the next ones fill them with postcards.

I found some online, maybe these will do:

The box has been offered at my door today, but I was busy @ the hospital since my daughter decided to pop out of her mother after 9 months of incubation ;) :)
I'll get the box tomorrow and I'll be ready and waiting for it.

If there was a possibility for this I'd totally join because I probably won't be able to next January. :cry:
