    Two ridiculously cool shirts arrived today from Kern River Brewing Company - no idea who sent them but THANK YOU. I dig them a lot. A whole lot. You can ID yourself through PM or keep it secret - though I think I know and I think it ended up being a one-on-one gift exchange.

    Glad we kept this going, I've never been even a little disappointed in anything I've received.

    The gift I shipped, originally scheduled for delivery on Dec. 24, should be delivered by 8 p.m. today, according to USPS tracking.

    Ho Ho Ho.

    Any updates here? USPS says what I shipped was delivered several days ago, and no package has made its way to me yet.

    Happy New Year!

    We must be exchanging between us. I’m still putting a package together for you - hope it will be awesome and that you like it. I’ve had a death in the family before Christmas that has totally screwed up the holiday season.

    I’ll shoot you a PM with a tracking number when I get it on the way. Very sorry for the delay.

    I’ve been away from my house - I’ll swing by and check for a package today, but won’t open it until you get yours! (Finally)

    Sorry once again for the delay - I will follow through and have been putting the goodies together. Just need two more things!

    I forgot to update Santa on my shipping but dropped it in on the 26th. Should arrive yesterday or today?

    I've been out of town but swung by the post office today to pick up a glorious package with a t-shirt and hot-dog related food items that will be eaten starting at lunch today.

    Thanks, SS! Looks great!

    Enjoy @Pilot! Sorry I couldn’t ship the Packo’s dogs as well (they are awesome) but I figured it wouldn’t survive the trip. So just big ole’ honkin’ dogs on there and slather it in sauce, onions and yellow mustard! :)

    I tried the local minor pros to ship ya some gear and they were awful to deal with.

    As for your gift: got it just now. Feel free to see/hear me open it here:

    Thank you so much...I love me some local craft beers that I have never tried! These are awesome. And the shirt is very cool!

    Thanks to all for being a part of this. Even though I don't get to participate much in the forum, it's always fun to send gifts and get one in return. Ho Ho HO!

    Uh oh, swung by the house, didn’t see anything.

    I usually have USPS text alerts, so maybe I’m not Flip’s giftee? Will shoot you a PM.

    I do think Packo's will survive a nuclear apocalypse, though.

    I aim to please ... or else I'm just a huge, vain assclown. I still can't figure it out myself! LOL
