Ya, I don't think any rack FX are gonna fit in the box.

True, but I'm not one for messing around with pedals unless I can get it if I desire GAS tempts me everyday, even just looking at pedals I get major GAS Plus my post office isn't the greatest of workers... Sometimes they can make a small package take a month till it's actually shipped and on to it's next location unless you pay out the ass for the shipping... So I'm staying out for that reason too, plus I'm pretty sure they don't cover lost or stolen packages so I can't meet the requirments.

I guess that makes it less of a surprise Just post all the pics at the end, that way we all can see what was in that box at one time or another! I would love to see what was there, might make me GAS a little.

The charity was an idea because I seen there was no noting on what happened afterwards. The sob stories would be entertaining though

Cheers,
Xter

That's like 20 pedals. Not even a large priority box full of wahs would be that much.

welp when I sent Tim a box with 4 wahs we were also only able to get 4 or 5 Boss pedals in it before it was overweight. Shouldn't be an issue but just a friendly heads up

I'm good for domestic, but I don't wanna have to ship international guys.

Just so we all know for when you do the order.
I can spare the shipping for domestic, but my family needs the money too bad to spend $60 on shipping a box.

if it comes to Aus this year I'm out.

Paid for 2 lots of international shipping, 1st one came back to me with no reasoning, and the second one disappeared off the face of the earth.

I'm in, I've got a couple of pedals I wouldn't mind swapping. Located in Southern Indiana so I doubt I'd be the one shipping it overseas but I could slip in a few bucks... if it stayed in the box

Who has PayPal account? Delegate them to be the one to ship internationally.

Those who want to be in on the Mystery Box for each continent could chip in a small fee to the one who has the PayPal account.

Sure, each individual on each continent is going to have their own national shipping charges, but if we passed on a couple (insert local currency) to the international shipper, everything might balance out.

Also: I saw some map application once upon a time that allowed members of a group to place a pin on their location. What of doing something similar to see who is all in, and where the box is?

I wouldn't mind doing this. I have a few spare pedals to swap out for something useful.

I think we need to work out who will be involved in this before doing a route plan/payment plan. That way we can work out geographically the most cost efficient way of shipping. My god that's a lot of big words.

Here's the list of people who have shown interest thus far. If I missed anyone just post again saying that you're interested. This list is still subject to change as Matt see's fit, based on his criteria (certain post count, time as a member, WTLT/PBT status, etc). Maybe Matt can post this in the OP.

Edit: Once we get closer to having a definitive list I'll go through and sort them by regions to make it easier to see who's near who.

Matt would have to keep every pedal everyone puts in to put two of his pedals in

I've still got some regular stuff. I didn't go that far in my rig upgrade. Still got a modded GCB-95, Decimator, the KoT clone and some others.

Updated the OP. Let's start talking restrictions. I'm thinking WTLT/PBT member or 1000 posts.

But if you want to get that technical, Dom didn't start it either.
