I received the box yesterday. I picked stuff out of it today, a paIr of 18 mm CTI cases (I didn't even know they make 18 mm cases!) and a good handful of dog barf from the big bag in the box. I also repackaged an item that was in a bag too small for it before putting it back in tne box. And of course put some new stuff in.

For reasons not germane at the moment, getting to tne post office is easier said than done. I'll mail it to the next stop as soon as I can, but I'm sorry to say that may not be until Saturday.

The box is on its way to MikeyDSlagle.

And a correction to the post above: they're 24 m CTI cases. I was so excited because I didn't know they even made 18s; they don't.

Good deal. Looking forward to rooting around in it.

So...
Did you put them back in since they were 24mm? I would sure like those!!

I got the box yesterday and the offspring and I dug through it. We are picking stuff out and tomorrow I will find stuff to back fill. Hopefully it will go out tomorrow, Friday at the latest.

Some surprising stuff in there for sure. A few I am so very tempted to claim but will probably have to let them pass by. Well, one for sure.

Can't wait to get the package.

You would have left it for me.
After digging through the box...You are right I probably would've left them for you because there was a 38/240 AT clone in there that I greedily snatched up. When it first dropped out I was hoping it was a 38/120 but the 240 will do nicely for sure. Casing only, no closures, which I have plenty of; and now I can build me a cluster that flies on two 38/240s! With it being a clone it may have to be flown as research but that's no issue.

I think I put back more than I took. Emmy just had to have the craft sticks. LOL. We both enjoyed digging through there seeing what all there was. I'll put my name back on the list at a later date.

@bobbyg23
The box hits the PO tomorrow.
@jbrracer
I have his address from the other project.

Sounds good. I don't have any 38mm at cases yet. Really want to try them out soon.

Considering ro the value (both price and worth) of some of the stuff in the box, compared to that of what I've got lying around, I think I'd better bow out of round two.

I'm super pumped to see the box but seeing and hearing what's being done I wonder if I'm in a similar boat. Hopefully that's ok though, it just means I have to be creative.

Not all of it is of high value. I think I put in less value than I took out, maybe not by a lot. And I feel fine about that once. You should too (in my opinion). But now I've depleted some of my better stuff and I shouldn't make a habit of it.

I put in more than I took out because I've got too much lying about. I think that's how things like this, rocket exchange, etc. are supposed to work?

You got water and a pebble, that's what you bring to stone soup. You got a cabbage and carrots or some leftover bacon. Bring it on!

( j/k, no such thing as leftover bacon )

Oh, sure, you read that some people get out more than they put in and now you want to join. ;)
Hadn't been following the thread. Just got caught up and it occured to me I have a bunch of jun... ahem "useful rocketry items" I could put in.

Got the box today. Doesn't look like there is anything I can really use so I will add some and send it on its way. I was hoping there would be another 38mm case in there. Can you pm the next address please?

Sorry you didn't see anything you could use. The 38mm I took out didn't have any closures and probably is not certified, which means it must be flown at TRA research launches, and not any NAR launches.

Its all good. I am into larger rockets so my needs are different than what was in the box.
