I'm dying to post a pic here.....but I want it to be a surprise when I send it to you.


I'll tell you what I was going to send but did not due to APO restrictions, and/or bulky packaging:

Porn......sorry dude.
Pork......I was going to send you a butt load of Vienna Sausages and some Kielbasa, but apparently it offends the locals.
Beef Jerky.....The air filled package just takes up too much space in that box. I'm trying to get the most schwag into that box as I can. Plus, I have a military friend who said when he was in Afghanistan last year, they had more jerky than they could eat. Is this true? If I can MacGuyver the contents in a way that there is any room left, I'll fill the voids with beef Jerky....how's that?
Pirated DVD's I was going to send you Iron Man, The Hulk, and a couple of other new releases. But then I read that it was a No-No on copyrighted materials.
Beer another No-No. (I don't know what's worse....No Playboy, or no Beer?)
Coffee I simply forgot, and now there is absolutely no room for coffee. I'm stuffing 10lbs of **** into a 5lb bag, as the saying goes.
Tobacco Products I don't know if you smoke/chew or not. From what I hear a can of Copenhagen is a valuable bartering token.


I don't know what it's like at the APO/FPO's, but I read that all packages are inspected. I hope people don't rifle through your **** and take what they want. I'm going to give you an inventory in the box so you'll know if you got everything.


Take care, Cheeto.

Tally,

Thank you and your SWMBO

the pirated movies are not a problem here !!! I think they go for $5 each for movies ( I bought the new James Bond 2 days before it came out in the theatre in the states) and there is always Redtube you are right about the jerky there is a 20' wall of jerky here !

for beer I get this Kulmbacher Alcoholfrei - Kulmbacher Brauerei AG - BeerAdvocate

it is not to bad $2.15 for a 16.9oz bottle

I will say the internet sucks here $80 buck a month

thank you again

Cheeto

Curiosity has gotten the best of me. Did you get the package I sent? UPS tracking has it as being delivered, but that doesn’t always mean anything. My son is stationed in Norfolk and had trouble with someone stealing UPS packages from his porch.

I was the one who sent the bottles in the tube. Getting ready to do a swap and wonder how it worked out and if I should use that method again.

When it comes to sharing my beer, my paranoid mind uses a “no news is bad news” rule. So I’m not necessarily looking forward to a critique, but hope you enjoyed.

Herm

Herm i did get your package a while back and everything made it fine, i made a trip out to the smoky mountains for a little while so i've been kinda out of pocket recently.

Talley,
i think that you may have had 2 bottles of that Habanero Mead hangin around, went to a buddies house tonite and me and him have a small history with apfelwein so i thought i'd screw with him a little and bring some to mess with his head, well we open it up and he takes a healthy swig of it an pulls away telling me that his throat was on fire. Pretty much i tell him that it's just Apfelwein and that he's being a vadge, that is until i taste it....and holy hell that stuff is hot.

So i'm not sure i'm ever gonna use Apfelwein as a tool for mind games ever again and holy hell that stuff was hot man.

Petey,

Late package sent out yesterday. I left the contents entirely unmarked so it might pas if opened. The ones with an ORM-D stickers are Ed's Haus Ale with a handful of homegrown Cascade. The unmarked ones are 12mo old sparkling ApFelWein.

Don't sweat writing a review/critique, just enjoy 'em!

Gentlemen,
This is the coolest program I have ever seen. I just returned from a ten month stint in Iraq in July of this year. I had meddled in some home brewing prior, but uncle Sam decided I had to take a break for awhile. My thanks go out to all of you guys who are supporting this thing.
