The SurpriseBag/Box WorldWide Subscription Round 1

I'm going to send this SurpriseBag(@) around the world.

The idea is based on this one :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_red_paperclip

The general idea is that you receive the bag, swap 1 or more items for something of at least equal value, take a picture of what you took out ( so don't ruin the surprise by taking a picture of what you put in ) and ship it to the next in line.

I'm going to start it off with this content :
The contents of the start for the SurpriseBag

All genuine MrInterface items : a keychain label, a TopreTester, a ModelMTester and a MrInterface keycap.
Note : this should be the only picture of something that was put into the bag ;-)

These are the rules:

Subscription round starts today : 24-1-2013 and ends in two weeks 5-2-2013
If you would like to participate, post in this thread your location so an optimal route can be found for the bag.

The final content of the SurpriseBag will be auctioned to the highest bidder, the funds will go to the upkeep of the Deskthority forum.

Hopefully this will grow from a SurpriseBag to a SurpriseBox!

And me!!!

From a logistics point of view it is wise to start with me, because I 've got to send some stuff to Ascaii!

This will end up just going in circle between people sending stuff to each other won't it?

Ehm, no?
A receives the package from participant B, takes something out, puts something in, sends it to participant C.
Repeat until last participant sends it to Mrinterface.
Can't see how this is sending each other things...

It was a joke considering two people so far are planning to ship it along with other stuff to the next person in line. :roll:

Now I wonder who could add the most to the bag ( or box ).....

How does the proverb go? One man's trash is another man's treasure....

Except for me. My trash is another man's trash.

Okay, I'm going to send this one off into the world.

Ascaii and 7Bit : which one can I send it to? I'll put 2 mrinterface caps in *grin*

If you guys figured out which one will be receiving the bag for the first time, please PM me the address I need to send it to.

I've photographed the stuff I added so if someone doesn't have a camera, I can help out.

7bit is on vacation, but he sent his contribution to the Surprise bag to me. It has grown a LOT in size.

7bit has claimed the MrInterface Key chain and second MrInterface cap. His contributions are massive in comparison, so I think its fine for him to take two things.

I will make pictures of the STB today or tomorrow and then get it ready to continue to the next person. MrInterface, please let me know who is next in line.
