glad for the update at the end of the video - sent balearic3 a parcel not that long ago Smiley

I watched the video, rather than look at the list.
Much more fun that way Thumbs Up

Don't think dork and I have ever exchanged - so that's cool Smiley

And I have to mention it - I never envisaged you without hair joe !

Also, thanks for doing it this year Thumbs Up
Appreciated.

Not sure ayone's going to get anything before christmas - certainly none of the internationals will arrive, even if people are super organised (don't look at me lol)
 

So if you could all contact the person you're sending to and get their addresses.
Let the Sling Exchange commance !

so a couple of tips for sending international parcels.

1) never declare the actual value on the customs form. Most countries will charge import tax on anything much above £10 and they will charge you a 'fee' for the privilege of so doing.  So keep your values UNDER 10 euros/dollars/pounds.
1a) always tick the box for 'gift. There is a higher 'notax' limit on gifts than on commercial packages.

2) describe contents as: childs toy or shephrd sling.
Don't get creative - the last thing you want to do is to get the customs people interested enough to open the parcel. And while I know of no country where slings are illegal, it doesn't hurt to just make sure Smiley

3) if you want to pay extra for international tracking - it's usually not that much more (£2 extra in the uk).  DO NOT PAY FOR internationally signed for !
That is a lot more expensive and completely pointless.

Also I like to know which country is sending to which.


Balearic3 - canada
SAK_Survival - michigan
Gaius Marcellus Nerva - minnesota
joe_meadmaker - Pennsylvania
Merddyn - indiana
Al Paca - australia
Kordwar - pennslyvania
NooneOfConsequence - texas
Rat Man - new jersey
JudoP - england
hubert - germany
Morphy - texas
SerKraus - florida
MikeG - germany
IronGoober - california
Slingbasket - south carolina ?
czechslinger1.0 - czech republic
vetryan15 - northern maine
MMF - Utah
Kick - fiinland
LightSlinger - california
TheMightyAslan - uk
CrazyBrave333 - Australia
Curious Aardvark - england
dork  - wisconsin

Right then lets have a mini-competition.

1) furthest internation sling travel
2) furthest internal  sling distance for america.

We've got two slings going between the uk and australia and one from oz to the states.
So that's going to be close.

I have absolutely no clue where most american states are - so no idea on who's got the longest there.

lol yeah - found them all but one now, you'd think I'd know the people I've actually sent stuff to - but nope.
Plus tend to save addresses under actual names, not usernames - I mainly remember usernames lol

Forunately most people list on on their profile Smiley

I have a vague feeling serkraus isn't in the states, but probably wrong lol

I was slinging the glow balls at the big shipping container the local football club have down on the village rec last night.
Just for fun Smiley


pics or it didn't happen Smiley


well you've seen the video - unless I can get a really compact lightweight tripod - no way to improve on the handheld quality.

But after a lot of being chewed, thrown, bounced off corrugated metal - fun because you never know which direction they will richocet at.
I still have them both and they currently look like this.
A little worn and muddy, but still pretty much undamaged.

I'm in Utah right now but I move a lot. I was planning on being in Wyoming now but the weather convinced me not to.

Lol!  Yeah, that's why I have to sport such an awesome beard.  Because the top of my head doesn't grow any hair.  Wink

And it was no problem at all doing the drawing.  Kind of fun actually.


Also, if anyone was curious about the slings that were hanging on the back of the couch, those are the SITH slings I've received to date.  They were from walter, Mersa, and hubert.  It seemed fitting to include them in the video.
