View Full Version : The traveling cookie box has made full circle!

September 26th, 2011, 05:57 PM

Well, it took us 4 months and 5 days, but it passed thru 18 of our hands!
Starting in Maryland, going across country to Alaska and back again!
Thanks to Kim, (sugar monkey), she and mapquest have figured it traveled
14,926 miles!

It left here with 6 items in it and returned with over 90 cutters and a variety of
other cookie loot!

I found 6 cutters I didn't have and was so happy to see a can of meringue powder!
Saves me from driving 30 miles to Walmart! Thank you!

I loved reading everyones entries on the log. It's just added to the feeling of
really knowing you guys like you were neighbors.
Cookiers are the nicest people!

Now, the question is....what now? Please let me know if anyone wants to opt out, or
continue with a round 2? Start 2 boxes in different directions????
Please post your thoughts and suggestions.

I've added another contribution to the box and it's ready for it's next destination.

Chris, (barbieitch) has offered to start a new box and send it west to east as this one
continues east to west.
Post your thoughts.

I would love to get in on it this time.

Count me in again! It would be nice to have 2 or 3 boxes going at the same time. Seems like we have a lot of people wanting to participate. Just keep it no bigger than the large flat rate box, it got REALLY huge.. Maybe we can send you some money to start it up again to cover the extra postage for sending more than 1 box out.

I'm back in and can get a box going from here - not sure how many we want to have going at one time

September 27th, 2011, 11:05 PM
I'm definitely interested in being in on Round 2 and very willing to start a box going North/South. I'm in Louisville, KY - centrally located on the east side of central US - and home to the UPS air hub!! and KFC, and Pizza Hut, and Papa John's and Texas Roadhouse, and a ton of other restaurant chains -- another story for another day. Anyway, just give us newbies some guidelines as to what goes in the box, to where, and the general rules of the travelling box of fun!

I would love to join this time. I'm in Wichita, Kansas.

Please count me in! I missed the first round but have been waiting for this one and already have a stash to contribute! I don't care how many boxes or which directions they go as long as they all come my way eventually ;) (wouldn't it be cool if we had a few going and like once a month or so a new one arrived on your doorstep? christmas everymonth - cookie squeal!)

September 28th, 2011, 07:06 AM
I totally want in this round!

September 29th, 2011, 01:06 AM
I definitely want to play again. By whatever rules or thoughts you think is best. I loved seeing the picturesnof what was in the box after it's journey. Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the craft sticks in the picture? (aside from carpools and errands, I don't get out much, lol - so I haven't seen them anywhere...)

September 29th, 2011, 01:36 AM
Julie, I got them at Walmart.
