Tiki Treasure Tag(Mission, of sorts)

Could someone give the actual dimensions of the box and the weight please. Want to see what sort of postage I am looking at...

 

I'd be very interested in that info too.

 

I'll pass that info on once the box is on it's way.

 

Thanks. Would be much appreciated :)

 

I made a quick guess of the dimensions and weight so will be interesting to see how close I came...

 

Another thought I had was about the box being made of wood - could that cause issues with customs/border control? Need to make sure that any customs forms are going to be marked "Treated Wood"... and the padlock is sure to perk their interest also... Hope no over zealous customs officers get their hands on it!

OK...so some people were asking about weight and diminsions Etc...Here are some stats.

 

The Treasure Chest fit perfectly in a box that is 4x6x8 inches

The inside is about 4x6 inches, and with the logbook inside, you'll have about 1-1.5 inches height to fill up, not much space, but you can pack a lot of small things in there. The Box with it's logbook, two traveling coins(yes, I attached two) and a pen are about 1.5 pounds.

 

I think this answers some of the recent questions...as for how to label the box on Customs forms, I think I just called it Jewelry Box. That should be clear enough that the wood has been processed. If the padlock concerns them much, they will be able to figure out the puzzle easily enough.

OK, so if I work on a 1kg weight then that puts me at about $34 for AirMail or $55 for Economy International Courier (the cheapest option I can get tracking with) :o

This looks like a fun game to pass the years!! I thought about waiting until Keewee was about to rejoin the list (and save one of us some postage) but that just wouldn't be in the spirit. Looking foeard to seeing in back down under in 2015!!

I am sorry to say this, but I think I am going to drop out of this mission. I can't guarantee the amount of time I will have when the package gets here (because at this rate that should be around christmas or later) with my job, setting up a nursery and in all learning how to be a mom and still doing everything else I need to do in a day.

 

Also, i'm selling 95% of my coins so I will have nothing to put in! :unsure:

 

I will still follow this mission and enjoy what you all get from each other :) thank you for allowing me to be a part of it!

We're going to have to drop out too, as we are not sure where we will be when it finally gets to us.

We're away camping for a bit, and when I get back I won't have much spare time thanks to work so I too had better bow out.

Has the TB number for the tag been shared here in the thread, or do we have to wait until we receive the box until we can track it/see the map for its journey?

As far as I know it has not been shared. I'm going to keep it to myself, but I won't stop anyone else from sharing it(the public number of course). someone could always sort through the Trackables I own to find it too...

I wonder if TeamEccs21 sent it to toojin. If it went to Keewee it might still be on the way there (My parcel to him took 10 weeks!)

 

I definitely hasn't arrived here (yet). I did send a message directly to TeamEccs21 saying to skip me, so I'm assuming that happened.

 

And now that we're saving frantically to come to the US on a holiday I definitely wouldn't be able to afford the return postage :laughing:, especially with it going up AGAIN soon! :(

Package is safe and sound in Michigan.

 

I will be sending it on to Toojin on Monday.

 

Thanks for your patience. No excuses, just doing a poor job of holding up my end.

 

Thanks for a great mission

 

ACK !! SKIP ME PLEASE!! I was supposed to post that long ago

The treasure box arrived in my mailbox today. I haven't been on the forums as much as I used to be so I had no idea what this was. I had completely forgotten so did a search and found this thread and now my memory has been jogged. :laughing:

 

It looks like the box is heading over the pond so I have to save a few pennies for the postage (well more than a few with the weight of this) Lots of nice goodies here....

Great to see this one on the move again but as it is now about be sent across to Europe is there a way of moving me up the list so that it comes to me before it gets sent back to the US :) Thanks

 

Sorry, I have been planning what to send to Sivota since she signed up many moons ago, so I can't swap now!
