    Talking CLOSED: trader box

    has anyone heard of this? you get a box put some gear in it ship it to the next person on the list he puts in a piece of gear and takes a piece, then forwards it to the next person etc till it makes a full circle. just think of all the swag we could be trading.

    Sounds like a great idea. I think I'll take that Warbonnet Blackbird out of the box, and send someone my Hennessy! Keep paying it forward.

    I've heard of these full of camping/backpacking gear. I've also started one for geocaching.
    Never thought about a hammock goody box, though... Sounds like a great idea to me!

    All of my gear is home-made, but I could trade two hammocks for whatever grabs my attention in the box.

    I have had a couple of these boxes come my way. Mostly containing knickknacks and miscellaneous items, not "big" things like hammocks, tents, tarps, sleeping bags. I did however slip in a hammock into one before I sent it on its way.

    im not real sure how this works as far as how you get the next recipient of the box. and if this thing comes full circle or what? it wouldn't have to be limited to just hammocks, but could include all things for the hammock experience, lights, stuff sacks,homemade stove etc. don't know if there would be a min$$$ for items or a take only one thing rule. or take more as long as they are of equal value rule. don't know but im thinking about starting one once i have it all figured out. im curious to see what we end up with. guess we could keep track of the box on this site. any ideas? hey duct tape you seem to know a little about this box idea.

    I signed up for one of these on a backpacking forum a while back...haven't seen it yet, over a year later. Looks like there is a master mailing list to be maintained. Great idea, though.

    I'm willing to play. I have a lot of random stuff from packs to tents, hammocks to cooking gear, pads to stuff sacks that I need to unload so I can get some new toys.

    I plan on putting some on here for sale but would be glad to trade in a gear box as well.
