  • The Traveling Box of Drums... anyone remember that?

    What happened to it? Where did it end up? Who has/had it last?

    Eyehearya was the last person that was supposed to have it. The general thought was, it was gone forever and Race was in the process of starting a new one. But that, along with a lot of members are a distant memory.

            He reported back they had to abandon that and that they had to start from scratch out west or something. Hope they're doin' alright.

              Last I remember, Box-O-Rocks was living way north right by the Canadian border. I want to say like Montana, Idaho or Washington state?

                The original box died somewhere out in arizona I believe, when a member who I cant remember exactly, said who couldnt afford to ship it somewhere...???? I was going to start a new one, but the lack of members here makes it just more likely to fail. Great idea.....failed by a deadbeat member.

                          it's a thought... but so is relative anonymity... if we did start another one, realistically what kind of shipping/mailing charges are we looking at? and what, if any, were the rools of engagement?

                            When the box passed through our house many moons ago, it was nearly 16x14 in size. When I shipped it, it was nearly $20 cost. I would say if you cant afford $30 to ship one somewhere, there is no use in you participating. I got a bottom paiste pst high hat cymbal out of it, packed it back up with a splash that I had modified to be a trash splash, some brackets and odds and ends and sent it on its way. It cost me more to ship it than what I got out of it, but thats never been the point. It was suppose to be a way to help, or give back, until someone ruins it. To many greedy people out there. We could still start one back up, all 5 or 6 of us here could participate.......

                              I'd be down for doing another one. I don't have enough to start it, but could/would contribute if it came my way
