Hi everyone,

My deepest apologies for the delay - the arrival of the wonderful little package coincided with the "busy time" of my internship as well as the "busy time" of my academic obligations. I am happy to report, however, that I am ready to hand everything back to the majestic eagle and send everything on its way again!

As such, I am about to send a message to Lia-Awenydd as the next recipient. As soon as I have all the needed information, off it goes!

From under the pines,
Silverwolf

Well, I haven't heard from Lia-Awenydd, so I will open it up to others: the first person on the "Round One" list to send me a PM will receive the package. Any takers?

Well, it seems that Endovellicus was first to the keyboard. Sorry Old Luddite!

As soon as I receive contact info, I will send it away. I suspect it will be in the mail on Wednesday or Thursday (busy week ahead).

I haven't heard from Endovellicus yet. If they are located in the US, we just came off of a major holiday weekend, hence I'm trying to allow for plenty of time to respond just in case. However, if I don't hear anything by say, Monday night or Tuesday morning (Pacific time) I'm gonna go ahead and ask for Old Luddite's information so we can get it going.

Pax,

I am very pleased to report that I received the needed info this morning! So, it looks like our little package will be making its way back across the Atlantic. I suspect it will be in the mail by tomorrow or the next day.

Well, it took a bit longer than I originally thought - I got called away unexpectedly for several days. I am, however, back home and headed to the post office as we speak.

And away it goes!

Well.....guess what I have sitting here in front of me !

THE SNAIL HAS ARRIVED !

What a wonderful and fantastic pleasure to receive.

I will have a couple of days reading and enjoying the package (which looks to be a real treat) and then add my own offering to it.

I think this is now the current list...

ROUND ONE - still to receive the package:

LittleAcorn
Corax
Greenstar
Yex
Nyssa
Hedgeapple
Kaeriann
Journey
Kresta
Aeré
Lia-Awenydd

ROUND TWO - have had the package once, but interested in it again:

Aphritha
Heddwen
Xidia
DJ Druid
Shadowcat
Acacia
Helen O'Cobhthaigh
Silverwolf85
Endovellicus
Old Luddite

....so I have done this randomly and have put the names of the "round one" folk in a "hat".....and the next person is.....

(that would be telling....I will send them a PM and then they can reveal themselves when they choose!).

Hello to all snailers :tiphat:

I’ve sent a message to one of the people on the "round one" list and as of yet had no reply (sent a week ago). The message is also saying that it is "unread". I have just noticed that they haven’t logged on here for many months (probably should have noticed that before).

I then looked at a couple of other people and see that several on our list also haven’t logged on here for months....over six months in some cases. Well I assume that when it says "last active" that it means that someone hasn’t logged into the forum at all ? I am not sure, maybe it means they just haven’t written anything?

I appreciate that people are busy and I myself don’t log on here every day either, in fact I don’t use a computer every day and don’t have a smart phone ("Old Luddite", by name and nature!), so I understand this and was not in a rush. To me one of the aspects of this is the pleasure of the old ways of communications (mixed with the new!).

My concern is that I am wondering if some people have effectively left the forum or not participating in this any longer as they have been inactive. I am sure that its not a problem at all with the actual forum, but I was kind of guessing that the "snail package" would move around every couple of weeks or so. What do others think?

Could I therefore have some suggestions as to what to do next as I will be ready to ship this out again after the weekend and it does rather seem that maybe we need to revise or update the list somehow.

Its such a fun idea and shame if its ground to a halt....the package has some great stuff in it!

All good wishes
