    we use LBC to forward our goodies to the PI
    they charge $100 for a 18x18x32" box
    we get so many named brand t-shirts shoes & shorts from the bin at the local dump
    we have sent 4 boxes this year , i guess no one in the province will be walking around 1/2 naked with us on the case :)
    if i have stuff that cost real money i build a plywood box that will just fit inside the LBC box
    this prevents the bandits at customs from ripping a corner on the box & reaching a hand in for free goodies
    i used this trick last year when sending 2 full sets of wrenches to my farther-inlaw (american & metric)
    he thought he had died & gone to heaven
    no more chinese junk wrenches for him
    life is good

    you need a live trap
    if you get a dog just send it on it's way

    If I catch a dog in my trap and I know who it belongs to, I call them and have them come get it....... once.

    LBC retapes and straps the boxes in front of you here. I have never had a problem with the seals being broken,

    your father in law must be happy with those tools. he probably uses them as a pillow when he sleeps

    the seal wasn't broken the corner or the box was torn
    some people ended up with only 1/2 of their box full
    the rest "grew legs"[​IMG]

    next time i think i'll go for a 1/2" drill with voltage converter

    I really could not believe my dear little dogs would do such a thing ..until they were caught in the act.
