So NYC container load out is either September 15 or September 22. Either way my fiancee and I will be travelling. Is there anyone who lives in Manhattan who would be willing to grab our one small box? We'd be willing to exchange money, hugs, acupuncture in gratitude (my fiancee is an a psychiatrist/acupuncturist).firstname.lastname@example.org

Subject: [BManNYC] The Containers: Load Out...IMPORTANT
, NY List

Dear NYC area burners,
Please read this whole email. Don't skim. Use all your powers and read it.
I know, it's kinda long. It's important. (love ya!)
Miss those playa boogers? I know I do!
So here's the news on load-out.
The drivers were able to get about half the East Coast containers out of
BRC on Tuesday morning. They couldn't come get our containers Monday night
because so many of you loaded in late (harumph!)
By the time they came back to get the 2nd round of containers Wednesday
morning, the rain had started and they were stopped by sherrifs at the gate
from entering the city. Too many were getting stuck in the mud. See the
note below from the shipper:
"All my drivers got turned around there are people/truckers stuck out on
the Playa. it rained last night and containers and other things have sunk
and or are stuck in the dirt/mud?. The police/road services are out there.
They told my drivers it could be hours so I will try calling the main gate
in Gerlach later but drivers are hearing that most likely it will be
tomorrow? I am crossing my fingers that the rain does not continue out
So the news is: The containers are potentially delayed by 1 week. If they
get out today, they may still be here by load out the 15th. However, if
they don't get out today they won't be here until the following Saturday,
the 22nd. We will keep you informed as to the whereabouts of our stuff. And
then, you never know when they will get pulled off the rails, things
inspected, stuff broken, etc. We will keep YOU informed as we hear
IMPORTANT: If you gave some of your space away, YOU are responsible for
getting others this information.
IMPORTANT: Load out is different from load in. There are no arrival times.
Show up when it starts. IT is a FULL ON community effort. We pull
everything off at once and you come get it. That said, EVERYONE OF YOU are
wonderful and jump on the truck and do some pulling-off. Those who don't
get pushed to the back of the line next year...
We love you! It's always an adventure! And remember...we guarantee nothing!
