i would be willing to kick in to help cover the shipping costs, if someone could help organize that, behind the scenes, respecting privacy of course. i would rather have more people included than have someone on a tight budget stay out because of the cost.

i checked with the post office: the package is just under 2 pounds, so the lowest cost way to ship it to germany or italy would be roughly $15 US. it would take about a week for delivery.

if it's a problem for anyone, just ship it back to me, and i'll send it overseas.

i think we're gonna need a bigger box, even if you sit on my lap. don't forget the vent holes, and of course, a cooler...

okay, I'll sit on your lap, but the cooler needs to have two compartments: one for lemonade spiked with vanilla vodka, and the other for a nice pale beer. Do you think tortilla chips will fit through the vent holes?

It was me that told jkath of the cost of shipping. I was checking with ups and fedex and it was $47 and up to ship to Germany, until pds knocked me in the head and told me to check with usps. From here to Hannover, Germany, it will cost about $14-$22 for priority, which is 3-7 business days. THAT is where the the price came from. No, I wasn't wrong in the price, I was just looking at the wrong kind of shipping.
