CW half links World Tour report

Post by desmodue »

CW was kind enough to supply the newer properly sized half links for my C60 Trident. Sent via Royal Mail on/around Aug 12th to Peru, Indiana USA. At one point the package was less than 150 miles from my home when it was at the Chicago terminal, but ended up in Lima, Peru South America. By the time it is delivered it will have covered over 12,000 miles on the journey. All for the price of a stamp.

Not a rant, just an amusing situation.

I am envisioning an envelope like one of the old steamer trunks with all of the stickers!

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)
