GSXR Nick - care package to Afganistan

Ladies and Gents!
Im going to be putting together a box for Nick who is currently in Afganistan.
He wants to research all of the 09 models so he can buy a bike when he gets back.
Please let me know if you have magazines for Nick. Something that shows all of the '09 models? No sticky pages please!!

Nick - PM me an address to get some stuff to you.

Are you a coffee drinker?
Soap-Foot Powder?
Do you have access to a DVD player?
What else do you need?
We'll fill up at least 2 boxes.


HERE'S WHAT I HAVE IN HAND OR COMMITMENTS FOR:
====The Box====
Coffee packets
Foot Powder
Lemonade mix packets for bottled water
Gatorade packets
Dunkin Donuts Coffee

How long does it take to get to him and how big is this box you speak of? I could give some popcorn for a snack for him and some buddies.

get one of the 5 or 6 bag boxes. I'd rather put a variety of things in the box.
You want to mail it to me or?

Thanks for the help. Snacks are great, foot powder, we do have access to a dvd player in our office. Any type of regular coffee(no decaf), bic lighters, the store doesnt sell any that work more than one time. Any bike pics so we have something to hang up in the office and room. Anything else you can get would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again guys.

Good idea Mike! Get a list posted of what you have, I'll add some stuff to it.

well I'm a bit late but next time try to let me know. I work at Starbucks and we get a free pound each week so I can just keep them and send a bunch next time somethin goes out. It'd be better not to grind it because it'll be better that way so if there's a way to know if they have a grinder that'd be nice.
