    Guess he never sent the box out either because I haven't gotten it yet. Would be nice if someone could contact him and find out if everything is ok?

    I was more worried about him being ok than the box. Might be me but when I don't see someone on for a couple weeks I wonder if they are ok.

    Starting to think I wasn't meant to be part of this. But I sure hope Bernie is ok.

    Yea I can see how you could feel this way. I had no luck messaging berinie, so I contacted a moderator to see if he could contact him. We will see how that goes. Hopefully all is well.

    Could be a good idea to include it in a private area of the member profile.

    I know Bernie is also active on practical machinist (or there is another guy with the same, unique username). I'm not in a position to check to see if he's been active there (on my phone, using tapatalk at the moment) but that would be another way to check up on him. Hope he's okay.

    I just checked and Bernie has not been on PM since 6/13
    I sent him an email through PM. I'm pretty sure he lives about an hour north of me.

    I had sent him a couple pm's with no response. I believe others have also. Seems no one on here knows how to get a hold of him.

    What about sending a certified letter? At least you could see if someone signed for it.

    true...I didn't think about that. They even have his real name to see if his phone is listed.

    Hope it works out one way or another, it was really moving along nicely and I'd hate to see it end like that

    Well he hasn't answered my call or come on here yet and the last post he did on facebook was July 21.
    So it looks like the end of Pass Around.

    I received the box a few weeks ago.
    I will not even ask for forgiveness, but apologize as sincerely as I can, and just say for now that some bad things have been happening to to me. I will explain on the member forum in a few days when I will send out the box as well.
    I am "that guy who didn't send the box" now, and I have also been bad not to communicate properly about it too.
    Again, I am so sorry. It is such a wonderful idea and wonderful that you guys so this. Sorry my problems and me screwed it up. I will get the box out by Monday.

    Bernie

    Bernie,
    It's just good to hear from you. When no one heard from you for over a month , some of us were worried.

    Glad to hear you're okay. Sorry to hear that life has kept you from doing anything in your shop, among other troubles.
