    I have not shown the entire contents of the box, because my more visually busy pics will not upload. Suffice it to say, it does not look a lot different than it did when it left @PStone. DaveK14 sent some Opinel swag for inclusion, some of which is shown below.

    The nature of the exercise for me was to take out more than I put in, in order to stem the natural expansion of the contents. The Porch is a naturally generous place, so the usual instinct is to leave the box richer than when you found it. It takes quite a bit of psychic effort to go against the grain and take out more than you add back.

    Most of my withdrawals are shown in the nest photo: the Okapi, the Opinel, the small Buck toothpick and the DMT whetstone. I also took the Plano box and one of the Opinel tags that Davek14 sent me for inclusion in the box.

    I put the following items in the box: the EZE-LAPP hone, the Joker N21, the Pallares de Solsona slipjoint and the Schrade stockman. Also included was the rest of the Opinel swag from @davek14, only a few pieces of which are shown.

    It wasn’t easy, and the balance between deposits and withdrawals is close, but the Plano box is a large item and clearly tips the scales in the desired direction.

    Anyone who wants to get in or out, post it up and I will adjust the list. I will leave it open until the middle of next week before drawing a name.

    Nice adds! But I’m out please.

    I need to round a couple more together to add for a future round. Time to hit the pawn shops and antique shops. Plus garage sale season is almost upon us too.

    I am constantly missing the updates on these threads and I don't know why I dig them out when my curiosity has me wondering what's new with them.

    Congratulations @joeradza !

    This box is amazing. Keep it going if you can, folks. I'm getting ready to jump in again here in a bit myself.

    I think the virus has all of us tired and maybe staying in more for the moment. That will change over the next couple months.

    Keep on truckin'
