Arrived by dogsled !

Lookie here ! @ivandrocco sent me up a much welcomed surprise ! It arrived by dogsled so he probably wondered if it had gotten lost because it took so long to get here.

Thank you kind sir !

Now there must have been a trick to getting that up there. Great work!

I take it back, no trick mission fail, my goal was to fly below radar. I triggered customs and now Yukoner is having his wages garnished.

I wanted to do it too, but @Yukoner talked me out of it. He explained that they get flagged he has to pay tax on them whether he rejects them or not. I'd love to send him and unexpected bomb but i don't want that unexpected bomb to turn into an unexpected bill. I'm still trying to come up with a clever way to hide them in a package.

Something like a hacksaw or file baked in a cake and then mailed to an inmate. Something that even customs wouldn't suspect but I'm sure they've seen it all, so just a pipe dream for now.

Win or lose, we booze.

Nice job Tyler. About time the frozen bomber got something in under the radar.

Go Ducks!

There is apparently a $60 exemption for gifts, and a $20 general exemption, neither of which apply to tobacco. I read that they generally don't bother taxing small amounts, in value and weight, so rather than lie I marked the package as 2 cigars with a value of $20 and a weight of 2oz. and hoped it would slide through on goodwill. Apparently the goodwill between the nations of the northern hemisphere is spent, so if anyone else wants to make an attempt I suggest lying your ass off.
