Anybody in Salt Lake City? Or Reno/Sparks?

We're rolling through those areas and could really use some stuff from Amazon... Hoping to find someone to let us get some packages delivered!

There is actually an amazon distribution center in fernley nv. Its on I-80 about 45 min east of sparks. Not sure if you can order and pick up direct but it might be worth a shot calling them.

Well, wouldn't you know it I just happen to live in Salt Lake City… As long as your "packages" are not delivered late at night by three shady characters who won't walk into the lighted areas, refuse to give their names, and are twitching as they walk, I might be convinced to help you out! Also if the "packages" have air holes cut into the sides or leaking fluids I might hesitate… ticking or muffled sounds emanating from the container is also a deal breaker! Other than that I can't see a reason to say no! How soon would you be passing thru, and do you need a place to park the bus (or is this a drive by)?

We're currently in Wyoming, I'd expect to be in Salt Lake by the weekend.. I try not to drive too far per day but if you don't drive far in wyoming you don't get to your next exit!

Our thread: http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f27/sp...bus-17338.html

The amazon stuff is easy to time and know when it will arrive, mostly I need some bus parts (and bus accessories), but we also need to get an order of Syolent (https://www.soylent.com/ and yes I know its people) before what we have runs out...Unfortunately, they aren't as accurate on delivery timing.

We're not in a hurry to get anywhere and we love meeting bus people!

I have a wedding that I'm being forced to go to on Saturday evening and I'm going Scuba diving Sunday, but I'll be home after scuba I'm guessing around 6pm. If they can drop the pkgs without a signature that would be ideal, but if an X is required we can make sure someone is here besides my dog.

So Saturday day and Sunday evening I'll be up for meet'n'greet. If you want them delivered here BEFORE that and then only have to time our meet up, that works best… (?) We are an easy exit off the I-15 so no thru-town routes or switchbacks or wooden-tressled bridges that sway…

It seems that Soylent finallymoved their prices on amazon to something closer to ordering direct, so everything we need to get can come in from amazon.. With prime shipping I don't believe they ever need a signature. If we order today it would arrive friday. Maybe qa saturday breakfast meet-up?

Sure… Saturday breakfast sounds good. (No Soylant… real food) Let's talk out of earshot of the rest of the crowd… PM me… we'll figure out logistics and somewhere to send your stuff!

Going for a mountain run (or jog, … or walk… it's 100 degrees) but will check back later for us to work out the specifics.
