Regional item swap?
It may be too late for this to work, but might be doable for next year, but how about an item swap thread.
i.e. If you're travelling from New England and someone from CA wants a jug of Vermont maple syrup...Or someone from New England wants a six pack of a particular beer from a particular microbrew in another region, etc.
I'd love a 6 pack each of the stout or IPA from Snake River Brewing in Wyoming (assuming they still exist).
Maybe for next year?
