As a follow-up, here's a list of stuff he sent me that they'd dearly like to get in Altimar:
Disposable Razors - ones that last a while (BIC, Schick, Mach 3)
Cigars (handmade or machine made) dip, chewing tobacco. Flavored stuff is popular
white running socks (sizes 8-12). The kind that go above the ankle. Nike, Reebok, or the like
action DVDs (Stallone, Szwartzenegger, Snatch type stuff)
Individually wrapped candy such as butterfingers, reeses, m&ms, snickers, or similar halloween style candy
College hats, any college will do since its football season and we have people here from EVERYWHERE.
pocket knives, specifically the multi tool type. (swiss army type knives)
running shoes, size 8-14. everyone here runs pretty often and shoes are in demand. Any brand will do.
mp3 players. Everyone has music on their computer, but not everyone has an mp3 player.
Headphones or earbuds
fitness magazines (runner's world or muscle mags), people magazine, and believe it or not, the nat'l enquirer is popular.
more magazines: smithsonian magazine, gun magazines, maxim, and anything with attractive females
rewritable CDs. We are not allowed to use thumb drives, so all data from a PC must be saved on a CDRW disk.
deodorant, shampoo, lotion, aftershave, febreeze (people go weeks without showers or laundry), and axe style body spray
