Well, it’s been almost a month since we started Desert Bus 5, and thanks to our wonderful new shipping system and incredibly dedicated volunteers, many people already have their prizes. However, delays are inevitable, especially with postage this time of year, so if you don’t have your stuff yet, don’t panic.

Q: I don’t have my Fangamer Desert Bus 5 Shirt yet.

A: Fangamer has shipped all the shirts. If they haven’t yet arrived they will soon. If you live outside of the North America, shipping may be slower.

Q: My giveaway/silent/live auction item has not arrived yet.

A: We have shipped almost everything, but we’re still waiting for shipping information for a couple of items. Please check the email you used to sign up for a donor account with and make sure our emails aren’t going into your spam filter. If you do wish to inquire about your items, email:

  • prize at desertbus dot org AND cc kathleen at loadingreadyrun dot com
  • include your name, address and a detailed description of what you won and the prize ID number if you know it.

Please note that if you live in the UK or Australia, it’s likely larger items will not arrive until January.

Q: I haven’t received my Desert Bus 5 poster yet.

A: That’s because we literally bought ALL the poster tubes our supplier had in stock and we still needed more, so we’re still waiting for a shipment. The posters will be sent out as soon as the mailing tubes arrive. Expect delivery early January for Canadian/American addresses, later for international.

Happy Holidays!

  3. I don’t know if you will find it practical or not, but I have a pro-tip for shipping posters without tubes.

    get some cardboard that is suitable to ship and the same width as the poster.
    make two folds in the cardboard to create three sections
    fold the cardboard into a triangle, slide in the poster, tape the cardboard and mail

    Here’s a crude visual of what i’m talking about if I lost you..

    It’s how ships their posters!

  5. Got my T-shirt today so anyone else in the UK should get theirs soon!

    Also the Bus papercraft goodiebag was an unexpected suprise.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  6. orangey: That’s basically a Fed-Ex tube. 😀

    I got my buttons, which you guys retweeted. I got my FanGamer shirt a few days later. I was wondering about the poster. I also ordered a bunch of stuff with it. Since I know the poster needs to be shipped separately, I was wondering if you could ship the rest of my stuff earlier, separately?

  7. Irony of ironies: I get my DB5 poster 2 days ago, after I post that message. The rest of my order, not so much.

  8. Got my poster and wanted to thank you all, it looks great. It will go well with my Brutal Legend posters. It was an excellent run, both in terms of fun had watching and the cash you raised. Congrats to everyone!

  9. Still waiting for my Atari pack. My experience from earlier Desert Bus runs tells me that it should arrive any day now though. :) Looking forward to it! Once again, thank you for another great Desert Bus! 😀
