"Kiwi Train" --- SOLD
Well I finally ordered a new plein air box and it was kind of funny how I chose which kind to get in the end (see these 2 posts & comments for this discussion). I had decided on an EasyL but when, after 3 days of calling and leaving messages, I couldn't get in touch with them, I decided to try my luck with Open Box M. They gave me wonderful service and agreed to sell me just the inside portion of the box (just the panel holder and palette), which is exactly what I wanted. They said if anything in my box ever fails they will pay for me to ship it back to them, and fix it for no charge. And all their boxes are made here in America, where a lot of their competitors' boxes are outsourced to other countries. I am thrilled with the service I got. I will be receiving my box in a couple of weeks and will take it to Germany to test out. Apparently there's an internet cafe near where we'll be staying so I hope to post while I'm there. And in case you'd like to know sort of what it'll look like where I'm going, here are some photos from the Black Forest in Germany. Cool, huh?
