I got $800 from a friend, I did not ask, a friend just sent it to Me, and I thanked this person.

Well I'm currently at 26,200 points, and until I get some more bottles, that's where I'll be at, I cleaned out both Food4Less and Walmart of any known 250 point bags, I did buy some 200's of course, but then most of My shopping bags that I had with Me were being used, all but one, I would have bought 2 more Diet MD, but I could not reach those 2 bottles, and I'm 6'1" tall.

Yeah I could have, but I need to do some work on My car, like replace a serpentine belt, replace a 3rd brake light bulb that I can't reach, and install 4 new tires.

Now after some accounting, I need to go get another 27-2L D/MD bottles, then I will have 36,900 points, I should then get an Xbox One X Console, and before Thanksgiving too, I won't be buying anymore bags. And I'm currently at 26,600 points.

The TV?

Without the box, yes, it could, but local pickup was not an option from whom I bought the tv from, shipping is the only option given.

By themselves, yes, I've had 17 in there before, so even 27 or 29 is not a stretch, and an extra 2 bags would also fit.

Ok as I cool off from My trip to Barstow CA, I went and bought 3 bags, and 31 2L bottles of Mountain Dew, both Diet and Regular, all with White caps, Stater Bros was out, someone else beat Me there, Vons had 5(not anymore), and 26 were at Food4Less(cleaned out), I now have enough for about 37,000 to 38,000 points, anyone who is helping only needs to contribute what they currently have, after that it does not matter, as I should have enough, as Victory is within My reach now.

And yes all 3 bags, and 31 bottles, plus a shopping bag full of shopping bags fit snugly in My car trunk, it only took Me 3 trips to empty the car trunk, My left foot was bothering Me yesterday, I expect the same for tonight, maybe, but that will pass.

And yes, I'm exhausted now.

I always wondered if contests of this sort really increased product sales... Well, mission accomplished, apparently. Enthusiasm of this sort makes me wish I had stock in PepsiCo.

There was a carton of Mountain Dew cans in our refrigerator and I ripped apart the box looking for a code for you, but I must have purchased the carton before the contest started. There were no magic numbers there.

Vic, maybe you could invite all your neighbors over for a party and maybe serve some kind of punch made from all that soda?

Anyway, hope you win.

It's not a contest or a raffle, it's an auction, 50 Xbox One X Consoles and games(Forza Motorsport 7(car racing), or Middle Earth: Shadow of War(aka: part of the Lord of the Rings saga) or a years worth of Game Pass(I don't know what Game Pass is, and I don't want that), these 50 are given away to the highest 50 bidders per day, every day until Jan 12th 2018.

Me, I want the one that that has the game: Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Forza Motorsport 7 to Me is just another variation on a game that has been around since Pole Position back around about the 1970's debuted...


And thanks Angela, some are marked on the outside, and some aren't, all the 2L Diet bottles are not marked on the label, yet on the Regular MD the label is clearly marked, both have White Caps in common, colored caps are worthless(Red, Black, Light Green, or Dark Green), sigh.

After this is over I don't think I'll ever buy so much soda, sure 4 or 5 Diet MD if they are on sale, otherwise forget it, these bottles are heavy, and I barely lifted Twelve 2L bottles with My good left arm.

I hope that everyone participating in this auction realizes that once a person breaks the seal on those containers of Mountain Dew, they should be kept in the refrigerator until they can be enjoyed.

Sugar solution = bacteria invitation

Refrigeration slows this down quite a bit.

Yeah, totally true, and if one can't get to the sugar filled drinks in time, may as well toss them, and chips soon enough get stale once opened.

Squeezing all the air out of bottle adds a little more shelf life.

From what I've read opened a refrigerated bottle has a 2-5 day life, after that artificial sweeteners start to decay, and sugary/corn syrup drinks are a prime way for bacterial to grow, so I may end up dumping a lot of it, giving it away, well not many know Me here, and the ones that do might not be interested.

Sugar is a preservative, if used correctly and doesn't attract water.
Think crystallized ginger.
