Welcome to the Round Robin Traveling PC Swap Series. This is Week 169.

I’m happy to announce that @Carrii has officially passed this swap to me and I’m excited to keep it going.

The goal is to send out postcards, and eventually have them come back to you. Cards are sender’s choice and can be any type of 4x6 postcard, including homemade or ad cards, as long as they’re sturdy enough to mail, and fit USPS guidelines.

If this is your first round: Select a postcard, add a Forever Stamp and address the card to yourself. At the top of the message section, write the Swap Name & Number, your Swap-bot Username and the date. You will then send it to your partner in an envelope. Include a note so it’s obvious who gets credit for the swap and can rate promptly. Be sure to mark the swap as “Sent” on the swap page.

When you receive a swap, add your Username, City, State, Date, Outside Temp, and a very short note or quote to the message side of the card, then save it to send in the next round. Be sure to include the little note - it is an official part of the swap. Seeing all the places the card travels is cool, but it’s even nicer to read the messages added along the way.

The cards you receive one week will be passed along in the next week. If you haven’t received a swap from the last round, just start new cards for the current week, and when the previous swap arrives, you can send them in the next round. Please mail by the deadline of the swap round, even if you have to do all new starter cards!

When a postcard is nearly full, add your info on the message side, and drop it in the mail to be sent naked (no envelope) to whoever's name is on the address side.

To have the most cards circulating, plan to participate every week. If that’s too quick for you, aim for every other week. It’s fun to have multiple cards traveling all over the country, and coming back to you quickly. With multiple partners and fast rounds, they are more likely to return full and in good condition.

If you no longer wish to participate but you have cards from previous rounds, please send them to me, and I’ll get them back in rotation. Please do not send partially-filled cards home. PM for my address.

Check to see who’s signed the cards you’ve received, and try to not send to someone who has already signed.

About postage: You are responsible for adding stamps to your own starter cards. If you receive a new card with no stamp on it, you may notify the partner who sent it to you and give them the option of mailing you stamps to add to it. The original sender runs the risk of the card coming home postage due, or not at all. Also – please use Forever stamps to avoid a postage increase along the way. Again, the person starting the card is responsible for having the correct postage added.

If you have any questions or need help, please message me. I don’t always see notes posted in the comment section below.

Please consider joining the RRTPC Group.

Thanks for making this one of the best swaps on Swap-Bot!
