      The nuts and I are in Charleston, West, by God, Virginia. Six of them will easily fit in a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate box which goes anywhere for $8.95. You might be able to find them locally, but with belly bombers and Skyline, if the weather were more accomodation a road trip could happen...
