I agree. I have done exactly that through the Series 2 club forum - folks were happy to ship things to me because they liked the photos I posted of our IIA in the desert. Every once in a while someone wants something from the US so I pay it forward (or backwards, I've lost track). I get things sent via Royal Mail from the UK as fast as I get things UPS ground from Vermont.You are going to need contacts around the world anyway, so now would have been the perfect time to establish a relationship with someone in the UK to purchase it and then ship it on to you. Usually you can return the favor at some point for equally stupid reasons.
