Do hope he's okay and that he makes amends soon. I did get some opae from him back in November, though.
Really good heat packs and insulation are necessary when shipping these guys in the cold weather. Cookymonster's opae source is a member of our forum, 100 of mine came directly from him via Hawaii.
I believe I got some Opaes from the same source in Hawaii as you and they were well packed with insulation/heat pack but several of them didn't survive the trip while all of Liam's did with no insulation or heat pack, go figure. I believe since I'm in the midwest that the extra time in transit made a difference.
