All that traveling and blank can be very boring almost lonely:o

So here is a thread under general discussion for those traveling all the time as there is no specific chat box for the flyers among us.

So meet new peeps in the same trade as you and Enjoy;)

I'm trying to figure the same thing too. I make xanax runs often, as it is the easiest way to build up my money, but the travel is boring, even though I have an airstrip. I was going to do it for a company but found I make more money on my own.

South Africa is the best for Xanax I think. I have the hunting 50 merit from there also
I fly for the merits mostly 50 trips to each destination is boring but so is anything that is repetitive in a text based game

I was struggling to pay rent for my castle before I started flower running. Now I have a PI with airstrip.
Can't wait until I saved enough for my own company.

It pays to make a fortnightly analysis of what is most rewarding at that time.
Currently Canada/China/Argentina/UK ( not in any particular order ).

I pay only slight attention to merits-per-se. With few exceptions, almost any destination shows up as hot at some time or other.

I keep a desk-agenda to tell me when it is time to log on again for landing/unloading/loading and take-off. Then I'm free to attend to other matters - such as work
Another 2 obvious must-haves are a price-list for drugs and a big suitcase.

A good rental PI for a flower-runner would contain the following upgrades:
-airstrip (75 M )
-hot tub (17K)
-sauna (12K)
-large pool (500K)
-open bar (9K)

With a decentish loadout of personnel, this brings the renting flower-runner a happy bar of about 3K. The extra 250 Happy costs no more than an investment of about 650K, staff costs ( for the tenant ) would be about 100-150K per day

To be sure, a small vailt would be handy ( and a PI-owning flower-runner would be wise to buy one soonish! ) but the land-lord may find it difficult to turn that 20M invstment into cashflow.

As a would-be tennant, you might be tempted by a full-option PI, but it makes more sense to hang on to your dollars and wait till you can buy your own.

Hello friends I am a somewhat experienced flower runner. If you ever need any advice please mail me and let me know. I am always happy to help, my most current bit I sold was 250 sets and made around 150mil profit

If anyone is looking to sell flower sets I buy each set for 585k I try to give you the best deal possible as I know how hard it is and how under valued we runners really are.

Happy Running My Friends!

Edit: Bump and Rate+ Can't believe I never thought of this idea lol

I can currently buy 31 flowers abroad at a time. Have i missed anything or is that the max?

I have saved so much time, thanks to the flower thread stating stock in countries.

Great idea. I've been running flowers for several months now and it's very boring. Wish the laptop would allow more Torn-related activities. But since the Trade chat box has been busted more often than not, this is a great way to earn money and some merits. Have 50 trips to each country except Dubai, Argentina, Japan and China, which I'm working on now.

I get 22 items per trip and am a bit jealous of MrSpadge's claim of 31. Right now I'm making about 3 trips per day to the countries listed above, mostly Argentina, but one of the other's when it runs out or Dubai when I'm going to sleep. I make about 4-6 million per day doing this and regularly post on the flowers thread.

31 per trip would bump me up to 7-9 million range. Nice.

took 15 minutes off cayman islands. Added 4 minutes to mexico. 4 minutes to canada I think. Added 5 minutes to switz. Took off 9 minutes from SA and added them 9 minutes to Dubai. Sure some1 will start a thread soon. Cant remember exactly where China was but I know it got the most time added.

Added some time to Japan as well-- 15 or 20 minutes? I may be overestimating it.

Why save up, unless your banck account already is maxed out? I prefer a steady cash stream.

Well this is my first week of flower runs ever lol

itl be more rewarding to get hundreds of millions as a few mil here and there i can get from mugging for example. itl make it all feel worth while ^^ 1 lump sum to be banked or spent not freviled away on silly things and the casino for expensive thrills ^^

Flowers sitting on your lap add zero in your lap.
Money in bank = 2%/week if you are below the cap.
