This is likely not to work, and here's why:

Any reasonable shipping company will elect to place the crate on an international cargo plane. Firstly, TSA is known to scan packages and do random checks. If you somehow make it past that stage and the plane takes off, the cargo hold is not pressurized to my knowledge. In other words, you'll freeze to death.

Your best option is really to buy a cheap flight to a country in Europe (I've found flights as cheap as a few hundred dollars, one way) and take it from there. Best of luck!

I thought that by mailing yourself you mean mailing a box that you expect to receive in Europe, and I wondered why you can't do it yourself.

Hey buddy, hate to tell you,
You're very stupid.

Looking to mail myself to Europe. Need help making a crate and need someone to take it in and mail it.
some things are better left off as ideas

you can get direct flights to Stockholm, Barcelona, Paris; fuckload of places for far under a grand

check out WOWAIR they have layovers in Reykjavik connecting to the aforementioned and more

the only place they rip you is like 50 or 60 dollar baggage fees

he could really do it and has been done by a youtuber
nowhere in this video is there even the smallest amount of proof that this person actually went from the UK to USA. i skimmed a few of the uploaders other videos and big shock, none of them provide any proof of this person doing what they claimed to do. "it has been done by a youtuber" is some pretty flimsy ground to stand on imo.

i cant believe it actually has to be said but dont try to mail yerself to europe in a fucking box. yer not in a bugs bunny cartoon.

I dunno if this could still work. I wonder if perhaps having a Coffin, and shipping yourself as a Corpse might actually be a good idea!?!
I would HIGHLY suggest you put the insulation lining inside of it, and make yourself some Break-Away paneling, and some method of Urine Collection that would neither stink, nor leak!
Also: you really do want some concealed CCD-Camera's built flush into the outer surface of that thing, and some small, like: Smart-Phone small method of viewing their feed's.
Personally, I think at this point, it might actually be better just to buy a plane-ticket!
Oh, and just for safety, have your Passport ready, and make sure it's got the Visa of where you're trying to goto, and... EXIT-VISA from where you're trying to escape from!
Good luck!

I just wanted to put it out there that it is very possible. I’ve already mailed myself to Canada and to Alaska. Once from L. A. and once from Philadelphia. And yes the plane is pressurized and totally safe. I’ve never had a problem with dogs or sniffers or anything like that. The only thing I’m a little skeptic about on this one is customs going overseas. If there is anyone serious about helping let me know or anyone who has positive feedback or advice. Please no stupid negative opinions.

And I don’t believe in informing the government of exactly where I am at all times so that’s why I do things this way. I like to remain invisible.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
