I, for one would be very willing to take a chance on one or two tubes  
and see if there is any life left in them, but sadly I live in Va.

I have e-mailed a friend in Boulder to see if he ever heads out in  
your direction but I don't think he does very often.

Please keep me in mind if you uncover a way to address the shipping  
issue or if another steps up to buy the lot, as I would be willing to  
contact them as well.
