Rams out to Omaha Nebraska!(thinking of the counting crows Omaha)...
Fingers crossed as usual.
This should be the last shipment of year for me unless someone wants to assume the risk...
I have silently guaranteed my fish and arrival,but after this shipment it is 'up in the air ' till Jan 2016!
Of course whenever Dale wants his replacements they will be shipped 'on me'.

Thank you all for your help and support!

Because of health issues the majority of my shopping is done online. I've had issues with both USPS and UPS but even with delays success of live arrivals is very much affected by the shipper/seller. Packaging, insulation, heat or cold packs all make a huge difference.

^^This is why I ship with COMPETANCE andCONFIDENCE!!!!^^

I put every effort I feel necessary to ship above industry standard and (knock on wood) when CleverBs gets his rams I will be 100% live arrival for the whole season with exception to the original shipment to Poppa that started this thread.
Those did not arrive dead, they just NEVER ARRIVED!
The USPS sent the box top back to me for those who didn't start in the beginning....

This is all an exercise is letting go of total control which is ....a little difficult for an old fish breeder I know of!

Has anyone ever intercepted a package???
My fish from Ohio are in Albany now ,but still scheduled for delivery tomorrow.
Albany is only 30 minutes one way from me!
Since the package is tracked the site said I am eligible to intercept but I don't want to screw them up more then they already do for themselves!
You have to put in an email request and afraid that could take longer then just waiting???
