I think it'd be best to keep a tally on what states you ship to and how long it takes. Seems certain states have a backwards way of expediting packages.. like sending it to a sorting facility 2 states away. Some things are simply not meant to be.. but some things are!!! Like a 24 hr. Ram delivery

I had plants take over a week to get to Tenn before ,but they arrived all good!
It does suck having to wait and worry.

I think keeping track of time to destination is handy also.
This is why I posted my last shipment.
Tracking says package has arrived to the front door of destination.
I hope it is not sitting in the sun for long (in Texas)!

CB think you can almost guarantee that shipping to my area will take more than 2 days. I don't think they can't get things figured out at the main facility by me. Every single shipment I have sent or received from the East Coast has been delayed at least a day sometimes 2.

They say it got to Ill at 330 am this day?
I'm scared to check if the shipment that started this post is 'still on route to destination'!
I hope they get it to when they say but I pack them for the long haul.
I told Hunter (I think) that they are good for 5-7 days in the box IMO.
Hope fully I won't find out.
Hope they get to you today.

Yea, it took the Unreliable Slow Package Service 5 days to deliver my rams (3 days in the tracking without an update from the USPS). Thankfully, you package them to arrive alive. Mine looked good as soon as I opened the box. They are my favorite fish!

What I don't understand about the USPS is sometimes Priority Mail is 2 days to me, the longest has been 14 days for a Priority Mail shipment to me.

I was fortunate and got mine in 2 days. USPS hasn't been terrible for me, though I wish I got more fish from other mail providers.
