    I think things are sitting around in the post office more these days before actually being sent out. I've noticed it too.

    I sent a check to MIA on a Saturday and got an email from him that he received it the following Monday. That was from Virginia to Wisconsin. That was pretty remarkable considering it was over a weekend.

    I had a barrel shipped Tuesday from Texas so I'll be interested to see when it shows up.

    The Postal Service has recently announced that due to the high cost of fuel that they will no longer deliver to an address unless they have enough mail to that area to make it profitable to do so ... I suggest you stop sending mail to places that are to small to justify a timely delivery due to lack of mail ... not your fault and not there fault either ... blame the price of gas.

    Got the barrel from Texas today Priority Mail. Two days from Houston to Virginia is excellent service and better than UPS Ground or FedX ground.

    Newbus you are on drugs if you even believe that BS.
    They deliver if its 1 letter or 101 letters, city or rural.


    I have had no issues with my shipments with Priority mail to my online customers. Theve always recieved them within 4 days max and I ship east & west coast.

    walrus,
    RM is held to a different stream than regular mail. Its hand delivered to each station along the way in a special bag with a high security lock and seal, they check the tag, count the mail, re seal it and on it goes until it reaches the final destination, then the customer has to be home to sign for it and must have an ID to insure its the right person, if not its taken back to the PO & held. As the Highest priority mail, its as you stated is accounted for at every PO and clerk, carrier and a tad slower, but accounted for at every step.
