Just wanted to thank all of you who took the time to respond to my question about the UPS shipping tactics for light weight - large container items. I got tied up and didn't get back to you when the thread was current. Your replies sure demonstrated what happens to people such as me who do not stay current on methods of shipping. Looks as if I could have gone any other route and it would have been cheaper. But then, it is hard to beat dropping off the package at UPS at 1730 on Wednesday in Danville, Va., shipping it by common ground, and having it delivered in Atlanta around 1200 that Friday.
