As you know, I shipped Henry's robot suit off to him on Tuesday, October 9th. It was mailed from the post office in Carthage, NC. I like to do the Click-n-Ship thing via the USPS website. Not only do you save a bit by printing out your own label, you don't have to wait in line at the post office..... AND you get free tracking!
Neither my hometown or Carthage is indicated on this map... but Southern Pines is. I'm a 5-minute drive from Southern Pines... so I underlined it in purple for your viewing convenience!
Henry lives with his parents and older brothers in Wilmington, NC.... on the coast. I've underlined that in green.
Wednesday morning, I checked online and found that the package had arrived in Fayetteville at the sorting facility at 6:34pm Tuesday. Not bad... Henry should have the robot suit Wednesday evening!
I checked tracking again Wednesday night... and there was no update.... like "out on delivery" or "delivered".... puzzling.
Well, Thursday morning, I checked.... and guess where the package was???
Yes! The package was in Asheville, NC.... four hours west of here and five hours west of Fayetteville! *lol*
By Thursday evening, the package had left the facility in Asheville.... en route to Wilmington!
Are we having fun yet? *lol* Henry's robot suit is certainly going to be well traveled!
I also like the "snipping tool" on my computer so I can show you the actual info obtained from the USPS site. Please note that "expected delivery" was October 10, 2012.
It's not a big deal.... the robot suit will be there in plenty of time for Halloween. I just love me some online fun!
