I bought two orphan barrels recently. One traveled from eastern PA to my house, 558 miles by road. Second one traveled from central Texas to my house, 1223 miles by road. First one took 17 days and traveled 1211 miles by USPS system to get here. Second one took nine days and traveled 1348 miles to get here. From this I now understand I am far better off buying stuff twice the distance from me as it will get here in half the time. USPS is one very messed up system with very limited tracking on many items and delivery time which can be measured in weeks, instead of days. In both cases the estimated shipment time was five days. And I have had nearly the same results with UPS and Fedex. So it is hurry up and ship, then wait, wait, wait.
