I'm usually pretty satisfied with parcel post, you live on an island in the middle of the pacific.

That's only a week. Sometimes it can up to 2 weeks depending on where you are and depending on the weather. A week or so is normal across the contiguous 48 states. During Christmas, it can be over 2 weeks, especially if there is snow.

Is there a single California scan or are there several? I assume you got tracking for it?

The USPS is in hemorrhaging multiple millions of Dollars annual deficits . So they are running around chasing their asses trying to come up with ways to cut costs,save some money. one of the ways they are attempting to do this is by closing some post offices. Not a bad idea on the face of it.

Now for the rest of the Story. Town down the way Pop. about 60,000 Had two Post offices so they closed one. Well , of those two post offices one was operating in the black,one in the red,one was union the other nonunion or at least had no union workers. Care to take a guess which one was operating in the black and which one they closed.

Some sellers on Ebay also use that method as well. it takes about 2 months or so for something to get here to hawaii.
