I once had a book I had ordered addressed to to Ed Fowler, Willow Bow Ranch, PO Box 1519, Riverton Wyo. Some how it made it to Vatican City and roamed around for a couple of months, then here she came. A little tattered from the trip, but the book seemed somehow better. I would bet it drove the poor folks in the Vatican City Post office nuts for a while.
St Louis seems to be the toughest place to get packages through.
Letters from Washington take weeks, for some reason that is the tough way. I quit ordering books from that state and Calif just for that reason.
But with tracking they move right along.?
