In Transit

I thought that the peregrinations of a package from /Tennessee to me might be interesting. Note that it took 5 days to go from Hixton (!) to Memphis. It sat around Jacksonville for a day and is still there as far as I can tell.

It's like hitting a ball on a pool table, bouncing from rail to rail, west east west again.
At least it had a good rest in Hixson.

Hixton is known for resting.

It will probably hit Sarasota today then be out for delivery tomorrow.

I had a package delivered from China recently. According to the tracking information, it languished in a depot near London for over a month - I assumed it was lost or stolen. Then the tracking information woke up again and my parcel took a quick trip to a small town in Poland, before returning again to the UK and so to me. The trip to Poland and back only took about three days, and must have been a refreshing change for my parcel after its dreary sojourn in a London warehouse.

Right now I'm waiting anxiously for another parcel from China. According to the tracking data, it was handed over to the airline (the data specifically says airline not ship) on 6th October, and since then has apparently vanished off the face of the earth.

I've never been to Poland, what a wonderful diversion for your package, but the thought of this new parcel
actually leaving earth that is exciting.

Last time I was in Venice I sent some postcards from the airport. The only available ones had some kind of tracking included (I didn't give a fuck, of course).

The irony is that most if not all (can't remember exactly) never arrived. :roll:

Not sure. I think that it may actually go on a truck to me now. Or to Sarasota.

Amazing.

Ahha!!! Sarasota. Getting closer.

SARASOTA FL DISTRIBUTION CENTER
Your item departed our USPS facility in SARASOTA FL DISTRIBUTION CENTER on November 2, 2019 at 6:19 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination.
A mere 2 hour stay and now off again.

Two possibilities ... one is that is is on a truck for delivery (unlikely) or that it is on the way to my PO in Myakka City. (likely). That would suggest delivery tomorrow.
