Still snail-less.

It's getting late. It's said : Status: Out for Delivery since 10:45am

I believe the critters will still be fine if we get them today or tomorrow.
Colder weather vs HOT gives us better chances.

And I know that I've had snails survive over 3 days in cool storage (missed a work shipment over holiday!).

Anyway, if anything bad happens John is wicked cool and lives up to his guarantees.


Text me if you need anything.

Ok, it's 8:13pm

Not sure if it is coming tonight.

If it does come tonight:
I will text you all.
I will do a general smell and vision check of the bags to check for obvious issues.
I will float the bags in room temp SW.

Wait for you to come by if you can still make it.

If it comes Friday...
Well, I am leaving at 5pm.
I would like it if everyone can pick up as early as possible.
I think most people wanted to pick up between 6-1am. I wont be available during that time tomorrow.

So, I'm hoping there is a way to arrive much much earlier.
text.

Pretty sure i texted everyone.

Tracker still says 'out for delivery' since 10:45am.

But I have given up on it coming tonight.
I'll be on the look out for it tomorrow.

I will update the thread periodically, but will text when it comes.


What I do know:
I've already changed my going out of town plans for tomorrow .
However, I will not be available 5pm-11pm

As originally planned, I will do a general inspection of each bag for water coloration, scent, etc.
I will float the bags.


If you know you may need to rearrange pick up then please post in this thread to see if another GB member can help out.


ps calling USPS was absolutely no help.

Anyone in BK or downtown/midtown able to pickup tomorrow? I won't be out of work before 5.

Tuni, are you available after 11pm if people can't make it before 5??

Don't worry. I'll give everyone an individual update with a picture of their order.

I just hope the more sensitive critters make it.

Needless death otherwise.

Just for record keeping:
I finally got through USPS headquarters and they are as baffled as I am.

Said that it should have been delivered, and that I didn't even need to be there for them to just leave it as per usual.

Said system hasn't been updated with a reason for why the driver did not deliver it, which is usually what they should do during every shift.

He did say that it is out for delivery again and that I should call back if it doesn't arrive by 3pm.

Also, I have tried calling the 'local' usps office that handles my delivery and all of their numbers given by the USPS headquarters and online are 'busy'.

It's on the truck right now.

I also put a big sign in the front window telling them to ring the bell or to just leave it.
A gentle reminder that there are living things in the box that could die.

Record keeping:

I flagged down a USPS truck near my block. But it didn't have the package. He suggested I go check the local office.
Drove to the local USPS office.
They did not have the package.
They said it was out on a truck for delivery.
Said there can be multiple trucks....
said that it has all day to be delivered.

If it does come today then pick up is after 11pm.
or Saturday before 11am and after 5pm.

I am sure no one, let alone myself, wanted such an experience.

If critters perish, John is a stand up guy.

Sad to hear. Pretty sure a lot if not all are dead.
Sorry Will that you have been home all day and now running around trying to find the package. The usps are so unreliable at times.
Thanks for keeping us posted

So guys, long long long story short. Looks like there will be no delivery today.

Another USPS truck was out there at 5pm. Same guy I saw this morning. Box still not on his truck.

I wrote John an update around 1pm today. So he is aware.

I definitely had more hopes for this.
Sorry guys.
