    Not-So-FAQ's: Shipping from the Rally on Sunday?

    I read the FAQ and answer about shipping to the rally, including the note that there will be UPS shipping available for return gear.

    Not-so-FAQ #1 - Will the return shipping service be available on Sunday? Forum searches on the subject for previous rallies indicated Sunday shipping might not be possible. I'll be dry-camping (motel) the following week and would like to ship my camping gear home.

    Not-so-FAQ #2 - Will UPS offer a packaging service?

    Ain't no big deal if the answer to either question is negative. For #1 I've located a UPS store at my next overnight, and for #2 I can get packaging from the UPS store in Johnson City (near to Wally World).

    Sunday shipping has been available since 2004. Maybe even before that, but, 2004 was the first year we used the service. Have used it every year since then too.

    If you are shipping you are carrying too much crap. ..just my opinion.

    It all went crazy when we decided we had to clear out Kevin's back seat so he could carry a case of wine home!

    Chuck and Vance, thanks for the information -it will help in planning.

    As for YOU, Mr. parkec, you master of minimalism, I'll have you know I can pack all my "crap" in ONE bag. Of course, I ain't saying how big that bag is...
