Just had to share first order ever from

Tracking online is GREAT - but oh what a circuitous route this package is taking!

Shipped via Fedex Cross Border it went from Bethlehem Pennsylvania to Easton PA to North Carolina to Belle Isle, Fl to Orlando Fl to St. Petersburg Fl to Pinellas Park Fl to Tampa Fl ...then NW from Florida to Memphis TN, to Carolina PR and then should be enroute soon to C'sted VI.

Say I used to live in Bethlehem and Easton .

I just received a UPS. The tracking said it arrived on STX on Tues. around noon. Tues night I get an alert that it missed the plane in PR and it's still there. Huh? Called UPS and they said a lot of the tracking updates are just system generated , not from actual package scans. So you really can't tell exactly what is going on with their tracking updates.

Scubadoo too funny you lived in Bethlehem and Easton!

Yeah I've tracked packages online that say they were delivered on a particular day, but then weren't delivered until a day or two later. So that makes sense that the updates are system generated.
