If I can't do the meet in the middle with Joshua (which is still if
nobody else more local can save these).... then this may be a
possibility, but we would need a volunteer (like Joshua) that could
pick them up locally and ship them.
Any ideas on weight of the two boxes ? FedEx Ground is actually
quite affordable to ship stuff with (and I've not yet (know on
wood) had an item damaged by them in transit.... and I can't say
the same for UPS (United Package Slammers)).
Given my new schedule, if shipping were an affordable option
(especially with someone like Steve being interested in one) then
this may or may not be a better option.
