Yeah, mine left TX @ 7AM. I'm not holding my breath that it'll be here when I get home.
The items shipped by smart post have already made it to LA on their trip to Oregon. I guess it's a dead heat between FedEx and USPS working with FedEx. The part that makes me laugh with this, I can get a netflix movie in less than 3 days from Maine. For small, light items, a 41 cent stamp would do just fine (and arrive fairly quickly.) In fact if it was an option (at your own risk of loss, etc.) I'd take USPS for the small light items. I wouldn't fear them being picked up by my neighbors in my apartment complex as the mailbox is locked up.
