Oh good grief.

In Transit to Next Facility
Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered to its final destination. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

So.... my guess is as good as their's. LOL

I haven't asked for my tracking number, but I am suffering enough vicariously through you, Mikey... 🤔 :angiefavorite:

Unlikely. Usually when it leaves Shreveport it'll go straight to Leesville and then come on in; sometimes it'll go through Alexandria first.
If it left Shreveport headed in the right direction then it should be in tomorrow.

Ok scratch that...... 🧐 For my second guess I think @Tobor is my secret Santa.
Nope, not me. Sorry. But I can confirm my recipient has opened his gift and posted his findings.

I opened my gift this evening.

When I posted the box in our fb group, our club president said it was full of pretzels.

This doesn't look like a pretzel to me.

It looks like a BT-50 AMRAAM AIM 120 from Mach1 Rocketry. this will be my first fiberglass rocket and oh boy, will I have questions.

To whomever my Secret Santa is, thank you very much. This is moving to the top of the build pile right after I finish my Mega Initiator and Super Neon XL.

I had no idea who my Secret Santa was and might have guessed Scott since he finally opened his gift. A closer inspection of the invoice reveals an email address, so from one Santa to another, I say thanks UPscaler!!! This 54mm casing was the best gift on my list and I truly feel like a kid on Christmas... :christmastree: :goodjob:

I'm sure your Secret Santa says you're very welcome and I'm, I mean, he's probably really glad to find out that this was a good choice. ;)

In my mailbox yesterday was a white bubble mailer. Got kinda excited because, as many of you know, that is the preferred shipping method of Eggtimer. Only this time it wasn't Eggtimer, was something for the near-wife.
But my gift is at a local PO, so it should be in the mailbox by the time I get home.

This takes the secret out of it but had to post this... it just so happened that I ordered from the same place that my santa ordered from (exact same product - never owned one before)... when i got a copy of my invoice it had a message on it from the manufacture. (Sorry for the sideways picture)

I've got to give a massive thanks to n3tjm for keeping this tradition going and letting me be included since shipping for my santa's to the UK is a pain.

:eggnog:
I second that Thank You

Would you believe it is just as cheap to have it shipped to the UK as it is to buy from someone based in the UK, what with conversion fees, price increases and what not. . . Or so I'm told. 😉

It took 13 days to get there. 6 of those days were spent in L.A.

@Glasspack
Yeah it should be at the house when I get there. I may know where it is coming from but still don't know what it is. Can hardly wait! Merry CIJ to you too!

Dang it! I tried to get them to play the cover-up game but it doesn't always go too well.

Glad you like it! Sorry it arrived late.

When a sender gives no hints or never says anything at all, its just a blind guessing game. LAME!

All I've got to go on is IF someone posted when they ordered, or was already revealed, and that leaves my list at:
@markschnell , @Karl , @Tobor , @rc dude , and @BruceS

That’s what I’m going on, too. 4 left, but I don’t have my list in front of me to guess right now.

And now I realize I didn’t give any hints, either. But I didn’t know I was supposed to. This was my first time! I thought I was supposed to keep quiet. Now I think maybe I should give a hint. Or maybe not? I don’t know, I’m back and forth on it. One or the other. It’s a binary thought process. I should make up my mind....No, I’m not going to give a hint. Sorry, guy. You’ll have to figure it out on your own.
