When one departs limbo, but doesn't arrive anywhere, what would you call that? Limbo limbo? Or something else..?

Well,
even the USPS website has stopped tracking the shipment. No update since 01.02.21. That just might be an omen.... :(

Do they always track over the weekend? If it's not priority mail it may have just been ignored since it wasn't a business day.

Parcels/leters within the USPS network move along 24/7. If an item's tracking number gets scanned anywhere within the system, the USPS website will report it. And even when something gets lost, the system still reports some time stamped verbiage akin to "Lost but still moving". The tracking number's last time stamp is January 02, 2021.

I removed a few things, I added a few things, it is packed up and on it's way to @jqavins - here's what I pulled out in case anyone is interested... There were several other items I found very interesting, but ultimately elected to leave them in... Travel on, Travelin' Box O' Parts..!
