    Thanks for the tip. My package from Wildman was re-routed from UPS to the local USPS office for final delivery. Can MyChoice handle that?

    My mailman does a good job of noting when packages are at the door, covering them with the welcome mat, or putting them in the garage if possible.

    Whoo-Hoo! Got my shipping notice today. :) Now I gotta keep an eye out for it, so it doesn't disappear off the front porch. Thank you again to Wildman for making this happen!

    Staring down a Gizmo sitting here now, actually it showed up Friday, I can't wait to get assembling this one. But it's down a bit in the build pile. Need to finish a couple others first.

    My poor Wife. I kinda told her I'd like another 24/40 and 24/60 case for Christmas and I have a strong feeling she ordered them. But since she's not used to rocketry stuff I think she's starting to panic without tracking info. So I apologize if you've received any hectic e-mails asking about an order with those cases in it. I did tell her to let you know it was for Christmas if she ordered. But it was also AFTER the sale ended.

    Yep. That's called SurePost. The app allows you to state you do not want USPS to handle the delivery but I think there's a small fee involved (3.99?).

    Definitely your patience will be rewarded.
    Basically, it mostly depends on what propellant you ordered... The Wildman workshop was covered in just-arrived boxes of AT propellant, but even those boxes were missing certain motors that AT hasn't sent yet (but will be on the way shortly). 6" nosecones are on their way, etc.
    I got there early this morning, and they'd already been up and working on coming orders for a couple hours. My order was a kit with the bits and pieces, no propellant, so an easy one to complete and box up.
    Things are in motion... I saw some really nice CF tubes that had just arrived. Also saw a giant stack of boxes, all RocketPoxy, that had only recently arrived. It's amazing the quantity of stuff they're moving through the workshop!

    Still no dice on my end but I had a bunch of random stuff. AT hardware and 29mm reloads, rocketpoxy, rando build stuff, parachute, etc.

    Same here - lots of random stuff between Wednesday and Saturday sales. I'm in no rush and told wildman the same, so am 100% happy to wait on my things... great sale as always!

    We have had some of the hardware show up and shipped a bunch of stuff out over the last coupler days.
    If you had anything with a 29 aft closure in it that hasn't gone yet AT is still waiting for those(we are hoping by New year).
    a bunch more 75+98 stuff is needed along with misc others.
    5"and 6" cones second wave is on the way. we are waiting on the high heat cones those should be next week .
    CTI should start shipping out early next week.

    The high heat cone is made with 200 C degree resin for those high Mach flights. The will now come standard with our expedition series of kits.

    My order arrived about 6pm last night. I ordered motors only, and was surprised to get them this fast. Now, I just have to find time to go launch them. Thanks again, Tim and Jackie! :)

    Got a little antsy waiting for some stuff, so I gave Wildman a call. Jackie found the motors we needed, completed our order and shipped it out in a day! Tracking data indicates it will be here in plenty of time for the next launch. Thanks Jackie!

    Finished building my WM BS gift to myself today...
    12lbs fully loaded...
    ...
    And I was going to post a pic, but apparently I don't have permission?... Ugh.
    Drago 4XL. Looks fantastic. Now the long wait for weather good enough to paint.

    Got my shipping notice. Guessing I need to be home to sign for it since it is a hazmat order. Probably need to take part of the day off work.

    I got my shipping notice yesterday. There's a Punisher 4, a Blackhawk 75 and an AT 75mm hardware set in there. Too bad my vacation ends on Tuesday. :facepalm:

    I visited Santa's, I mean Wildman's, workshop today and left a lot poorer then when I arrived. Also picked up everything from my dad's order except his N2220DM and the corresponding hardware.

    I do, sir! Mine is going to be chess themed. Finally figured I'd combine my two passions... Custom decals from StickerShock.
    We should... Drag race!!!

    Got my stuff yesterday. Or maybe the day before, these vacation days run together. Either way, I know have 38mm hardware for my Scorpion. Now if only CTI would start shipping reloads...

    no worries on getting CTI. There's about a 20% chance AMW will make the next launch they say they're coming to. :/

    Got a shipping notification on Friday, and I hope its my Black Saturday order, since I placed another order before christmas for a few more parts. The sale order has the last part I need to finish my L1 project!
