For some reason I keep thinking that everyone but me has their new DVD, so mine should be showing up in the mailbox tomorrow right? Now I find out there's something about water that tortoises don't like, and the really fast tortoises haven't even made it to Boston yet. When I thought that my DVD was coming from Canada, I figured that was great because Alaskans and Canadians are neighbors. I'm only now beginning to understand how desperately far away Toronto really is. Maybe I could get a special tortoise? With a carrot on a stick perhaps?

Your tortoise may need water wings, because to get from Canada to Alaska it obviously has to cross the Atlantic,  Pacific, and Indian Oceans (according to my new LL world map).

Right. Our tortoises have probably gone into hibernation for the winter. I just hope we have an early and warm spring.

Well, another day has gone bye-bye, no DVD nor a tortoise to be seen. I head for a 10 day trip to the north country (Maine) tomorrow. I'll look for any non-hibernating tortoises in Maine and maybe I can "borrow" the DVD he's carrying. In his cold sluggish state, he won't even know it's missing. If it's addressed to dark penguin I'll drop it off on the way to Conn on the 4th of Nov.

Well  after 16 days it finally arrived.  My son grabbed it out of my hand and is presently watching the section on Bangladesh.

Keep the faith. My copy shipped on October 11 just arrived in today's mail.  Just about when it has historicaly arrived on my doorstep [too big to fit in my mailbox].

Yes I know, those of us on the East Coast always moan and groan about the snail like pace and the fact that the DVDs are shipped East to West as opposed to North to South but that just adds to the anticipation and the ultimate enjoyment.

I have learned over the years that it is just not worth the effort to get too upset about something like this. It is not like they lost a $7,000 camera or lens, just a DVD and I know that if it is lost, then fulfilment will promptly send me a new disc.

So, when things settle down here, I will prop my feet up on the coffee table, after inserting the disc in the DVD player, lean back on the couch and hit "play" and just enjoy two + hours of commercial free Michael and friends.    

Thank you

Mine was shipped on the 10th of October (according to the email.) Still not here (tomorrow will be three weeks.)

Will the "digital revolution" be over before issue 15 arrives in Massachusetts? Tune in next decade and find out.

The race is now on! Yesterday I ordered the Death Valley DVD from Steve Kossack and today I got the email that it has shipped (three weeks to the day after my LLVJ #15 shipped.)

My DeLorme map program says that the distance from Toronto to Boston is about 540 miles and from Arizona to Boston is about 2700 miles.

Which will arrive first???

The LLVJ has one fifth the distance to travel and a three-week head start. I'll let you all know who wins.

It's here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mail just arrived, with a DVD. And it's the LLVJ #15!    

Three weeks to the day since the shipping announcement.

How about you, Blasr? Got yours yet, or did I beat you this time? And Bob McCarthy? How's the water torture?

See, patience is its own virtue and the reward at the end of the trail is well worth it. While I haven't watched mine as yet, I am waiting till the weekend when I have the time to really enjoy it, I know I am going to like it just like all that came before.

The one sure thing, once those puppys hit the east coast, then the trip north is just a day away.

Congratulations, Blas! But I hope you won't be canceling your trip to Bosque just to stay home and watch the DVD.    

By the way: My Death Valley DVD from Steve Kossack arrived today, also by USPS. So it takes the USPS 3 days to ship one DVD 2700 miles from Arizona to Boston, and 21 days to ship an LLVJ DVD 540 miles from Toronto to Boston.

I suspect that the U.S. Customs inspectors at the Canadian border just have too big a backlog. Each day new items get dumped onto the top of their pile, and each day they slowly work their way down from the top of the same pile (Last In -- First Out.) Or maybe they're having so much fun looking for packages that might contain illegally imported Bayer aspirin that they can't be bothered sending DVDs onward.
