Mine periodically land in the Atlantic, but the "No Water-Damage" fairies must meet the truck at the beach, as they always arrive nice and dry!  I think the map is just to amuse us - some part of the program puts in the milage and it doesn't matter if it's over water, volcano, or Hogwarts!

yeah...the map thing is just an estimate...not really to be taken literally.

I would think most books going to Alaska would pass through Washington state? I am not sure why that would be the wrong direction (although Hawaii would!)

Sorry that was my mistake...I fixed it.  I agree it should go through WA.

I think it's a glitch on the map - I had one mailed from Alaska, but it shows as mailed from Hawaii on the map. (it's a completed transaction)

"I could have driven there and picked them up faster!!"

The same thing happened to me. I requested a book from 141 miles away (NH to ME) but it went to MA first!   LOL   :)
