I had one once get within 60 miles of it's destination (think it was coming from PA - going to CO) and it turned around and went back to PA and finally made it to CO.  She did a DC on it, and we watched the little truck (which I know is just for fun, but the book was for a DGD and she liked to hear the 'beep,beep'' and see where the truck was.  LOL.  Good luck.  According to above though it's done all that traveling in only 4 days.  Pat

It looks like it may be on its way back to you.

It almost appears that the information for two different packages has been combined together, yours going to Philadelphia, and the other going from Texas to Georgia. Living in Jacksonville myself, it looks like the other one might have taken I-10 from Texas to Jacksonville and then headed north to Georgia!

I would definitely say that is data from two different packages with the same DC number.

One time I ordered a book from a PBS member who used printable postage and sent two different books to me in separate packages by printing out the generated postage/DC twice (totally illegal, I know, since they paid for the postage only once but used it twice), and the DC tracking showed the same sort of thing.

Someone did the same thing to me, and not only did they use the same label, they waited until the first book was marked received before they mailed the second one.
