Earlier this month, I mailed a PBS book from Colorado to Minnesota with printable postage.

It left Denver at 3 a.m. on Dec. 13 and arrived in Capitol Heights, Maryland, late in the evening on Dec. 14.

Four days later, it was scanned in Greensboro, NC. It has not been heard of since.

I've seen books take short detours before, but none this far from the intended destination. Comments or thoughts? Have the holidays wreaked havoc on the normal USPS distribution routes?

It should have been routed to Des Moines then to Minnesota.  Everything just about that leaves Minnesota routes through Des Moines so I assume the opposite is true.  I hope your wandering package finds it's way to the place it is intend to go soon.

Yay! I just checked the tracking again. The book is in Saint Paul - the right state!
