I just clicked on the details of one of the books on the way to me and noticed, that on the way to Arizona from Kansas, it's made a stop in Greensboro, NC.  Having been to all of these places, I guarantee this isn't the fastest way to get from point A to point B.  Kind of like flying from Missouri to Texas to get to Alaska(which is how my Alaskan friend always went home for the holidays).

The details list is just a guess by whoever programed the software for PBS.  There is no tracking on Media Mail packages.  I think it was added for amusement purposes only...........

Hey Lynn, I have a book coming from NY to Jax, FL, straight down the Eastern coast, but it's going by way of Utah, if you believe the map.  How goofy is that?!  />)

I love it when the PBS mail truck is driving in reverse to deliver my packages.  I'm also sold on the horn!
