Bad news on the shipping front
I finally called the shipping company after no one responded to my email after several days. I almost wish I hadn't called them. What I learned is that the crate was delayed in Los Angeles due to customs. It won't be here in Greenville until October 25.
I can't say I was overly surprised. I figured that could be the case. Thing is, it could possibly be delayed again once it reaches the final customs check here in South Carolina. Adrianna, my contact at Phoenix International, says she thinks things should be okay.
Now I just have to wait for the shock of what all this red tape is going to cost me. She is supposed to be sending me the forms and such sometime next week. I'm guessing it is going to cost me several hundred dollars.
Not exactly the kind of news I want to hear on a cool and overcast day. It really bums me out.
