On the road mail?

Any advice on what to do about getting mail on the road when you have an indefinite itenerary?

Is General Delivery at the post office still available? Is it reliable?

We use general delivery all the time. Just make sure you call ahead and check. Not all post offices accept it and some have time limits for how long they'll keep the mail. Other than that general delivery has worked fine for us in our 2 years of full timing.

I just picked up a package today that I had sent C/O General Delivery at the Boulder City, NV Post Office. I called them to make sure first. The only problem I had was that the company first sent it via UPS.

We use MyDakotaAddress.com, Mail Forwarding, Mail Receiving, South Dakota Residency Every time we get a piece of mail we receive an email with the return address block information. If we need the item immediately they will scan and email it usually the same day.

By doing this we only need the mail bundled and sent to us about once a month. Most campgrounds are willing to accept UPS parcels and it is easy to calculate when they will arrive. We use USPS if we have to, but we find it too unpredictable to use on a regular basis and the tracking information for Priority Mail is not real time.
