Where do you get your mail?

I have a couple years before I retire. We are not sure where we want to retire and have been entertaining the idea of traveling around until we find someplace we would want to live.
My question is where or how do you get you mail when you are on the road? Mainly mail order prescriptions. Most other things can be done online

Do most everything on line, my bank even has a feature so I can write checks to people (gardener). On drugs, we use Costco and Walmart (our Part D plans are with them). so we just call ahead and say we need to pick up at another location. Had several nightmares trying to get Express Scripts to forward meds (before medicare). We were in Buffalo and the prescription wound up in Wilkes-Barre PA!? MIL forwards mail to us if it looks important. Not all US Post Offices will accept General Delivery mail, check ahead and use the PO street address if you go that route. Had the MIL forward our mail to general delivery at a Canadian post office (twice), expensive ($20) but worked fine.

We use a mail forwarding service and then every once in a while we will have them send a packet of collected mail to a campground or resort we are at. Most places will do this for you if you ask.
Our mail forwarding service also scans all our mail so we can see (daily if we want) what may or may not be important.

I would suggest keeping Alaska as your domicile and use a mail forwarding service there to send your mail to an RV park that you are going to be at for a week or so. Packages can be sent to any UPS store on your current route.

I user mail forwarding. I have a private box as my mailing address, I call the company up and the send the mail to the address I give them. It works for me but I do most everything on line, but like a mail address.

Thanks for the replies. I was wondering how this was done.

Depends on the time of year. My mail goes to a Postal box reseller (A "Mail box store") IN Davison, So June July and a few months eitehr side, I go to the store and get my mail using my KEY

This week. I go to my phone, and a few days later to the post office, and pick up a General Delivery Care Package from Davison

I use a regular P.O. Box at the post office. Works perfect for me.

Best to get your drugs at stores where you are traveling - which ever drug store chain your plan contracts with. If you have to get drugs by mail, send them to a UPS store in a city you are going to. UPS stores will hold them for 10 days I think.
