With our life style we do not have the mail box beside the door or out on the road so we do not get mail on a daily basis.
(I spied this mail box in Rural PA, near Lancaster)
We have a mail service in Eustis, Florida and when we are near, we pick it up, but most of the time we call and have it delivered General Delivery to a Post Office near where we will be in the next three days. Most of the time it works well.
From life on a ship and in GITMO I was used to non-regular mail. Mail is very important when you are away from home so listening to the scuttlebutt(rumors) we could usually tell when a mail plane was due in. But now that I am with the one who usually wrote letters to me, mail isn’t that critical.
WE pay a yearly fee for the mail service and give them a deposit for postage which they hold in escrow. Each mailing lowers the escrow when it is near exhausted and they will notify us that we need to put more in the escrow account. With fuel prices the level they are, we can call for the mail to be delivered more reasonable than driving for it.

I mentioned that we pay for our mail to be shipped to us on this blog once, and confused some readers. Our mail goes to the Mail Forwarding service as normal mail. They hold it until Sherry calls for it. At that time the service packages our mail and sends it to the address Sherry gives them. So you see if we have a lot of junk mail (magazines and catalogs) the cost goes up because we pay to have that sent to us priority mail. Our mail is usually a couple weeks out from us. Most of our bills are deducted from our bank account, that way we are not late on payments, I hate to pay anything late.
Yeah, we do move a lot about every two weeks, in the winter. We have 3-4 main RV parks here in Florida. The one furthest South is on the Peace River. That one puts in the vicinity of both Florida Coasts where we have friends. So we get a chance to renew acquaintances and catch up on family news from Maine and Missouri.
We hope to try a new RV park Very near Disney in a few weeks when Reece brings Stella down.
I think Mark might be coming back down, but I am not sure. This allows them to have a more reasonable vacation since they can stay with us. We are looking forward to that, although it will be a short time.(2-4 days.)
Anyway for those who wondered, that is our mail and moving schedules over the winter. Summer is a different story, we never know about that.
Now the mail pickup does get a little confusing if we forget where we asked them to send it. LOL
We saw this Plymouth when we visited Warm Springs, Georgia.
