Tracking: Canadian FQ RR Swap

tuppermomApril 3, 2011

Finally the RR has started!!

Sorry for the delay......life just gets in the way sometimes!

Has the robin headed north, south, east or west? You can keep an eye on it by checking the tracking number at www.canadapost.ca

Our first tracking number is: 0103 2360 0018 7854

Every time I try to track, I get the message that it is in the Milton PO. I sure hope it is on its way elsewhere. Darn PO.

Yeah, I keep checking it too and still the same message but it also says the expected date of delivery is April 7th. Not sure it is going to get to it's destination if it doesn't move out of Milton.

It seems that postal tracking in Canada is kind of lame. Apparantly, the status only changes when the package is in the hands of the recipient so you can't really see where it is going until it gets there. Canada Post could learn a lot about tracking from the USPS!

Although I sent a package to France in Dec. and I was able to track it all the way and one to Ottawa last month and it tracked too. This one is a mystery.

I have never tracked a package by Canada Post so was just going by what somewone told me. We will see what happens further on.

I have called the postal outlet where I mailed the package from and they looked to see if it had slipped down behind something and it is not there. I then contacted the person who is receiving the package first and she has not received it. I then called Canada Post and they have opened a search file. Just my luck! I had contemplated hand delivering it (would have taken less than an hour. Maybe I should have. I am away Sunday and Monday but will bring everyone up to date on Tuesday.

Its probably just taking longer in the mail than anticipated ... (hopefully). I once mailed something to Quebec (from Ontario) and to Australia on the same day ... and the one going to Australia got there first, lol! You never can tell.

Hurray!!!!
It is on its way.
It must have been held up in Milton for some strange reason.

I can't believe it took 6 days from Milton to Mississauga. It is about 20 minutes by car from the postal outlet to the sorting plant!

Well, it has been 9 days and the package has moved again! Canada Post works in mysterious ways! Not sure why it is in Stoney Creek though.

I just heard that the package has arrived at it's first destination....finally. Nannykins sister, Marilyn, was visiting with her when I first announced this swap and even though she is not a member here I decided to let her play with us. She lives in Burlington....just 20 minutes south of me and it took 13 days to get to her! When I mailed the envelope I asked if the address label would stick and was assured that it would. Marilyn told me that her address was written on the envelope so I think that the label fell off somewhere between Milton and Mississauga. I called Canada Post on Friday to trace the parcel and I assume that is when they wrote the address on the envelope.
I have enclosed instructions in the envelope but did not say to put a piece of tape over the address label to secure it to the envelope but with the events of the past 13 days, I think it would be a very good idea.
Marily will be mailing the package out tomorrow so I will post the tracking number as soon as I hear from her.

Hopefully this swap will go smoothly from this point on.

I just heard from Marilyn and the "Robin" is on it's way to it's next destination. She taped down the address label so it should arrive in a matter of days.

The new tracking number is:

0103 6050 0022 2917

The robin has made a trip to Northern Ontario, but won't be staying long. It probably arrived in Cobalt on Friday, but it takes another day to get out to where we live. So Canada Post isn't too badly with our robin. What fun!! I'll post when it flies away again.

You know what ... I totally forgot about the possible strike about to happen and have already dropped it off in the post today to wait for Tuesday (I'm going to be really busy in the next couple days and didn't want to forget).

At least it is not live plants or anything, so the fabric will keep ... I wish I had remembered though!

Tracking # is: 0078646000989757

And hopefully it will go through ok ...

It looks like the postal strike was averted so our robin should be whisking it's way to the next destination. Just a few more stops before she flies home. I can't wait to see if any of the original FQs remain!

It looks like our robin has landed in Moncton after a long journey from Richmond Hill. I think our postal workers were practising for a walkout....it was mailed on May 22nd and didn't go out for delivery in Moncton until June 2nd. Or maybe they walked it to Moncton!
Just 1 more stop then she flies home.

I enjoyed hosting the RR. So far the cities that have been on strike don't affect me but if things don't go forward in the talks I am sure they will cripple Southern Ontario. We can hope that our Robin arrives back in the nest before that happens.

I sent a package to DH's nephew on the same day that I posted the robin.....that was June 10th. It was delivered today...that's 32 days and it was posted to an address here in my own province.

Yes, the envelope arrived sometime this week. I was in Montreal for a few days and it was in the mailbox today when I got back. Funny how the package arrived first. Thanks for the extra fat quarter.

It seems to have taken Canada Post a long time to get caught up. Perhaps they were in `snail`mode because they were forced back to work.
