Can anyone in the UK who has received their helmet tell me if it was shipped via airmail and how long it took to arrive? I've still not received mine.
Surely it can't have been shipped surface mail?
Despite the US Postal Service's best efforts, look what arrived yestertoday:
You might have noticed that I made up a new day... yestertoday. Let me tell you a story...
So, there was a shipping problem, and the helmet got bounced all the way back across the country to Oregon. Chris re-shipped it Priority Mail to get it back out to me ASAP.
I checked the tracking number yesterday (4/14) and saw that they attempted to deliver it on Saturday the 12th (it is my office address, and we aren't open on weekends). The tracking site says to call or fill out a web form to reschedule delivery. I call and they say that it's been returned to the main postal center and the earliest they can re-deliver is the 16th, but I can pick it up if I want.
Conveniently, the postal center is next door to my daughter's daycare, so that was easy.
I went in to the postal center and they said "it was delivered yesterday"
Refresh the tracking page and sure enough, it was delivered at 3:30 yesterday.
Check with the admins at work... no-one picked up a package for me.
Checked with building security. They said that the USPS often leaves packages on the loading dock and that they have an "unclaimed mail" shelf out there.
Sure enough, there it was.
So... they bounced the package back on Saturday because we were closed, but left it outside on an open loading dock overnight last night? Wacky!
In any event, it is now safely in my hands, ready to be painted at my earliest possible convenience!
Any update on the remaining helmets, Chris?
That is terrific news Brian, I am relieved, to say the least. My apologies again for the inconvenience and screw up's
Deiusx, JimmyC, Keith ... your parcels were still in "stasis" with my shipper. I also apologize for that as well. In light of recent circumstances (the death I spoke about earlier) , it has been a challenge to stay on top of things. Though it's only been about 10
days, I think it affected me a little harder than I was ready for. However, I've had time to take a deeeeeep breath, dust myself off, and move along with things as normal.
I can't reiterate enough, how much I appreciate you folks, and the patience you've all had with me. Especially in the final stages where something like the "unexpected" hit without warning and pushed me back a little just as I was finishing this up. So, from the bottom of my heart, I say "Thank You" to you all.
Back to business. By week's end, this will all be wrapped up. The last 6 including the few members who's packages were in stasis.
Cheers, and God Bless
Nice to know, Chris, Thank you!
Hope you are doing well.
Nothing to say but 'Best Wishes'!
Are the Earcaps compatible with the FP-Premium?
Chris, I sent a PM a while back, waiting on a reply. Cheers.
My condolences my friend.
Chris, maybe you could post in this thread when the helmet has been shipped? It would save me wondering if its been shipped or not.
Also, a more accurate idea of when it is going to be shipped would be good too.
Sorry for your loss Chris. hope all is well.
sorry for your loss Chris, we're here for you brother
Chris, this is to inform you that the member RaAlvarez has bought my helmet. So he has my turn and bucket for the GMH. I hope there is no problem for you
I have not read the thread in a while; helps me to be patient while waiting for my helmets. Sent a PM earlier to check on the status of the build and then read the thread and was educated on the number of mishaps and your full PM buffer. Please give an update on the build progress and shipping.
Thanks in advance.
So is my package still in "stasis" with your shipper? Thats almost two months packed and ready to go with a parcel number. Does the shipper not leave the house or something?
Still here. Still not going anywhere. I've been trying to catch up on things as said before. The personal tragedy set me back "proportionally" to what time I took "off" in between. I didn't expect that it would be that bad, but two weeks is two weeks. So bear with me. Please keep in mind that it is a VERY rough time for me personally. And as always, I am STILL taking care of business. I would ask for a little extra courtesy and understanding with me in this extremely difficult time.
Primrodo - For some reason I had you marked as fulfilled on my end. My sincerest apologies. It's obviously a clerical error on my part. You will be added and fulfilled immediately with the remaining members.
I've already responded to several PM's from most of you and still making my way through.
Thanks so much for the continued patience.

Your chest diamond was shipped Saturday actually.
To everyone else, PM's have been responded to in

our best not to miss anyone. However, if we have
please be patient and we will respond as soon as
For the next 3-4 days, I will be scarce on the board
filling my time in the shop diligently. Right now time
is of the essence for you folks, as well as upcoming
plans for things as well as a BIG MOVE of shop and
home. Communications will be slim at best, because
I can't do both. So, I'd appreciate it if everyone takes
a deep breath, relax, and allow me the next several days
to get this wrapped up. Finally, once and for all so
we can all move on. Please take comfort in that I'm
not going anywhere folks
Thanks as always
