Mail delivery

I searched but could not find any discussion on where and how do you get your mail when you are on the road for months at a time.

Post office temp change of address form been doing it for years. Suggest you visit your local Post office and learn how to do it as it can be tricky.

I know I can have them forward my mail....so I give them a list of the 20 or however many campgrounds, state and national parks that I will be staying at and the dates I HOPE to be at each location over the course of 2-3 months that I am on the road..and the mail will show up at each location?....cool.

Sounds like a Charlie Foxtrot waiting to happen.....

I would not recommenced the USPS temporary change of address, especially if your moving every so often.

We tried it this winter for the first time. We normally hold the mail for 30 days (the max we are allowed here) and then when it is delivered, my sister picks it up and sends it to us. Meanwhile we reinstate the 30 day hold for the next go around.

This year we thought we would save my sister some legwork by using the temporary change of address. It took almost 3 weeks until the USPS finally got it all together. In the mean time, mail was delivered to our house, held at the post office and some delivered to my sister.

We use the USPS Informed Delivery app to see what is being delivered. That was pretty much useless (no images) most of the time.

Next time we will go back to the 30 day hold option.

Nothing but good service fromAmericas Mail Box in Box Elder SD. SD is also a great place to register vehicles and no state income tax or vehicle inspection requirement
