Thinking good thoughts for a smooth path to Chicago.


Once again, it appears our packages are traveling together. Mine was also accepted at 12:55pm in Carbondale with estimated delivery on Monday. But everything hinges upon whether or not it can pass quickly through the St. Louis vortex. If it arrives in St. Louis between 8pm and midnight, then it has a chance to catch the 3am-ish departure shipment and make it to Chicago or Aurora by 10am tomorrow. If that happens, I'm likely to see it on Saturday. But if the vortex sucks it in, then I need to wait an extra day or two and Monday is likely. Fingers crossed for everyone.

Of course, based upon past history, there's a 10%-15% chance the vortex will spit it out in a random direction and then it could be several days or weeks. Here's hoping the vortex doesn't hit its expanded crit.

Now is the nervous part. Will my package escape the pull of the vortex? It was scanned into St. Louis at 9:16pm last night and made its first escape attempt at 3:24am this morning. Now, it will either be scanned into Chicago or Aurora between 9am and 11am or get sucked back to St. Louis. The other possibility is that it goes dark until later tonight. Fingers crossed for everyone.

Mine successfully escaped the vortex and is in my city! Still listed as Monday delivery but I should get it tomorrow.

Good luck on vortex freedom!

Mine is now listed as out for delivery. I think mine fell through the wormhole and came out in the right spot. Best of luck to everyone else!

Package buddies!!

Our loot allegedly left St. Louis twice early today--at 3:55 am and 4:08 am. But in light of the vortex, I'll believe that when I see an arrival at a Chicago-area facility. Telling myself I'll likely get the package on Monday so I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't turn up tomorrow. (It would have to hit Chicago sometime today to make tomorrow even vaguely possible. Fingers crossed!)

+1

Until I see another scan from somewhere in Illinois, I never assume its escaped the vortex. i also tell myself it'll probably be Monday until I actually see the "Out for Delivery" message.

Edit: Oh yeah! 9:26am scan of arrival in Chicago. Hope is still alive.

No Chicago scan for me yet, alas. But I’m happy for anyone who gets their loot in a timely fashion.

Hoping that's just an oversight. Feel the same way. Happy for everyone to get their treasure soon and for awesome pulls. Love hearing the community rejoice with the happiness that is more tokens.

11:08 am arrival at the Chicago Logistics Center! So there is a chance of tomorrow. No guarantees, but at least my package escaped the vortex!

Yep, mine arrived in Oak Creek, Wisconsin at 12:42pm this afternoon. Except for the one time they decided to ship it off to Houston, it should arrive here tomorrow. Fingers still crossed.
