I received an email that my LLVJ #14 shipped on February 22nd, but haven't yet received it in Houston, TX on March 9th. Is this long of a delay unusual?

Annoying? - Yes!

Unusual? - regrettably not.

It will likely show up in your mailbox by the end of this week.

Check out the thread below and my post #35 there yesterday on this subject.

Check out the thread "LLVJ #14 Is Here" to see that many of us have been on pins and needles waiting for delivery. Mine was shipped on February 22, also, and I just received it here in Wisconsin yesterday. Give it a few more days. I know it's agonizing, but the wait is worth it!

Oh, I know it's worth it. I got the first 13 issues all at once back in December. I expected to take a few months to watch them - one per weekend or so. I ended up watching all 13 over only a few weeks. Wonderful stuff! So now, of course, I'm waiting expectantly like the rest of you...

Likewise, my e-mail stated a 22FEB ship date. The mail has come and gone for today, and no DVD. I'm just west of Wisconson(Minnesota), but you would of thought that it wouldn't take that much longer to get here.

I hope this is indicative that I'm not the only one still waiting. I'm used to my little West Virginia post office being a bit slow, and I try to get used to waiting on the LLVJ, but tomorrow will be three weeks since I've heard it was "in the mail!" If it is going to take this long every time, I'd rather not know when it was sent.

Are we in the colonies still being punished for leaving?

It's only 562.6 miles. Where's my VJ?

And yes, I'd like cheese with my whine.

I checked Goggle Earth.

Its only 386 miles from St Albans to Toronto. But then again nothing in WVa can be gotten to in a straight line.

Its Ok for me to say this: my mother is from Morgantown and I went to Wheeling College.

I love W Va.

Nope, still waiting in Los Angeles, and I know that 2 California subscribers have long since received their's.

Ok Bob,

There's an old, old joke about a farmer and fellow rolling a flat tire. I'll paraphrase it here:
Fellow with flat tire: How far is it to Toronto and the Pitko Gallery?
Farmer: About 386 miles as the crow flies.
Fellow with flat tire: Well just suppose for a minute that the crow had to walk and roll a flat tire?
Farmer: Well, in that case, it's a bit closer to 562.6 miles. Gotta go around that lake you know.

You are right about WV though, you just can't get there from here. Doesn't make much difference where there is either.

Thanks for the comeback.

What's almost as bad is - no support or contact.  I'm real close to demanding a refund.

Still no joy here in Los Angeles after nearly 4 weeks (shipped 2/22).  I just e-mailed Steve Suave, who handles customer support, to arrange for replacements.  I've received every other LLVJ in about 14 days so I can't imagine what happened this time.

A disgruntled postal worker is probably selling them on ebay.

Well, I'm still waiting. I emailed Steve yesterday (Saturday) and they understand there is definately a problem. I was actually surprised at the speed of his reply; just a couple of hours. He says they are asking their subscribers to be patient just a couple more days. I hope that means there is little he can do on the weekends and we can look forward to something happening early this coming week. Stand by .... for news!

Likewise, nothing here! Who here in Minnesota already has their copy and where are you located. I'm in a southwest suburb of St. Paul.

It arrived in today's mail.  This will be my last order until a real carrier is used by the store, unfortunately.  I do enjoy the videos, but the hassle is rediculous on principle.  Maybe they shouldn't bill until the product arrives, and then we can say 'check's in the mail' for 4 weeks, and blame it on the Border Beer Patrol.

I got mine in Bloomington yesterday.  A friend got his in Cottage Grove almost 2 weeks ago.  Someone else went on record saying they got on in MN about that time.

So they are in the state.
