Have you gotten the latest edition?
Got mine Monday
Yup last Thursday!
Also Monday on Long Island.
Monday here in the hills of Arkansas
#84 showed up here yesterday!
Not yet but check everyday
Sorta like the ketchup ad...anticipation. Wait wait, don’t tell me! It’s here. Belated birthday present on the 29th. Whew!
Got mine yesterday.
Two days ago, but my mailman crammed it into the mailbox and damaged it.
I've been there and No I haven't gotten mine yet~ I'm also a Lifetime Subscriber. HRP
Yesterday, with my new issue of Modern Rodding,, yea OT but a nice mag with writers and photographers I like
Nothing way up here but that's not surprising, we're usually behind getting the mail.
Hit Nor-Cal Sacramento area on 23rd
Sent from my SM-G930V using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
got mine-monday-- OHIO
Mine came Monday-even though I'm not a Lifetime Subscriber. As far as getting your issue later than other people don't bitch about TRJ, they send them by Periodical Mail, bundled by zip code (let's use 90210) provided a particular zip has multiple subs, then by region, 902xx for example and then I guess it might go by state. This time mine came early, next time I may not be so lucky, it all depends how that bundle is handled at the Postal Service distribution center. Remember that last thread about subscriber issues with TRJ #83 when some guys got bundles of magazines? That may have happened because the new mailing service TRJ used somehow mis-labled the bundles.
How do I know all this? As a longtime eBay seller I've looked at USPS information for ways to cut my own shipping costs but some of the things I learned don't necessarily pertain to my needs.
Got mine on Monday!
Mine arrived yesterday
Monday, hand delivered to the front door and not crammed into the box.
We're glad to hear issue #84 has already reached some of you, and for those who haven't gotten theirs yet, it is on its way.
Regarding the problem with bundles of the previous issue being delivered to individual subscribers, the U.S. Postal Service told us that the problem was on their end, not our mailing house. Fortunately it happened to a relatively small percentage and we were able to get replacements to those readers. It's fairly standard practice for mailing houses to deliver bulk mailings in bundles and for the USPS to un-bundle them and deliver them to individual subscribers. In the midst of everything that was going on in the USPS and the world when issue #83 went out, that just didn't happen. So far we haven't had any reports of the same thing happening with #84, and we're grateful for that.
Let us know what you think of the issue when you get it—we were pretty excited about it, but always like to hear readers' feedback. Thanks.
No in Tennessee. No surprise though, the mail as been screwed up in West Tennessee for years.
Great!! Thanks a lot for starting this thread - - - I'm so ramped up to see it now, I'm standing by the mailbox in the rain (cold rain, too) waiting for the mailman. You'd think I never grew up. Wait - - -
Thanks, I’ve been waiting
