Nah... First they going to waste one day and put the sticker of "no one in home" then delivery other day....
And the way B&H ships, you can't redirect the package to a shop ahead of the delivery attempt...

Departure Scan from DFW airport at 8:08 PM May 8. Air or Ground? Arrival scan will tell. About 24 hours away from delivery.

It appears that I will be the Last person in the United States to receive a K-1 from Ricoh's initial shipment. Gosh Thanks UPS. Can't tell you how much I appreciate you leaving my camera sitting at the airport for a little over 63 hours given the theoretical 72 hour delivery time. Also kudos for the way that 72 hour delivery time turned into a tidy 144 hours. Woo - hoo - premium work there lads.

Out for delivery as of 7:00 AM. In another 13 hours I will get notice that they attempted to deliver the package but I wasn't home. Which of course will not be true. But hey - what are you going to do.

Somebody has to be last. Looks like it will be me. I have so enjoyed the stories of people walking out of Brick and Mortar stores with K-1s - or people ordering theirs on the 1st of May and already receiving it while UPS deliberately extended my delay by sitting on my package in Dallas for 63 hours. Good show that. Way to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Last in the US maybe, but not the very last if that cheers you up.

"A watched pot never boils." True, however an unwatched pot will boil over, scorch the pot, and burn down the house, so you really don't have much option now do you?

I assume everyone else here in the states has their B&H first shipment Cameras - since I'm not seeing any other posts. Looks like my estimated time for arrival here is going to be on the money. Just. A. Few. More. Hours.

You are the most patient person on Earth. I couldn't do it.

I'll never, ever do it again.
