Well, I ordered some Orange OpenLRS parts to use at the July Colorado meet and I'm still waiting for them to arrive. Ordered on 6/16 and used International (Registered) Air Mail 0 - 100g $3.99.
The only tracking entries are:


Acceptance June 18, 2013, 11:00 am HONG KONG

Processed Through Sort Facility June 25, 2013, 10:46 am HONG KONG AIR MAIL CENTRE, HONG KONG Registered Mail™

Here it is July 11th and the meet is next weekend. Either no one has kept up on the tracking information or that is one LONG flight across the ocean! Is it common for this shipping type to not get updates once it has left China?

I've had some small orders like that take over 3 weeks by air mail (no tracking).

Ouch, sometimes it never registers and then just shows up for me.
Anyways the singpost was only 2 or 3 days after, not too bad.

Has gone into investigation with HK post. No word from them yet. I opened a PayPal dispute last week and I may bump it up to try and get my money back if I don't hear anything within a few days. This truly sucks.
