Thursday evening around 6 I get a call from Luggage Forward, the company I used to ship my bike. Apparently, the train it was on in route to Everett derailed and the bike will not be delivered until today (the 9th). Since I am still in route myself, this is not a problem. However, one of the perks of using this company is they guarantee delivery for the date requested. So, I will get a full refund of my shipping costs! I just hope that the bike gets there in one piece.
Sat Note: My bike case is all in one piece - I have not had a chance to unpack it yet to see that it made it okay, but the case looks fine!
