Six Moons Designs Delivery Options


Today is the final full day prior to going down to the trailhead... at least, hopefully. We had a bit of a disappointment yesterday (Tuesday).

We decided, at the last minute, to order two solar umbrellas from Six Moons Designs. This is a particularly hot and exposed section of the trail so having any type of artificial shade is important. Their website listed the USPS Priority Express option as 1-day delivery so we were excited to get the umbrellas today (Wednesday). We pulled the trigger on the purchase at 9:01 AM, it was processed at 10:23 AM, and USPS confirmed the shipping label creation at 12:06 PM, but despite this quick turnaround, our 1-day delivery is taking 2.5 days from purchase. Needless to say, I am not happy. I get that we risked this with a last-minute purchase, but don't advertise 1-day delivery when, in reality, it will not be 1 day.
