illumn has the K1 in stock. I got two day fedex shipping. I understand that doesn’t help anybody waiting for their order.

Never had problems ordering directly from Hank, but Illumn is great too.

I noticed a flashlight I have on route is probably coming by train from China.

It left on the 25th May and it is in Russia today (12th June). I guess it will take at least a month more to arrive here !

Just wanted to complete the route of this flashlight (it is in the country already, but not with me yet)!

Route: Sanmenxia > Wuwei > Shankou (China) > Dostyk > Esil (Kazakhstan) > Oktyabrsk (Russia) > Brest (Belarus?) > Mala (Ukraine?) > Liege (France) > Lisbon (Portugal)…. and soon to be > Porto Party

After 70 days (30 of each spent in some wharehouse already in Portugal) my flashlight finally arrived today!
It was the last thing I had ordered during the “hard” times of shipping. All the things arrived safe and sound even though they took looooonger than usual (some of them more than 2 months).

The only things I have now: 1 light from Fireflies already shipped from China, and some drivers from gchart, shipped internationally yesterday! Let’s see what will arrive first Wink

My last couple of Neal/Hank/BG deliveries have said this “DN” thing, and I had received them without incident (and rather quickly too). I do not know what the DN code means, but it had no significant impact on my shipments. -Artie

Got this from a google search of “what does DN SEND mean in shipping”:

(“I called the post office and she said it means delivery note, which means something other than transit movement happened, and DN send is a common status that means a (usually) international seller is using a different shipping company and is about to hand it over to USPS, or I would assume any local post services in” …Aug 15, 2020

Anyone know what this means? “Dn send”??? : Repsneakers)

Looks like a response to a Reddit question.

Can anyone specify the current situation with USPS?
I was upset when most parcels send to States in spring have been stacked by 90-100 days.
Today, several months after, I have almost no problems with shipping to States.
But I can not get anything from there. Several eBay orders have no tracking update for two months. They went slow and then stack in some sorting center.
Is it usual nowadays? I have heard that at least part of these problems are caused by future elections (or someone’s reaction to them) and probably won’t be solved before Nov 3rd, is this true?

Yes, they have lots of issues, they are working just part time, and downsizing staff. They never got paid for Covid mailings. And you could be right they seem to be already busy with voting by mail.

Here is some data if it helps:
