glad things worked out for you guys. USPS is my last choice to send stuff. I find they are no better or worse in losing packages compared to UPS, but at least UPS already builds in some insurance and you get some tracking.
I only thought to post because a kid sent a Spyder Flash he bought with his savings in for service. USPS lost it and now he has nothing. i felt really bad for him, wish i could have helped him more.
