    This is the first I have heard of UPS delivering packages by boat. I happen upon this on wikipedia. I can only assume it is true, being that wikipedia has information about it. I knew we delivered by land and air, but never knew we delivered by water, too!

    (About half way down the webpage, there is a picture of the boat loaded.)

    Anybody else ever heard of this?

    I've seen pictures of us working with a horse and trailer. On Makinac Island in upper Michigan there are no cars/trucks allowed. Everything gets around by horse or bicycle.:)

    I heard we have a UPS mule that travels to the bottom of the Grand Canyon with the mail and other supplies. I wonder if its name is "Trickmule"??

    We even do our own "Iditarod" in rural Alaska during winter with dogs and sleds once a week or so to very outlying areas.

    Now THAT would be a real man's job....

    Can you imagine....


    "Hello, this is Captain Smith of the International Space Station and we're running low on water. And I was wondering where package #47382749273892 is at this time."

    Operator, "Hello, Captain Smith, that package is just passing the Ozone layer and should be docking at 15:00."

    So now we're gonna have a race for space....
