Male Box

You could use on of these like wahoonc
Saw this Male Box in West Virginia while on the job.
Just had to stop and take a photo, truth IS stranger than fiction.
You have to admire the sense of humor that that homeowner has.

My wife and I used St. Brendan's Isle in Green Cove Springs, Fl. while we were traveling in our sailboat years ago. You change your address to a PMB, personal Mail Box, at their location. When we wanted a mail 'drop' we'd e-mail them and they would send it out, UPS mostly. They sort the junk from the first class. Different plans make it easy. Worked very well for us.

Dish tower

Nah,
That was this guy living at the bottom of the "holler".
Saw this about dawn and thought "what the heck is that?"
Looked up the ridge beside / behind the house (not a mobile home) and saw the height of the tower and how it had been extended and then the angle of the dishes. Ah ha! He built the the tower to "see" the satellite over the ridge top and had to extend it to avoid climbing the ridge and cutting down somebody's trees.
Talk about smart like a fox

mail forwarding

We have the mail held until we arrive at our southern destination, then have it boxed and shipped. The post master stuffs a flat rate box, and we get it all once a month.
For meds from the V.A., I simply have them hold all shipments (since they come at unguessable intervals) until I arrive, then ship anything that has accumulated.
This works especially nicely from Insulin: They ship insulin in a styrofoam box with freezer bags. This isn't their first rodeo, so when I tell them I am in Texas, they simply put extra bags in the box, and wrap everything inside in paper, and it gets here in one extra day (three days total). The bags are usually still hard.
I speak directly to the pharmacist on the phone, and have done this so many years that they have both addresses firmly in place on the computer.
If you travel, the V.A. will hold and send where ever you are.
Local V.A. clinics prefer that you call your home V.A. to get your refills.

You can set up a hold mail with USPS on the web, no need to go to the Post Office. We do this 8 - 10 times per year and have had good results. The worst problem is that we often return on Thursday, our regular carrier's day off. He catches it the next day.

Mail - Full Time

About a year before we went FT, we rented a PO box in a small town that permits us to use their Street address as well as the po box. This permits is to get FedEx and UPS when we are in town. We went completely digital for bills received and paid. By writing return to sender for all junk first class, we eliminated most of the junk mail. We called as many 3rd class mailers and asked to be removed. We now get almost no mail, so there is plenty of room in our po box for months on end!

We have been 4 month Snowbirds since 2009. We use TEMPORARY FORWARD with the USPS. It is absolutely HORRIBLE!! Back home, every Saturday, mail is put in our box. Neighbor checks on it. We call the post master at home to report, but it still keeps happening. All the important bills are paid on the internet, the utilities are set up with our checking account. But there are still important things that we do want. The Perscriptions are with Express Scripts and we can change our address to the campground address, so that is no problem. I started a Thread on this a couple of days ago and someone said there is a mail service with Good Sam, but you pay for it. This will always be an ongoing problems
