I didn’t mention it previously, but there is another fellow who was told by the same source that his unit would also ship last Monday. Like me, he didn’t receive any confirmation that it had shipped from the dealer (same as mine) or from Meade. He did, however end up receiving a call this week from the shipper, who wanted to schedule the delivery for the following day. He’s much closer to Meade, so it is possible that mine also left Monday and they just didn’t tell me. Since I’m in Ohio, I’d expect that to mean a delivery this week – and a call from the trucking company to schedule delivery. I’m not counting on it, but it is something to feel optimistic about if I choose to do so.
UPDATE: It isn’t a rumor any more. Delivery is scheduled for April 11 !
Time to set up a new post-delivery category.
