***NOTA BENE: As of this moment, I do not have a copilot, so, this itinerary will take longer than normal. Anybody interested in being a copilot, please hit me up after reading my WANTED ad, 'Copilot for Future Itineraries', here:

...I am returning to The Lone Star State on May 19th (actual arrival = 5/22). For those who are unaware of what all of this pertains to, please read my original ‘(VENOMOUS) ANIMAL DELIVERY SERVICE’ ad posted on September 4:, and read all of the positive feedback on the first of the aforementioned links (11/3).

I will detail how the process works which is quite simple honestly, but preferably over a phone call as I don’t have much time to type these days. In the meantime, please check out the previous ‘Texas-Bound’ ads for an idea of how these itineraries work, the smooth flow n’ logical order of Pickups and Deliveries that is, and infer what You can.

As of May 25, I have 17 Shipments/23 Stops lined up so far. See photos 2-4 for Google Maps screenshots of the current itinerary, and the corresponding list here (id est, more Stops will likely be added which, logically, will alter the itinerary, but which all affected Sellers and Customers will be apprised of renewed ETAs ASAP):

***Nota Bene: At about 10:30 ("AM", CST), I had received a flat tire which put me out of commission for ~2 hours. Then, ~3 hours later I had received a cracked rim (!!) which killed another couple of hours! From here on out, until Friday afternoon ( = 5 days/4,000+ miles later) when I sourced out an OEM rim in Savannah, GA (and had it swapped in then), I had to drive on this cracked rim and fill up the respective tire every 2-2.5 hours due to the slow leak it was causing (~7 pounds every ~45 minutes). This is what delayed the itinerary 3+ days, not to mention the added Shipments (went from 12 in the beginning, to 17 to finish). And of course, I was solo on this itinerary don’t forget. Oh, and You can thank my parents for not putting the spare in the trunk when I purchased the car from them on February 2, and when they know I drive ~15K miles per month...! SMFH.***

Nota Bene: Google Maps Stop times show to be sooner, therefore the overall itinerary to be completed a lot sooner, based on nonstop driving; however, note again that as of this moment I am going solo, in which I am allowing six (6) hours of sleep per night and adding 1-2 hours per Stop to account for food, pit n' fuel stops. And again, as Pickups/Deliveries are added, ETAs may or may not be affected, in which all affected parties will be apprised of renewed ETAs ASAP.

Please share these ads like wildfire! The more shipments the merrier! And as far as payment options ($125 [minor surcharges for multiple Pickups, and for Pickups and/or Deliveries outside of Standard Territory - be looking for a new colour-coded ‘territory map’ soon]), it is preferable for the Customer (Recipient) to pay me directly, but a few Sellers have preferred to pay me instead, and that’s fine. Payment will be due upon securing the shipment from the Seller, whether from the Customer (preferable) or the Seller. My payment option details are:

Zelle: [email protected]
Cash App: $Burzum9
Venmo: Burzum999
PayPal: PayPal.Me/Burzum999/125 (main site), or send to [email protected] (app, mobile site)
Square: Over the phone unless You trust credit card details or photos via email or text which I would immediately delete, but this is NOT recommended

I thank You in advance for Your (continuing) patronage, especially in the wake of Delta’s dreadful return on Veteran’s Day (11/11)! which, word has it, they have failed several times already! ( surprise...) I offer so many benefits to my service, including but not limited to: Daily inspections with videos of each animal sent as proof (Customers love this!); live arrival guarantee (ask for terms or details); no special crating nor IATA labels; hand-delivery to Your home, work or public place of Your choice; flexibility and versatility including able to change course last minute (e.g. from home to work); direct communication (and timely responses) with the carrier of Your precious gems; et cetera.

Give Obscure Gems Reptiles’ Animal Transport Service a shot, You will NOT be disappointed!! ��
