...Lois and I are returning to The Lone Star State on July 13th (actual arrival = 7/15). 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). Nota Bene: This original ad needs some serious revamping, ha, but You will get the gist of it.

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 July 18, we have 20 Shipments/29 Stops lined up so far. See photos 2-4, and a Reply with one (1) photo, 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: Google Maps Stop times show to be sooner, therefore the overall itinerary to be completed a lot sooner, based on nonstop driving; however, though we drive “nonstop”, being realistic based on the first 14 itineraries (my gregarious, loquacious and personable nature being most culpable for delays, haha), I have adjusted for later days/times in creating more accurate ETAs. As Pickups/Deliveries are added, ETAs will likely be affected, but we will apprise all Sellers and Customers of updates ETAs. We have also--as of the April 13th itinerary--started allowing ourselves three (3) hours per night of stationary sleep.

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!! ��
