The boxes have been found. Got a call from Cabela's yesterday afternoon. The man with the boxes was on the phone and wanted to get in touch with me. Got his phone number and called.
Here's the story. The UPS driver stopped at the corner where the cluster mail boxes are and gave the boxes to the gentleman standing there and asked him if he would deliver them to the guy that lives at the corner of Gold Creek Trail and Wildberry Lane (I live on Wildwood Way). The UPS driver didn't want to drive up the hill in the little bit of snow that was on the road. The man took the boxes home because the gentleman who lives on Wildberry Lane is only up here (it's like a Summer house) every 2 or 3 months or so. Because another couple are closer friends, he dropped off the boxes to him and asked him to email the Wildberry gentleman and let him know he has the boxes. Note: These three houses are up on the top of the mountain behind my house.
The email was sent and the reply was that he wasn't expecting any boxes from Cabela's. A check of the labels and it was discovered that they belonged to someone else, namely me. So Gordon (we're on a first name basis, now) looks on Mapquest and realizes I live right down the hill and checks information for a phone number. Can't find one (phone is in my wifes name) and calls Cabela's, who calls me, and gives me Gordon's phone number. I'm up the hill and find out I can see Gordon's back yard from my porch, get the boxes and I'm a happy camper.
Now, what to do with the UPS driver. Should I call them Monday morning and tell them I have the packages or let him come out and look for them? Remember, the guy he gave them to was not the guy who ended up with them. How evil are you guys?
