RV'ing issues: Mail and shipping

We now have a permanent mailing address which I will put here in case you want to send us a letter or bonds or cash or something. 
3700 S. Westport Ave. #1765
Sioux Falls, SD 57106
The way it works is the mail goes to our forwarding service and we tell them once a week where to send it.  It's worked well so far.  There's just a few days delay in getting it.
But getting something shipped seemed particularly hard today when a company refused to send a package to us at a campground where we will be for the next two weeks in Wauchula, FL.  After three calls to them, we realized that they were a little set in their ways (or small brained) and we had to come up with an alternative solution.  And that was to have the package shipped to Val's brother, Bill, in Coral Springs.  We were planning on driving down to see him anyway, so it all worked out.  I think in the future we'll not admit that our address is a campground.  We'll just say we're at a gated community with an office that accepts packages.  All true.  Maybe the "small brains" will accept that. 
Obviously we have a lot to learn.  This was a good lesson today.
