      Hi Susie
      I just checked with FedEx and they do not do any deliveries on Christmas eve. I can get the crab there on the 23rd but would that work? For 2-day delivery I would recommend sending them cooked and cleaned. The cold-paks and packaging that I'm using claim 48-hour effectiveness. I doubt the live crab would survive a 2-day trip. Let me know what you think.
      Cheers, tom

      Hi Tom,
      Can I chat with you about sending the crab to my Wisconsin house? Love to have it by Xmas eve. Those homeboys will be so surprised. Fed Ex usually takes 2 days as this address is in the boonies. Also, since it takes 2 days would it be better to have the critters come live? Am completely brain dead zeroed on how to cook em and crack em myself. -SW

      Congratulations - got the voucher OK, but we're a little fuzzy on how we figure out where y'all are set up from day to day....

      Hoping you guys will consider bringing the shack to the San Gregorio General Store on the weekends sometimes. There are tons of tourists...and no food! Plus, we San Gregorio residents would love it!
