If that's the same one I bought from you, it was actually two huge, heavy boxes, in order to comply with the weight limit. It was fascinating to track the two boxes. You might think they would have shipped them together, but they actually traveled very different routes. Both eventually arrived here in good shape, but the process was a bit worrisome.

The good news is that the winch works fine.

I always worry when I'm expecting a FedEx shipment. Their delivery people are, shall we say, "inventive."

FedEx shouldn't get all the glory. UPS once delivered a laptop, just put it inside the gate, visible to all the passersby, and not even protected by a plastic bag, as they usually do. I was away from home that week, and it rained the whole week. When I took the laptop out of the box (It was a used one, so not protected by original packing.) water ran out of it. I dried it in the oven (barely warm, if you ever have to do this yourself), and it worked fine, but I wasn't really happy about the service.

I worked at UPS one Xmas. If you think the delivery is bad you should see what we did with the packages at the distribution and delivery load up centers. It is admittedly fun though playing "toss the nordic track" with a few of your buddies at 3:30am.

So did I, Xmas of '64. "Platform Man" was the job title back then. It was a good learning experience. Even now my wife marvels at how efficiently I can pack a vehicle.

I still have fond memories of the special care that must have been lavished on the boxes of booze during the loading process. The big trailers would arrive loaded with all sorts of Xmas goodies, and we would have to unload them and shunt the packages off for sorting, then we would load the packages, in order by address, onto the delivery trucks. This wasn't easy, because the fumes in the trailers from the smashed bottles of booze were sometimes enough to almost make you pass out.
