I ordered my new tube last week and it looks like its not even picked up by Fed-Ex yet from the store! Mad I realize it was a holiday week but what the heck and its coming from a store in Colorado so I'm sure its going to take at least a week if they were on top of things. I was hoping to use it this week, temps and conditions are going to be perfect, low 80's sunny and calm. I ordered it from The Creek Company, has anyone else dealt with them?

I just waited 9 days for my 420 to arrive from Creek Co. First off,
apparently they are dropshipping from a warehouse in Washington state
,probably where these tubes get off the boat from China. My first
notification came from Fed-Ex that they were notified to pick it up.
Another day passed and they picked it up. It departed Washington
facility and made it to Oregon facility in another day. Then it departed Oregon and I didn't hear anything for four days when it
arrived in Minniapolis. The next day it left there and head for the
factility a few hundred miles south. Then it came to my door. Creek
Co. stated that I should allow for ten days delivery, and it made it
in nine so I didn't feel I had a leg to stand on complaining. I had
planned to use it on the 3rd and 4th and it arrived the 5th. Oh well,
it gave me time to get started on my rack mount.(just don't glue anything until you actually get your tube, because no matter how many
pictures you look at, something will need modifying. I am in the middle of the country and thought I would get mine in a few days.WRONG...for $20.00 shipping Fed-Ex seems to take their sweet
time and just make it in their alotted time frame. (10) days I'm kind
of glad it didn't ship from Colorado because Fed-Ex is telling people on their site that the wildfires are delaying anything moving
in or out of that state. All in all, the ODC420 is worth the wait.
You are going to LOVE your tube, and the sale price leaves you with
lot's of room for all the extras (Thank God) because I have put over
$200.00 out for these things and I had my flip camera and fins already. Small tackle boxes to fit the pockets, a pump,a rack that will inevitably mean a half dozen trips to the hardware store(lol)
all this stuff adds up!! I'm very pleased with my tube and my choice
because of the pricepoint and value. It's built like a tank for the most part and should last for years (fingers crossed) Be ready to take a small scissors and clip the unhemmed nylon "hairs" inside the
pockets. They will jam up the zippers if they get caught up in them.
