Hi Matthew and all,
Odd as I never view Alaska and Hawaii as not part of the USA only a bit
One thing that I do post in my adds are, No shipping to certain
countries because of extreme trouble with that countries mail service.
There are a few places like that and some people have had too much
trouble dealing with those countries so I simply don't ship to those
When their citizens tell them to clean things up and they become
reliable then we'll be glad to ship then.
