Hi everyone I'm even further behind in the process; trying to get a valid e-authorization web account, so that I can get the application for the permit. Despite repeated e-mails about the system not seeming to recognize me at all, the response has been the resetting of my password and the prompt to 'try it now'. But this is a different matter. I may be behind the times, but what ever happened to C.O.D. postal service? This requires that someone is home, or a trip to the /local/ post office to pick up. I even remember that for small amounts, the postperson just left an envelope with the amount due, and I'd return it with the payment the next day. Very simple. For the amounts of postage we're talking about this should work great. Perhaps we can lobby that the APHIS folk just send the packages by this method, as there are no new or unusual money problems. Dave, who is lusting for some seed, but wants to do it correctly!
