Delivery on ice


Minnesota Highway Contract Route Driver Fred Caravetta with his sled full of mail destined for Oak Island.

The March edition of Your Postal Podcast takes us along on what many would consider the ride of a lifetime, but is just another winter day’s work for a man who crosses a frozen lake to deliver the mail to Minnesota customers.

You’ll also hear about an iconic letter carrier who is celebrating five decades of service to his nation this year.

The program concludes with a roundup of postal news, plus details on how you can enter to win a Mr. ZIP collectible bobblehead doll.

Audio and transcript versions of this and previous shows are available now at

    Somebody is trying to sell one of these dolls on ebay for $125. If it’s really worth that much, I’d be surprised if people didn’t leave a comment.

    You don’t really need to enter the contest though. It’ll give me a better chance to win. 😉
