Or at least I would if I delivered mail on the streets where these cool custom mailboxes can be found!
I’m always on the lookout for funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and I’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. And some of my RVing friends have been generous enough to share the mailboxes they find in their travels too.
Anybody can stick an old tin box on a post, but these folks weren’t satisfied with just a generic mailbox. What fun is that?
We came across this one just the other day in Crystal River, Florida, which is home to a large population of manatee every winter.
Fish also seem to be popular with the custom mailbox crowd. We found this one in Crystal River, just down the street from the manatee.
And this one was is in Colonial Beach, Virginia.
Not far away, somebody had converted an old Evinrude outboard motor into a one of a kind mailbox.
I don’t know if I know the fellow who lives here well enough to make a “delivery in rear!”
And if she won’t let me have a giant hammer, you know she won’t let me near a bulldozer!
Any Florida Gators football fans in the crowd?
I’m more of an old car guy myself.
And yes, I’m also a gun nut. I bet this mailbox would keep the door to door salesmen away!
Some people in Oklahoma prefer a revolver over a semi-auto.
And last, but not least, if you’re really paranoid and even a giant gun won’t do it for you, how about a World War II era sea mine, like this one we found in Michigan? I guess if those door to door salesmen show up in a battleship, this will keep them away.
As you can probably tell, we haven’t done a lot the last couple of days. Terry wasn’t feeling 100%, so we never left the motorhome all weekend, except for a walk I took to the dumpster last night. I got a lot of writing done, Terry was busy with laundry, weaving, bookkeeping, and the 101 other things she’s always doing no matter how she feels.
We’ll see what today brings. We have some errands to run and orders to mail out. I wonder what kind of mailboxes I can find on my way to the post office?
