Getting close

Today at the Habitat for Humanity house, work was completed on the front steps and I made myself useful installing the mailbox. Posthole digger, Quikrete, and mounting the box on the post.

This post begged the question for me: What determines whether mail carriers walk their route or drive their route? I tried Googling to find the relevant regulations or criteria, but it seemed like it was going to be a rabbit hole I didn't have time to blindly explore.

My sister-in-law was a postmaster in a mostly rural area. I may not be totally right, but once delivery options are made, they don’t generally change. My MIL had mailed delivered to her door. I get mine delivered at the end of the driveway . My son in Tampa had his delivered to the door because his house was very old. New communities are mostly required to have gang mailboxes.

@danette Keeping delivery mode or method unchanged seems very, very plausible given the seeming paradoxes of comparing some addresses that have delivery-to-the-door and others that seem "similar" enough to also have delivery-to-the-door but do not. Thanks, Danette!
