 +Caveats:
 +
 +  * Call or look online first to see if the PO in question accepts General Delivery.  Some places with multiple POs only accept Gen. Delivery at one location. 
 +  * UPS/FedEx/etc //might// deliver to the USPS if the post office's street address is included.  This is highly variable and depends on local relationships between the entities.
 +  * tracking may not be complete -- general delivery shipments may show "out for delivery" in the post office's city as the last step until acually picked up.

 +
 +===== local mail services =====
 +Local services like UPS stores may accept packages for a fee.((http://www.cheaprvliving.com/forums/Thread-shipping-address?pid=259088#pid259088))
