Or even dark of night can keep us from finding funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and we’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. I posted a blog with some of our favorites a couple of years ago that was well received, and ever since, readers have been sending us pictures of mailboxes they spot in their travels. Here are some favorites.
