Default shipping

how would one go about shipping a bottle or two across state lines?
provided both the shipper and receiver are of legal age.

Do not use USPS. It's illegal. Use FedEx or UPS. Lots of bubble wrap and don't tell.

I use plastic bottles like these: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/amber-500-ml-pet-bottles-case-of-24.html (don't forget to order screw caps!). It makes shipping safer AND less expensive. Bubble wrap is good, though I prefer "peanuts."
