    To be walking up onto peoples' porches in the middle of the night is just ludicrous. I can't even fathom the idea. Also, as far as the mailbox, that is a no-no, as well. No toucha da mailbox.

    I wouldn't do it. You will set off dogs, motion sesors, even if you don't act suspicious it will seem suspicious and someone will call the cops or shoot you.

    I ended up waiting 'til the morning light, since it began raining just as I was about to walk out the door. I'm glad now I wasn't able to....lol Don't like the idea of disturbing people.

    if you're too busy to hang fliers during the day does this mean you'll be mowing during the graveyard shift? :D Seriously, It is best to do this during daylight hours. I think about if it were my house and someone walked up to my door in the middle of the night then in my mind it can be for no other reason than criminal intent.

    Again, I didn't end up doing it guys. I did however do hundreds of flyer insertions into the flyer/paper boxes. Hope the news people don't mind. I'm kinda scared that when the paper comes though, they will just smash my little flyer into a crumpled mess to the back of the box with that big newspaper...lol
