story about hammelman mailing himself bread; where is it?

i thought i stumbled upon a story about hammelman making a sourdough bread and mailing it to himself and it arrived sometime later in perfect freshness......(saw this on TFL).....i'd like to read that story again and i can't for the life of me find it. i have hammelman's book and i can't find it either. if anyone can steer me to it i would greatly appreciate this.

It's in the section on Detmolder 90% rye, I'm pretty sure.

it is in the rye section, exactly on p201.....what a great story! i'm going on a week long hike to canyon lands utah and while it's no where near the length of the hike hammelman did that story popped into my mind.
