Shipping D700 in high temperatures.
My D700 and lense shipped out today via Fed Ex Ground from Georgia. The temperature is in the high 90's. Does anyone know if Fed Ex Ground packages are in transit over the weekend or is the package sitting in a hot trailer baking in the sun for the weekend? If it is will the high temps hurt the camera or the lubricants in the camera and lense?

I believe all packages are unloaded from the truck and scanned into the location. They don't load the packages on the appropriate trucks until the morning they leave.
The package doesn't stay on the same truck the entire trip. It is moved from truck to truck since the trucks generally only work in a given region.
Shoot nature with respect and don't trample it or startle its inhabitants. :)

Relax. I'm sure someone will disagree with me, but I have kept many cameras for many years in hot cars for long periods of time. There's never been any sign of damage due to the heat. FedEx transports our new cameras the same way everywhere in all weather (it's often 110F here in CA). They'll get yours to you in perfect condition.
