Kyle, I agree with you, the higher the fat content, the longer the bread 
lasts, and will ship better.  I live in Indiana, and send bread to my 
daughter in Washington state quite often.  I  prefer to send her 
buttermilk-based bread, which is still fresh when she gets it.  I do go to 
an "overnight"  shipping place in town, I hate to think of my effort going 
to waste, and my daughter not being able to enjoy her surprise.  You are 
quite right, always make sure the bread is completley cooled, then I place 
it in a ziploc freezer bag.  That is also what we place our bread in at 
home, it seems to stay fresher that way.  Thank goodness we can ship across 
country so quickly, my daughter is pleased with her gift, and I am happy to 
make it for her!
