My Luggage doesn't follow me around anymore...

I left my luggage in Detroit. And by left, I mean, I got on a plane and my luggage, seizing the chance for freedom, stayed and took a later flight. To Dulles. I'm in New York. Will I get it back in time to leave on Thursday? Will I have to visit the Google new york offices and borrow a thinkpad power adapter? Will I start to smell a little funky? Will my delicate skin be thrashed because I use the hotels $1.50 cent crappy disposable razor and $2.00 Colgate shaving cream? Will I get nicked just in time for my speech at Interop? Yes, we all want to know the answers to these vital questions, so with no further ado: Yes, Yes, No, Yes, Yes.

Time for a rolling bag that fits in the overhead. Sigh. Or I should only go on trips that take up less resources than might fit in my backpack.

You have no idea how much I squash my clothes down so that they'll fit in an overhead rolling bag. I may have to do a lot of ironing at the hotel, but that's (slightly) better than wearing the same clothes for three days.

I hope your luggage has a terrible time in Dulles and decides to check out NY.

I thought this only happened when you travel in and out of Raleigh?

I love carry-on bags. I tend to travel 2-5 days with them and it speeds up the process of travelling so much. No need for a counter check-in, no need to decide what's important enough to carry on, just put clothes and heavy stuff in carry-on (roller) bag and take a 2nd light back for your notebook, book, PSP or whatever you want to use during the flight.

It's all about carry-ons. Lately I've been using a folding garment bag w/shoulder strap - works great.

Cheers,

Next time fed-ex a care package to the hotel, no wait then it will get lost in Memphis nevermind.

Gallagher did a bit on that once, walk up to the airline counter and say, Hi, I'm going to New York, I'd like this bag sent to San Diego and this one to Chicago. Sorry sir we can't do that. Funny you did it yesterday :-)

Hope you get your luggage, we've all been there
