Haven't flown since before 9/11. Plan on doing carry on, how many bags can each person have? Was planning on bringing a backpack, and a little carry bag. All help is appreciated. One more sleep til Wanee!

You can have one carry on that is of appropriate size and weight plus one personal item. If you log onto your airlines website they give you all details! See you tomorrow!

Also there are still limitations of liquids. Shampoo and things of that nature can't be more than 3 oz. I always check my bag with those things.

I'm not too sure that flying is safe.....

Anyway - I try to never check any bags, and you can carry on something like a back pack and another little carry bag.

Like Susea said - any liquids or gels need to be in a one quart clear zip lock bag, and any container needs to be 3 ounces or less. And, you'll need to un pack that plastic bag and separately place it on the belt for the x-ray machine.

Oh! Make sure your socks don't have any holes in them!

And if you carry a pocket knife (I always have a Swiss knife) or anything remotely sharp, be sure to check it. It's not a bad idea to bring some food, since what you will get on the plane varies fro nothing to disgusting- just watch the utensils.

One carry on bag, one personal item. No aerosols, no shampoos, toothpastes or other toiletries over 3 ounces. No knives of anythng that could be considered as a weapon. Not having my pocket knife was the hardest part of my NY trip. I felt naked without it.

I pretty much always check my main bag. I pack my Leatherman (multi-tool-knife thingeroo) in it, so I have that when I get there. I hate competing for the overhead space (I save that for my Little Martin), and I also hate being the guy that beats the crap outta everybody as he (or she) hauls that big suitcase down the aisle.

Hey Mike, if you plan on bringing any water on board, buy it after you pass through security.
Enjoy the festival see you in May

Just visit the ashtray out in front of the baggage claim. There will be plenty of abandoned burning smokes laying there to light with. That is if you smoke.

You could had fedx'ed your overflow to the Wanee office.

I can usually smuggle through bookmatches in my pocket. I have never once tried to set my shoes on fire.

No lighters for sure (as I found going back and forth from Beacon) - they'll find them even if you don't know they are there! And make sure there are no stray coins in the bottom of your pockets because you'll irritate the wand lady.

And they say no lighters or matches in checked bags either. What the h***? The terrorists are winning.

and if you get to talking to the person next to you, don't describe any of the recent beacon shows in the following way...


"It was the BOMB."

Exactly. The TSA banned lighters because of the shoe-bomber, who tried to blow up his shoes with matches while on a plane in-flight. So the TSA banned lighters, but you can still bring matches on-board. Hmmmm. I feel safer now.

In any event, check the TSA's web-site about what you can and cannot bring on-board. The previous folks pretty-much got it right. Oh, and you can't bring your chain-saw with you either.

I flew on Mon and the sign at the TSA checkpoint said no lighters, or matches. And it also says the same for checked bags, like you could do anything about it at that point.

I was able to take matches (not that they actually knew I had them - they just didn't turn up in scan).

Norm: I got a plane full of people saying you threatened that stewardess.
Greg Focker: I was not threatening her. I was just trying to get my bag into the overhead storage thing...
Norm: You were acting like a maniac and you threatened her with a bomb.
Greg Focker: No, I said I didn't have a bomb.
Norm: But you said bomb.
Greg Focker: I said, "It's not like I have a bomb".
Norm: You said "Bomb" on an airplane.
Greg Focker: What's wrong with saying 'Bomb' on an airplane?
Norm: You can't say 'Bomb' on an airplane!
Greg Focker: Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb. You gonna arrest me? Bomb bomb bomb bomb! During the war I was a BOMBadier!

On one of the connecting flights coming home from the Beacon, I noticed I was at Gate C-4. I was afraid to mention it out loud.
