Did they make him take off all 14 pairs of shoes, too?  Man, security is a pain in the ass.

Here is what you really need, a carry on bag that you wear on the plane like a coat to avoid charges.

That's what I'm thinking. I don't know that I've been on a trip ever, anywhere, for any length of time, where I had to take 70 articles of clothing.

I did something like this when I was 13 or 14... I took every single piece of clothing I could find, put them on over one another, and then went and stood by the road and proceeded to "strip"... The only truly stupid part is that I did this in Arizona in the middle of the day in the August... Otherwise, I got all of the weird looks I expected. :)

We have friends who did this same this when they travelled to Europe. I'd much rather pay the fee than spend 12 hours sweating through most of my clothes.

I've been flying Delta a lot lately on the regional CRJ planes. The bins on these aircraft are really small. If you show up at the gate with a bag that won't fit in the overhead, they will "valet" check the bag with a pink tag. You leave it the Jetway just before boarding and they have it at the gate, sometimes inside the Jetway, at your destination.

Best I can tell, they do not charge for this.

If you owned some underwear maybe you wouldn't need so many pairs of pants, just sayin'.

Agreed. That said,

Best travel clothes ever. I have three camisoles that I've worn to hell and back, washed out in a bathtub, packed away in a microfiber towel still damp when I had to leave earlier than expected, and they *still* look decent. Damn, I would never want to pack 70 items of clothing, unless we're counting underwear and socks as separate. Even then.
 
2012-12-17 06:55:44 PM
Why do people need so much shiat when they travel?

I have gone on trips for well over a month with nothing more than two shirts, two pairs of pants, and a couple sets of underwear/socks. Just wash your cloths in the hotel sink. Really only the underwear needs to be washed regularly anyway.

I had an idea for a carry-on vest; a lightweight mesh vest, or trench coat if you really wanna get crazy, covered with giant pockets which you can fill with stuff to avoid baggage fees. Because it's a vest it would be easy to take off when you're going through the security check. Once you get to your seat you could just take it off and stuff it somewhere.

Plus imagine the look on the security dudes faces when you stroll up with 50 pounds of crap stuffed in your pockets and a big grin on your face.

A cheap vest, say 20 bucks, would pay for itself in only one usage, and could save you hundreds of dollars over many flights.
 
2012-12-17 06:58:28 PM
True story: I was told that my bag was several pounds overweight (using a scale controlled by the airline with no certification from the local authorities which means it could weigh a feather as being 20 pounds) even though at home it came in a couple of pounds under. Snotty clerk behind the counter stood there expecting to see my plastic and to charge me $50.

fark you, ain't happening. I proceeded to step aside and put on a sweater and suit jacket, put some of my toiletries in my pockets, and shove/wedge several more items including a pair of jeans into my carry on computer bag (I recommend Dell computers because they can take near ocean depth pressure, as a result). Checked bag was still a pound over weight...allegedly. $50 please. fark you, ain't happening. Out came sweat pants and a couple more items which a draped over my computer bag. Here's the bag, have a *nice* day.

I looked like a gypsy part way through the terminal. Stopped in a shop and found an athletic bag on clearance. Shoved several items in it and got on my plane just in time.

I will never fly the airline (had 'American' in the name...) again. I still have the athletic bag (which I also used on the return flight) though.

the dude probably had so many clothes because he was planning on selling them or outfitting his entire family when he arrived at his destination.
 
2012-12-17 07:05:32 PM
There was one who was famed for the number of thing
He forgot when he entered the ship:
His umbrella, his watch, all his jewels and rings,
And the clothes he had bought for the trip.

He had forty-two boxes, all carefully packed,
With his name painted clearly on each:
But, since he omitted to mention the fact,
They were all left behind on the beach.

The loss of his clothes hardly mattered, because
He had seven coats on when he came,
With three pairs of boots -- but the worst of it was,
He had wholly forgotten his name.
