After a day of stress and fretting over packing, I think I'm ready to go! Flight leaves tonight just before midnight. Sadly, I learned the mistake of booking Spirit Airline. Thankfully, it's my return flight so I don't have to worry too much for another week. However, due to its strict regulations, my carry-on doesn't fit and I had to purchase a checked bag and my bike doesn't fit as checked luggage so I booked a separate flight home for it via Shipbikes.com. This "cheap" flight has become anything but. Live and learn!
Please send all you happy, bike-protecting thoughts to sweet little Bluebell as we start our journey late tonight. Wish us both luck for a safe trip.
Things I've forgotten already:
My shipping label
Headphones that work
A strap to hold the suitcase closed
