Flying with Backpacking Gear
by Paula G
Hi there -- we have planned a wish bucket trip in October for through hiking the Trans Catalina Trail. We've worked out many logistics... others we are waiting for schedules to be available to book (Ferry not reservable that far in advance for instance)
We have never done a backpack via air travel. What is the best way to ensure packing it/checking it so it gets there safely?
Because of the hiking poles and the first aid kit, it wouldn't make it as a carry on (no one wants that beautiful leatherman knife taken by TSA)....
Thanks in advance.
