Packing and Trip Info

Hello All,

I’m checking in from Huntersville, packed and ready to head to the airport at 5 a.m. I have two bags to check, and a carry on. The bags must comply with stringent regulations pertaining to size and weight. They must be under 50 pounds and under a specific linear measurement (Length+Width+Height) of 62 inches. The linear measurement of both bags is within 5 inches on each bag. The weight of each bag is within three pounds of the 5o pound limit. My carry on bag meets the specifications, but I know it that it does not fit under the seats, or in the over head bins, so the airline will make me check it, but I will not have to pay to check this bag. I’ve packed a bag inside this bag that I can take out when they place the other bag in the belly of the plane. I will have books, chargers, my laptop, ipod,  food, etc. in this bag.

My flight schedule is as follows.

United 0808 depart CLT 8:34 a.m. arrive ORD 9:45 a.m.

United 0017 depart ORD 11:09 a.m. arrive PDX 1:34 p.m.

United 8220 depart PDX 2:45 p.m. arrive YVR 3:59 p.m.

I’ll be flying a nearly 2588 miles.

I’m very excited about this trip. Again, thank you to everyone who has helped me with the planning and implementation of the logistics that have gone into this trip.
