Believe it or not, there's a market for the packing material (box, papers,
plastic bags, etc.) that are used to ship flat-panel TVs (check Ebay).
Burglars need these boxes to re-pack the stolen TVs. The thieves can then
either "return" them to some store, or sell the sets to bargain hunters as
"it fell off a truck."
Looks like we'll be going to Mazatlan this year for a couple of weeks. Last
trip, I learned that the hotel owns the beach in front of the hotel, and
doesn't mind if guests metal detect. So, I'm going to take mine. But, in
order to do that, I need to make a new shaft that will break down into
shorter lengths so it will fit into the dictated dimensions. I am
interested in finding out if it will be allowed in carry on, and somewhat
dismayed, as I will be in a spot when I find out if they will let it on the
plane. I believe I will remove all batteries from it so that is not an
These people are nuts. Common sense is dead.
TY. Good idea, because if I get into line, and it creates a stir, it could
keep me off the flight. I really would like to metal detect on this stretch
of beach, as it is a high end RCI property, and I think I could find
something. With the price of gold today, I could pay for the two weeks. Or
at the least, get a couple of room or phone numbers ................
To me, it depends on size, and in its present form, it is about 36" long in
its carrying case, outside the parameters of that little test box for
carry-ons. I know some flight attendants are reasonable people, and then,
some are not.
One of the freight carriers (I think UPS) makes a box that looks like
colorful Japanese cardboard luggage in which you can ship your stuff to your
destination hotel in advance. It's certainly cheaper than the $50 or so bag
charge that some airlines have (Yeah, Southwest).
Over the years, we've shipped much convention stuff to our destination
hotel. Here's an example of the address tag:
Guest John Smith
