My rule is if you can't carry it on board or gate check it (Kenjets), it doesn't come. So this week we go to London for 9 days and it will all be in my 22" role aboard. This applies for Mrs Radonc1 also (although she carries this enormous second bag she calls her "pocketbook") to deal with the overflow.

Flocks of wild turkeys are the norm in the wilds of northern Ohio. They are as dumb as rocks. They will stand out in the middle of the road and ignore horns and everything else. They move when they are good and ready! They are less dangerous than the deer that are everywhere and who are only slightly less dense than turkeys.
The deer like to camp out on the front lawn and tease the dogs who are in the fenced back yard.

At least once this soccer stuff is done, we can get back to discussing curling (ducking for cover).
