    That's quite a challenge! I routinely travel with a 7kg carry on limit, which is a lot more forgiving of course, but the principles are similar. Liquid toiletries are the first things to eliminate....

    Hmm, that's too bad that the boozy Dole Whip hasn't found its way to Anaheim, because by 11am I think I'll probably be ready for one! :)

    You seem to be sold on the A30 but in case you needed any more reinforcement, I'll add that when I bought my first TB bag, the TriStar, I wished it had a single compartment configuration, and when I...
