Home, safe and sound. Just recovering from the vacation now.

Leaving Missouri for Ohio tomorrow... so much to get done before morning.
spiderdust: (thoughtful)
We're taking Plush Cthulhu along on the trip, and he will be keeping a log of the trip (with pictures!) via LiveJournal.

Not much content in there so far, but there's a couple of pictures. He'll have a lot more to post after Monday. :)

Does anyone know if a cane counts as your one personal item in addition to your carry-on bag when flying, or would one be able to board with, say, a carry-on bag, a purse, AND a cane?

I'm taking the cane for the trip because I'm sure I'm going to need it (especially at the fair in Missouri), but it won't collapse small enough to fit in my suitcase, plus I might need it at the actual airport.

I checked the airline's website, and while it mentions that you may have a personal item (such as a purse, or a briefcase) in addition to your carry-on, and it mentions that canes, walkers, and oxygen tanks are items that you may bring on board (even though they exceed the size restrictions), it's unclear as to whether or not you can bring a cane in addition to a carry-on bag and a personal item.

Discussed the merits of road trips with [livejournal.com profile] nexushoratio. His idea of a road trip is the drive to the airport before you board your plane. He doesn't understand the joys of stopping to see the World's Largest Kachina Doll, driving through the desert and listening to Mojo Nixon, drinking truck stop coffee*, wondering if that tree you just drove by was real or a hallucination, passing by huge statues of Abraham Lincoln's head and big cement teepees, and finding Route 666 by accident!

Of course, there's also the miles and miles and MILES of driving through fields and fields of corn, wondering the weird cult of children is going to come out of the field and kill you, and miles and miles and MILES of driving through the dark in a no cell phone service zone, not seeing a thing, not getting any stations on the radio. I don't miss that part.

But there's just something about unexpectedly finding the 2nd largest cross in the Western Hemisphere while driving along, and it can't be replaced by traveling on a plane.

*Technically anything that's strong enough to make your spoon melt and makes your eyes bulge out of your head should be pronouced "KER-fee", especially if you get it from a truck stop at 3am. :)
