Keith and I painstakingly packed and weighed each of our 12 suitcases, 2 large 50#’s and 1 small carry on each, to find that the important stuff left for the last didn’t end up fitting. With less than 24 hours left we frantically took out half the stuff we had originally packed, threw it out, and repacked with the important stuff. We checked in at the Delta curbside without anyone weighing any of our luggage and with the carry-ons going unnoticed – not only were they too big and too heavy, but that we had too many. We arrived in San Jose, where Keith’s parents had to drive two cars and even then we barely fit.
