Although I tried to take most of the material I will need to stage Match Game SF up to Oregon the last time I drove there, I unfortunately forgot the poster tube full of the large posters for the wall and for the front of the contestants' tables. I also meant to leave my folding luggage cart up there in Oregon so that Lisa could bring it along to Norwescon along with the other material. That makes it much easier moving stuff from our room to where we're staging the game. So now I have the poster tube that I'll have to take as my second checked bag, and after packing the remaining game material and the folding cart into my other bag, I find myself getting dangerously close to the 50 pound limit with some stuff still to go.
And on top of that I'll have my computer backpack containing one laptop and my briefcase with the other computer. (The second computer controls the sound effects for the game, assuming we actually have someone to operate it.)
Normally I've not minded checking my CPAP machine inside my luggage, but the weight is likely to be a problem. I'm considering taking the risk of carrying the CPAP along as a second personal bag and hoping that Alaska won't balk at me. I know TSA will allow the machine through -- it's just that Alaska's web site is vague on the subject.
