Our luggage, on a borrowed cart. We're waiting at the elevator for our ride to the airport (Michael T. Pins) to come downstairs.
Pat Larson, and the cart of luggage. Still patiently waiting.
We made it to MSP. At the Minneapolis airport, Pat Larson waits with the bags in line at curbside check-in. Curbside check-in is your friend... Note that the rolling bag with the mauve pack on top isn't ours - our stuff starts with the brown suitcase and the red and white ice chest. We made this trip in March. In April, Northwest Airlines changed their rules - you're still allowed two free suitcases (or other pieces of luggage as seen here) and a small carry-on-sized bag, but you're no longer allowed to check your carry-on bag for free.
