Shipping Boxes as Luggage
After I enjoyed riding my Dahon Piccolo in St. Louis, I wasn't able to check it as luggage. My brother is going to ship it back to me from his office, and bill me. The only box I had was 5 linear inches too long, to check as conventional luggage. The requirements are 61 linear inches (L+W+H), but the box was 66 linear inches. Although it tight, it looked like I could get by with a smaller box, and probably get it under this requirement. The box seemed a little wider than it needed to be.
Does anybody have any experience with this? It would be nice to check it as luggage on any future trips.
