First rule of flying these days, before you pack your luggage, empty everything out of it. Check all the small pockets, you never know what you might have unintentionally stowed away. One time I accidently took along my tire levers. They had been stuck in a pocket of my back pack and made it through the first two inspections, but on the third, the TSA objected to them and made me send them home by mail.

Don't expect much although it's cool in it's own way. If you are renting a car, go drive up in the hills and view the city/valley below. Mini-mini-Hollywood Hills-ish. Kinda cool. I understand they do have some cool bike paths around the river though. Perhaps you can rent a bike?

Get there at least one hour early so you don't miss your flight.

I have a project for you... About 15 years ago, I had an engine cowl depart my plane about 90 miles north west of Boise. You could hike around in the woods and try to find it for me.

Yeah, an hour should do at PDX. My wife and I have gone through there 3 times in the last month and we always end up sitting around the A concourse for an hour anyway. If you're there early, check out the artwalk- you'll probably walk through it if you're flying Southwest.

Since you're from Portland, and ride, I'll guess you might enjoy beer. Check out Boise's brewpubs - Bittercreek Alehouse, Bier Thirty, Sockeye Brewing, Harrison Hollow and others. If the weather is decent, rent a bike from Idaho mountain touring and ride the green belt or try riding up to Bogus Basin.

Cinch all the straps down and tie them together so that nothing is loose. It will be fine.

It looks a little oversize for carry on pending aircraft type. You can always gate check it though!
