    You can't imagine how cheap they are in. Good Will store. I bought a all leather one that would go in overhead sideways, but since I don't pay luggage doesn't matter for 5 bux.
    Speaking of luggage: how carefully are a set of clubs checked?

    Have been tempted to return some time with nothing but not sure if the authorities would see the humour in that.
    ...came back from Santiago, with only a carry on..only thing inside was my shaving kit...at customs they looked inside and asked me where I came from...I told them the DR, he just nodded and said go ahead...……...

    no point for me to spend 30 bucks on each one as checked luggage. even empty you pay. I usually only pay about 10 each for used ones

    Ah, the good old days, when we flew down with our two kids, and the airlines gave us 2 suitcases each. Eight giant suitcases, 4 carry ons, 4 personal items, we needed a pickup truck to get home from the airport. We used to buy big old used ones as extras, and leave them behind. Nowadays, we travel with just two carryons and two personal items, everything else goes down in boxes/drums. Cheaper and easier.

    flying out POP, I had gotten a humidor with 200 cigars in it, packed it in a extra suitcase that I had so it would not get destroyed, got called to customs for bag check, when I get there.. 4 guys customs and police make me open it, they were concerned with the Boveda Humidity Control Packs and not really the cigars, asked if I like to smoke cigars, and what was in the 4 packs and then if they could have a couple of cigars... nope sorry there a gift. zipped it up and on my way

    100 cigars or $800US value, whichever comes first. You can bring more but have to declare them.
