On Sunday I had the first time ever experience...
I balanced my suitcase to exactly 50 pounds!
You air travelers know what a challenge it can be to stay below the airlines maximum weights.
I thought it was a little heavy when I put the bag in the car,
then I thought maybe, I was just tired (WIshfUL THinkIng).
When I put it on the scale it was almost 4 pounds over!
**we have learned to put the heaviest one on first**
so I started pulling things out...
(needed for our alternate flight down when the jets were ALL stuck in Kotzebue),
The scale went to 46.4 pounds!
So I put the food back in and it went to exactly 50.
The ticket agent and I both looked at it and smiled.
I wasn't fast enough to take a picture of that rarity before she push the send button :-(
The snowpants flew home in another bag.
As I was feeling weighty this morning I started calculating..
snowpants=almost 4 pounds
+winter coat+skorp+warm liner+2 pairs of socks+bogs+glove+mittens
It's all relative..as I was driving the radio said the record low in 1989 was -45,
-25 in my layers felt pretty toasty.....
