Luggage
« on: April 04, 2019, 07:42:53 am »
Do you have enough luggage and the type of luggage to go on a major vacation of over 10 days or so? If you do, is it old or fairly new?  I have luggage but it is about 20 years old.  However, since I travel so little, it looks fairly new.  Just wondering since I am thinking of going on such a trip in the next several years.

I have luggage that is older also looks new because like you we don't travel as much anymore.  Fixed incomes makes it harder to travel

We got new luggage about 6 years ago.  It replaced luggage that was probably 20 years old.

A store at the mall was having a end of the month sale so I was able to buy 4 pieces of luggage for a great price!  Can't wait until my vacation so I can use it!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I never travel for longer than two weeks and haven't gone any where cold for a few decades so I am good packing a pair of shorts, jeans, for under armour t-shirts, four pair of underwear, one polo shirt, Asics running shoes, one dress shirt, hair brush, toothbrush, and a pair of socks into whatever back pack currently carries my computer. I wear a pair of shorts, t-shirt, polo shirt, sweat shirt, teva sandals, G Shock watch and a Wisconsin Badger's baseball cap turned backwards. This covers all occasions, can be carried on and fits under the seat in front of me. I have yet to pay any luggage fees for my own personal items. My wife will fill two large suit cases for a four day trip. My kids have followed my lead although I usually have to make sure that they clean the clothes before they pack them.

I bought new luggage ( 3 pieces, large, medium and carry on) 6 years ago, when I went on 10 day trip to Ghana, I carried the largest and carry on only, I roll clothes to save space and also use these clothes type smaller bags which I packed different types of clothing in each and just dropped in the large suit case; again to save space! In carry on whenever I travel, I  always have a complete change of clothing or two  in my carry on in case the airline misplaces the checked luggage! ??? Now days with having to pay to check  luggage; I try to mix and match;  one pair of jeans can be worn several times with different tops!  hope this helps, happy traveling.

I have a couple of nice size suitcases that someone gave me and they are a good quality suitcase. I used it once when we went to see our kids on vacation and they are not too heavy even packed with stuff

I have luggage that is fairly new, not more than 5 years old. My old luggage was in such bad shape we got rid of it and bought two new bags. One was from Costco and it is the largest bag you can legally get in an overhead bin on an airplane and the other is a big bag designed for car trips and train or bus trips where there is no size limit.

My luggage is less than 5 years old (I have a 3 piece set) and my 19 years old daughter bought a carry on for herself, but I do travel at least once a year to visit my in-laws out of the country.  Last year the whole family went (4 adults 2 grand children) and I ended up having to buy more (I got another 3 piece set), we where allowed 2 suitcases each (minus 1 baby than did not pay) plus carry on, the lady at the counter was very impress that we did not take our carry on with us and checked all of it.  Seriously, we were going for 3 weeks but still who the hell is going to have 10 suitcases.  So far the luggage all looks good and the newer luggage are light weight with good rolling wheels, the best

    My luggage is brand new. For under $50 you can buy a new 5-piece set of luggage at
    JCPenney when they go on sale. Watch your local newspaper or look it up on their website.
    Sometimes, they are only $39.99. Save even more by printing JCPenney coupons. These
    5-piece luggage sets are stronger and have really good sets of wheels.

I had basic bags but purchased nice bold luggage over 10 years ago so I could pick them out when I would fly.  I stopped flying but still use them for my trips.  I can pack for a month if I have to.

Are you talking about suitcases? Or the actual luggage which is the clothes in side of the bags?  I have a suit case and I have had it for probably 30 years.  It is nice and still looks nice.  I do not travel a lot.

You need to be sure of what kind of luggage you take on the trip because you get  charged a lot for it.  When I went to Alaska I just took too pieces, one for the overhead and one for the rest of the  clothes, I only took enough for a week. the  I bought some new clothes there and  sent the others  back  via mail. Yes I went with the intent of buying some new  clothes.  The motels all had  washers for customers, and when  traveling in the motor home  the parks would have them also. So it was  easy for us to have clean clothes and we were  gone for almost  three weeks traveling up there.

Most of my luggage is pretty old. I definitely want to get some new luggage soon, particularly with 4 wheels.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mostly use a duffel bag I got with my Marlboro Miles a very long time ago. I will have too say that it has held up well since I have not smoked in 18 years.
