We managed to check in Perry, even though the ticket clerk was a little bit confused as to if she's allowed to do it. I convinced her though! Perry's plane ticket cost $75 (oversize charge). Considering we "saved" $50 by not checking in any additional bags, I feel like we got a pretty OK deal. Hope Perry comes out fine on the other side of the border!
Most of our tools and things got through security without much problem -- except for the pedals! Although once they opened up the bag and found out that the pedals aren't explosive, they let us through.
Now we're eating french fries and hooger J's (Whopper Jr.) and drinking a big coke! Yay coke!
