I'm starting to think I need plaid luggage. This looks photoshopped though, I need some actual product photos before I add to cart.

That will make it easier to identify your luggage on the carousel, right up until everyone else also uses them (see also "Grey or Black rolling flight bags", "Christmas ribbon tied to handle")

Waring, PA of course.

If I could (1) keep the sweat out of my eyes [same problem with cycling] and (2) not have my skin get roasted, mowing on 90F days would be great.

And if my grandma had wheels she would have been a bike.

I don't see what I would consider recombobulation supplies, but it's nice they have an area dedicated to the task in the Milwaukee airport.

Not necessarily.

I'd want to arrive on site 5 minutes before dawn personally.

Heat kills.

What are the recombobulation essentials?

Back when my Dad was 91, we were visiting. It was summer in PA, one of those 90 degree days with high humidity where simply walking to the car leaves you bathed in sweat. We were all in the house, hanging out as close to an air conditioner as we could. I had a question for Dad, so I looked for him all over the house, but couldn't find him. I walked out the the garden - which you can't see from the house - and there he was, in 90 degree heat, on his hands and knees, weeding the garden by hand.

He was one tough old bird, my Dad.

Most important is a map with an arrow that says "You are here."
