I also an thinking of packing an empty duffle in to bring stuff home. So many decisions.

I have a soft-sided carryon with no wheels (more packing space) that I bought from e-Bags for my MF trip. I was able to pack a week's worth of clothes in that sucker, plus 2 pairs of shoes! It has straps so you can use it as a backpack, and tiedowns inside and out to condense the bag into a smaller size, so it fits even the most stringent airline's carryon requirements. Of course, you have to watch the weight on it...mine got pretty heavy!

I have shoulder issues after I broke mine a couple of years ago, so I really need the wheels. And going for 10 days I don't think there is any way I can get away without a checked bag.

I don't know what I'm going to do about luggage either. I don't want to take anything really big because of the space, but then again, I will need something bigger than what I normally take because of all the "goodies"

I like the idea of packing an extra duffle bag. I might just take my regular sized suitcase and then an extra duffle bag to carry stuff home in. Since I don't have to worry about flying then I can put out more than one bag.

I think that solves the problem!!!!

You wouldn't like mine, then...my shoulders were killing me on the way home. Of course, I was RUNNING through the airport with mine on my back, and my personal item wasn't that light, either.

I think my DH and can get away with the one carryon and one large checked bag, and 2 smaller personal items. That is what I'm aiming for this time.

Plus I am still debating bringing the laptop, theoretically to take care of photos. This time I will hopefully remember to bring the card reader that I didn't bring for Mousefest. And then there is the aforementioned camera and the bag it comes in. And I am still trying to find the perfect camera bag. Its kind of like trying to find the perfect park bag. Still looking.
