Thank you! I am good on the meds - its how I always do it. I am just concern about having enough room for everything returning since GKTW suggest have an extra bag for goodies. I thought too, I could just mail a box home. I am already at my limit with carry-ons probably, so I would need something big enough to safely check. It sounds like from what you are saying, that I should just pack in a duffle bag; although, the ones I have are not the best quality for checking. Back to the drawing board. I think I will just see if I can fit one in.
