Hi cruisey... Nah I barely paid anything at all: My parentals paid for most of it as a Chrissy present. It wasn't that expensive anyway. Yeah, the damage issue was something to think about, but the person that sold it to me said they were fine. I was actually going to get another type that was more expensive and she told me not to cause they always come back from overseas ruined. Plus, the one I have actually has insurance for incidents where they are damaged by airlines.. =)[br][br]The sleeping bag things is going to be such a pain!!! I'm doing an Egypt tour before Europe, so flying around everywhere with a bloody sleeping bag... urghhhhh...[br][br]Pharaoh's Footsteps: Oct 18th, 2008.[br]Winter European Getaway: Nov 25th, 2008.
