SUGGESTED PACKING TIPS
To stay within your weight limit of 100lbs we have a few suggestions:
Have your group share some items, i.e., bug spray, shampoo (or use travel sizes) sunscreen, rod holders, etc
Plan your meals together. Canned food adds weight, while frozen foods keep your coolers cold. Empty canned goods into Ziploc bags or plastic containers. Saves on weight and trash
Plastic, tin, or glass? If you have a choice between purchasing plastic, tin or glass, go with plastic, it’s lighter and easier to dispose of
Use frozen concentrate or powdered juice crystals
Replace your batteries at home
Remove extra packaging on your new gadgets
Smaller coolers and boxes fit in plane easier. Lots of small cardboard boxes work better than plastic bins.
Duffel bags for clothing works well
Place loose items together in a box
Walkie talkies are great for groups
Limit your number of rods and tackle to what you expect to use and share rod cases
Label all boxes and coolers with group name.
