    Nice. How many bags did you check in?

    4 bags; 2 full size suitcases, a regular carry-on size case, and a large flimsy zip bag for the excess clothing and shoes. 24 bottles were still in the original boxes and just heavily wrapped in clothing. The smaller case had a lot of the 650ml bottles and these were all packed in wine skins; never travel without them now! I think the total weight of the beers was around 80 to 90lbs :)

    Thanks for the details. Must've been a bit nerve-racking when waiting for your bags to come out of the belt at baggage claim.

    It was just as nerve wracking watching them loading the cases onto the plane as I could see them just hurling every single case! And I also got through Canadian customs without having to pay a single dollar tax & duty.

    I love Beatification. Haven't tried the Sang Royal yet, but recently got one of those too. Awesome haul!

    2b. learn how to use it again because its not intuitive/user friendly
    4. worry about viruses
    5. PC crashes even though you took precautions against viruses
    6. Buy a new PC every two years (not profiting!)
    7. Mac is the answer!

    I don't use manuals but going back it would take me days to figure out how to work everything. Switching to mac 5 years ago was easy, took me like a day to figure everything out without reading. I'm still using that same computer from when I switched and it still works perfectly, I'd like to see a PC user say that. O yea and I can go to a store and have someone fix w/e is going on instead of having to search the internet and do it myself or mail it god knows where.

    Pretty easy - upload your pics to some media website (webshots, flickr, rapidshare). Copy the URL of the photo, and click the photo button on the post....paste URL.
