    This is a tall order perhaps, but next weekend (2/26-28) I'm looking to go skiing for the first time ever... does anyone have any gear my size that I could borrow? Since I've never done any of it, I'm open to skiing or snowboarding. I'm just excited to try. I'm 5'11, 10.5 shoe, large helmet size. The one thing I do have are goggles. Can anyone help a former Florida boy out? I'll do something nice for you in return.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    Ella and Travis, that'd be really great.
    Ella, you say you have gear my size and clothes too? I'll give you a call tomorrow if you're free and we can talk.
    Travis, I'll shoot you an email now. If someone can vouch for me, great. I can also give you my bike for the weekend as collateral.
    Also: pardon my noob here, but how easy is it to break gear? I'm pretty gentle on my stuff, so just curious.
    Thanks for the replies!We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    I just use a foam camping mat. Old school, but has served me well through all seasons.

    You're welcome to borrow it if you want. It doesn't look like it's going to be too cold, so depending on what you're going to be using it for, it'll probably (maybe?) work.unstuck in time

    @ tinyhonks. I have a hard-sided bike travel case with roller-wheels, handles, wheelbags...the whole shebang. It's fancy and will protect your bike just dandy. You can borrow it if you want.

    thing to note - they upped the charges in most airlines to ~$160 per way (as in, $320 RT) for a bike if it's in a box or a hard travel case like that^ one. rob's travel case, if it's available, is under regulation size and so you most likely won't be charged (as long as you don't admit it's a bike - wheelchair! massage table! not bike) but there is the possibility you could be. if you're only going for a week, it might be worth it to see if there are any shops where you are going that you can rent from. it will likely be less expensive unless you get your hands on a freight travel case and less hassle.

    yeah, i took one to chicago & back a few years ago for the sadie hawkins race for $80 each way. this summer i looked at taking my bike with me to colorado when i was going out for my cousin's wedding and it would have cost more than the round trip tickets. rob generously loaned me his travel case but i ended up having the tendonitis/bursitis in my ankle flare up so i left my bike at home and rented a road bike one day towards the end of the trip when my ankle felt better. i admit, for what i was doing (poking around CO vs. doing an alleycat) it was way easier to just rent a bike when i needed it and not have to cart the box/bike around everywhere.

    @artesc, that is just what I'm looking for, do you know the dimensions? I'm flying Alaska and they have a 62 linear inch limit. But the oversize fee up to 100 inches is $50 one way.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I don't think lying about what's in your luggage is a good idea in this day and age...just in case they x-ray it and are like YOU LIEEEEEE OFF TO GUANTANAMO.

    If you've got at least a little money to spare, Home Depot has them for about ten dollars, or they did when I was in Connecticut two weekends ago (I don't know why different stores would have different prices/stock but you never know).

    However, depending on how thick your walls are/what they're made of, you could do the old thump-with-your-fist-and-listen-closely but that also might drum up some unfriendly beighnors.

    Or see if your landlord has the plans for the house, which might tell you the spacing.

    I was mostly suggesting the second ideas, then remembered the first. I'm not sure why I put it first.

    just a suggestion, drill a hole before you put a nail or screw in. i recall when BU's maintanance people did some work in my building, they just drilled screws straight into the wall and ended up making gigantic, ugly cracks because the walls weren't as flexible as they thought. dunno if you've done anything like this before, just sayin'.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe.

    eric, I have a sledge hammer. Tare down your wall, then mark where the studs are. Then put sheet rock back on the walls. Then you will know where all your studs are. Easy as Pie.polo

    Speaking of disguising things and lying about luggage, check this thing out. It's a bike bag for a Bmx that's disguised as a golf bag (most airlines charge extra for bikes but not golf bags). Pretty badass. I've never travelled with my bmx but if I do, i'm getting this out of it's sheer awesomness.
