Excited?! You betcha!
I have just spent the evening packing, and I’m hoping the girls at Tiger will smile lovingly on me. We have purchased 20kg of check-in baggage each, plus have a cabin allowance of 10kg each.
In reality, we have the following:
Scuba Gear (Colleen) plus clothes – 14kg
Scuba Gear (David) – 15kg
Tools and Fishing Gear – 11kg
Colleen’s Carry-on – 7kg
Colleen’s Purse – 3kg
David’s Carry-on – 7kg
David’s laptop – 2kg
We should be right on our limit. I hope the cheap-ass luggage scale is accurate!
In addition, I will be wearing a weight belt with our 20Kg of scuba weight tied around my waist. I also have about $80 in $1 and $2 coins, plus books in my pockets. The plane will bank best on the side I am sitting on!
I intend on taking heaps of pictures above as well as below the water, and will have the chartplotter running hot to generate data I hope to present here.
See you in a couple of weeks!
