I heard about the horrorshow of Magical Express again, and I just had to comment. I've taken ME now four times, and while I've had to deal with a slight delay at the airport, the bus has always been very fast getting us to our destinations. If you use online Check-In, you don't have to worry about lines at the hotel at all. It's a terrific service, and it's always helped me - and other folks who don't drive, or don't like renting cars - tremendously.
Bringing a Laptop
Authored by: TiggerRay on Wednesday, February 03 2010 @ 09:21 AM CST
I have been bringing a laptop for quite a while now. When we've flown, I've had the laptop with me and I just keep it in my padded sleeve and stuff it into my suitcase, surrounding it with clothes. Since we use TSA approved luggage locks I don't worry about anyone 'finding' it in our luggage. When we've driven, I leave it in the car that day and drop off the luggage at Bell Services.
