I did a bit of digging around this morning. Here is what TSA said.
"Weight and Size Allowance:
Maximum weight is 50 pounds and maximum size is 62 inches (length + width + height) per checked piece of luggage. Effective for tickets purchased on or after December 15, 2012, for travel on or after February 13, 2013, overweight items from 51 to 100 pounds and oversized items in excess of 62 inches but not more than 80 inches (e.g.; surfboards, bicycles, vaulting poles) will be accepted for an overweight and oversize baggage fee of $75 per item. For tickets for travel before February 13, 2013, or for tickets purchased prior to December 15, 2012, overweight and oversize baggage fee is $50 per item. Any item weighing more than 100 pounds must be shipped as Air Cargo."
So a one piece should be good ? Unless you are 12 feet tall and require a 81" wading stick. In that case please just walk,jump,or skip you will get there much faster with such long legs anyway. Am I missing something here ? I have been getting many emails asking about this subject, and I would like to know what to tell them....
