    Do you fly alot? Do you find that the airports have lost your luggage a lot?

    I've lost more luggage coming home than going to places. The airlines have been very good in delivering it within 24 hours.

    Flown lots, but have never had lost luggage.

    I make sure I take off all the old tags. I have heard that one major reason for lost luggage is confusion due to old tags left on luggage from previous trips.

    No, never lost any. But don't psychologists and some ministers say we need to get rid of some baggage?

    When DH's familyu got together for a reunion last year, one of his sister's bags was "delayed."

    One of our bags got torn up. But the baggage claim office for our Airline had replacements available. We just chose one of those, repacked, and went on with the trip.

    Repacking was a breeze, because we were using the bags that you smush the air out of after you pack'em.

    I had some lost coming home from Europe, but they delivered it when it came. At least I was home, so I didint need any stuff.

    And once going to Boston, it got lost. I was on a trip with the seminary, and the airline company gave us all vouchers to go buys some new clothes. I looked at it as God's provision!

    The first year I went to Ukraine, I only packed a couple of changes of clothes--only one dress. It was not a pretty sight to wear a dress with out washing it for three days in a row--it stood on it's own. That dress never was the same.
