I have no tricks to suggest, but want to add that airlines in other countries can often have even more restrictive limits, so know your weakest weak link. For 20-60x80mm scope and tripod, I've had no problems with checkin. I just got back from Pico Bonito Lodge in Honduras.

Subject: [obol] how to get a tripod to your destination

Hi everyone, I’m have a dilemma: we want to carry-on our luggage for a short trip to Belize including a spotting scope and tripod. However, we discovered the tripod doesn’t fit into regulation carry-on luggage. One of us has a hard-sided regulation carry-on, I have a soft travel pack that is over regulation size but squashable to regulation size.

How do all of you traveling birders get your tripod to your destination? We want to avoid checking it in case it doesn’t arrive and also to avoid having to wait at the carousel.

Thanks for your input!
