ChemE : I'm sure that everyone has gotten their gear out West different ways, and what I've done for at least 3 backpacking trips out there is ship most of my stuff out tere in a big, strong duffel bag to my initial destination/hotel and notify them in advance of the gear's arrival. I've also checked in some gear with the airlines before and had some stuff broken from abuse in handlng. As for cost differences, that would depend on the airline and their baggage charges. I would expect you to do better shipping it. I did when I shipped it via UPS. Do you know yet where you are going? If you are open to ideas, etc... I'll be glad to assist with what I know of the West . email me if you want at memcconk@gmail.com and I'll reply with my phone #

Mike
