    I refuse to fly. Period.

    My last road trip, I packed my Gem 1912 in the wood case, ten Ted Pellas in the blade box, and my boar brush in a pickle jar (with a ventilated cap). I broke a piece of motel soap in half & lathered up in a paper cup.

    It looks like you have a lot of fun set ups for travel.

    It doesn't get much simpler than that.

    Very nice. In about 7-10 days if I travel I'll have a nice Travel Razor courtesy of the raffle.

    I don't travel often but spend summers in Cambodia and Vietnam. I'll bring a handful of razors to give to friends, one of which I'll use while there. I have a couple of Schick H razors I'll bring this year among others. Synthetic brush and sturdy IKEA tin of soap .[​IMG]

    Here's mine. Goes into hold luggage if flying; no problems so far!

    My travel kit. I vary the soap and razor, but pack the same brush and strop.

    I have a Van Der Hagen razor, Van Der Hagen soap, Gustaufson badger brush and Cremo that I use as a preshave. I have a case that I put my razor in ($5 Amazon find). The only time I wont take this kit is if Im flying because you cant take razor blades on a plane and I dont trust being able to find DE blades when Im traveling.
    Its just easier to go to some little corner store and buy a disposable cart and a can of shave foam.

    So how many of you would rather check a bag than go without your wet shaving gear?

    I don't fly for work just pleasure so checking luggage is no problem. No pressure

    Then I would have to change jobs.

    But I agree, flying is a depressing affair. Especially when you have to do it almost every week. Having checked luggage only makes it worse.
