RTD's in a Suitcase

Postby MARIE » July 14th, 2006, 10:15 am

Hello all!

I am in the middle of week 2 and we- my family - are going on vacation in about 5 weeks. I really want to stick with the plan, so I was going to order and take a bunch of ready-to-drink shakes in my suitcase. Are they going to explode in the luggage hold of the airplane or in any other way break apart in my suitcase? :whattha:

I packed RTD's in my suitcase and checked it. No problems at all. I would make sure they can't bounce around, though. I packed shoes and stuff around them.

Hi Marie,
Depending on what kind of suitcase you have, and how rigid it is, you might want to cut some panels of cardboard to line it with to give them a little more protection.

Also, many times when the MMT crew travel together, if we're going to be at the same location for a few days, we just have RTD's or whatever shipped there directly.

Extra-large ziploc's are now available. Just an extra measure of protection in case of leakage. Whenever traveling overseas, I pack all liquids in ziploc's. Just an idea.

Would it be more convenient for you to bring packets and get/buy a water bottle(s). You could always drink some of the water and then add the packet in for shaking room. I am just thinking of the space you'll need and weight restrictions. Then, if onn the road, you can always dump the bottle or save it for a re-fill.
Don't really care as long as everything's better than yesterday was...

I travel ALL THE TIME and have only had RTD trouble once...apparently the TSA decided to STAB a rtd to see what it was...and left it in! The other 100 flights I've taken have been fine!

Thank you all for your helpful info on packing RTD's. Etc. I will use your advice to a good end (and hopefully not and end of RTD's being punctured by homeland security, left to leak in my suitcase!)

I took RTDs with me to Italy, they traveled very well. I too put mine in baggies just in case, but had no problem.

Good Luck...
