Turkey Trot Your Way
Through the Airport
by Joy Ross, Travel Journeys
Room in your suitcase for Mr. and Mrs. Gobble-Gobble? Who are we kidding, we know you always travel with extra room in your carry-on, right, just in case you need to transport the Thansgiving feast by home. So, fear not, the cooked avian creature can tag along in your carry-on at the airport.
Stu ng, aka, the power side-dish of champions
Super foods got nothin’ on Thanksgiving stu ng! Whether it’s pineapple cranberry stu ng, vegetarian blueberry stuffing, or whatever other gourmet powerhouse stu ng concoctions you’ve created, these are welcome guests in your carry-on bags. Pack it up and to grandma’s house you go!
Thanksgiving sides and desserts, oh my!
Thankful for yummy Thanksgiving pumpkin pies, green beans, and yams? Who isn’t?! You’ll be happy to know that calorie-rich sides and desserts are  ne and dandy to bring in your carry-on. Just make sure that any dishes containing liquids follow the 3-1-1 rule.
Yummy antioxidants... are there cranberries in there?
Whether it’s homemade (booyah!), or straight from the superb aluminum can itself, cranberry sauce is good to go in your checked bags. Since this festive sauce would be subject to the 3-1-1 rule, make sure to pack it in your checked bag if it’s over 3.4 ounces!
A bottle of bubbly or merlot anyone?
Oh, the joys of family get-togethers and holidays... thank goodness for chardonnay! We know that you know about the 3-1-1 rule already. Which means, check yo’ bottles, in yo’ checked bags.
But how are we gonna open that vino?!
So many bottles of wine and so little time. Fear not, my pilgrim wine connoisseurs, there are several types of corkscrews that are allowed in your carry-on bags. However, if your corkscrew has a blade, please place it in your checked bag and make sure that it’s securely sheathed or wrapped.
On the rocks – Ice-ice baby
Remember, if you are planning on packing your19
sumptuous Thanksgiving dishes on ice, or if you’ve decided that this is  nally the year to present the family with the ultimate iconic ice sculpture for the holiday table setting, the ice needs to remain frozen so it sticks to the 3-1-1 liquid rules.
I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving wherever your travels take you!
