After reading all the messages, and ours was one of them. We are the couple who wanted to brings some sodas for our room. We certainly don't look at it as "schlepping" as you put it. We are driving to Florida, so we don't have to lug them through an airport. I don't understand the big deal, and why it would affect your life. We are non drinkers and just wanted to have some sodas in our room which has a refrigerator. Live and let live.
