Just back from the Conquest! I put luggage tags on two cases of water and 2 twelve packs of Diet Dr. Pepper. (We had a big group). I also got some sports bottles with tight snapping tops and put a fifth of vodka, tequila, brandy and cointreau in them. Wrapped them individually in plastic grocery bags along with 3 bottles of sweet and sour and 1 bottle of cranberry juice. Secured all of this in several garbage bags. Put a pillow in the bottom of the suitcase, then the drink stuff and a pillow on top. All of it arrived intact, except that a couple of bottles of water had fallen out. Plus, I had MY pillows to sleep with!
