Traveling stress and hassle free includes not using baggage claim, regardless of whether it is the holiday season. On a recent trip to MSP,
I was so preoccupied with avoiding baggage claim at my destination, I didn’t pay attention to signs directing to Arrivals. Midnight, curbside and waiting, waiting…realizing I was standing in Departures with no hope of being found quickly in the cold. This was me! Who else has had a long day and done something goofy like this? My husband was circling the Arrival area listening to me saying,” I don’t see you”! Moral of this story? If I had checked a bag and picked it up in Baggage Claim I would have walked out to the Arrival area without giving it a thought. When you are sleep deprived and losing hours due to time changes CHECK YOUR BAGS!
