  You land in Terminal A. Your connection is in Terminal C. You pop the handle and race to the elevator. There’s a small family with some big strollers! You unzip the pack straps and jog down the stairs. You make the flight! What a bag! More exclamation points!! If you just can’t jam all of your gear in a carry on, jam it in here. When you hit the long and dusty you can carry it on your back. Then when you come back you can walk the long and dusty airport terminal and wheel it.
