I travel a lot, always have. And one of my real joys in my career (besides getting on stage and astonishing my audiences) is figuring out ways to move my show from Point A to Point Z (stopping in between) as efficiently as possible.
Luckily I found two sources of equipment that make it really easy to do this. The first is a Skyroll - www.skyroll.com - a carry-on case that will hold my entire show or a week's worth of clothes PLUS a suit, and fit in any overhead compartment.
There are no extraneous pockets, zippers or compartments. It's just a heavy duty box.
The second thing I found - and only in the last few months - are the packing cubes from Eagle Creek - shop.eaglecreek.com. They are guaranteed for life and make packing, unpacking and storage so much easier.
I am now able to carry two complete shows, tables, sound and my on-stage suit free as carry-on anywhere!
Now is only I can get an upgrade to first class this easily!
