...ok, so in four days I'm getting on my very first airplane...ever. I've gotten most of my questions answered already, but a few more have popped up. So...I know I'm allowed one carry on (under a certain size) and one personal item (my camera bag). Now...if I bring a bottle of water and a banana or some other snack...would that be included as a personal item? Should I shove them in my pockets? Or will that not be allowed either!? I'm clueless really. Someone told me that flying really dehydrates you though, and you should bring a bottle of water. Also, we'll be leaving home at 3:30am so we won't really have much time for breakfast. I'll have a banana or somethign before we leave, but I really don't think we'll have time to eat until late...we go straight from the plane to the Capitol tour...so...yeah...just a few questions. If I think of anything else I'll post.
