Hmmmmmmm! Airplane, fly in hunts fuel prices today...AV gas.....PRICE OF BAGS....LMAO....I guess we all have a breaking point......PRICE OF BAGS!!!Trouble is the number of bags I can use! Gets expensive quick!
I do the same. Those insulated meat boxes hold just under the 50# weight limit and weigh next to nothing. Most of the hardware stores in AK carry these insulated boxes and if you save the styrofoam insert and the box, they will last for many trips. Just bring some tape, a marker, and some twine to get it ready for shipment. Some airports require you to open the box before being loaded into the luggage holds, so I don't tape before getting the okie dokie from the airline.I fly back from AK with 2 to 4 coolers every year of salmon and halibut I catch up there (and moose and caribou burger from my buddy) . For about 10 years now I simply have it frozen for at least 24 hrs prior to leaving and use the cheap insulated meat boxes from Walmart to fly home with it. Never lost any meat to thawing
Doesn't save an ounce of weight...until the next bowel movement! It's just packed Tighter!EAt as much as you can before packing and freezing,helps cut down on space and weight...LOL
