Sudden Loss of Cabin Baggage

I wanted to bring this up, since it’s been awhile since I’ve been in a place; just over a year in fact. I’ve just now had to deal with all of the liquid restrictions that have plagued not just the US, but also European flights. These suck a great deal and really are just a bunch of crap to get you to buy more stuff after security check in. I mean really, this has all been debunked. The end result though is that there is a lot less baggage in the cabin. It’s kinda weird. I remember trying to cram my backpack (which was all I used to bring) in to the overhead bins and having a lot of problems, since people would bring mountains of stuff with them. But, all that has changed. Even kids backpacking through Europe have to check their bags now because of these restrictions. The amount of space this has provided is amazing. I wish there was something that I could do with it, but there it sits, above my head, empty. At least my laptop and camera have plenty of breathing room now and won’t get crushed by any Gucci purchases…
