General Info Get to the airport - RnB We'll use Jumbo and pack at the airport. $0.00 NOTE that Tannis says she'll drive us to the airport. Confirm with her a few days ahead and cancel parking reservation if that's going to work out.

1) Throw the bike rack on Jumbo
2) Throw the bikes on the bike rack
3) Throw the bike bags, bike boxes and packed boxes of gear into Jumbo
4) Drive to YEG
5) Brent drops Rhonda and all the stuff off at the airport, then leaves Jumbo in long-term parking
6) Brent returns to airport and we pack the bikes into the bags
7) We check in with our bagged bikes, and boxed gear
8) If WestJet says !!!NO!!! to the bags, we swap the bikes into the boxes. If they say yes, we dispose of the boxes

NOTE from Joerg re: packing the bikes into the bags:
Yes, that’s the clear tape you can get cheap at Dollarama. It holds very well, but you will be able to remove it without ripping the plastic. I also used some shrink wraparound the middle to make it more compact, but that was probably too much. Just shove the bike in after “partially deflating the tires, taking off the pedals and setting the handlebars in line with the frame, and you’re good.
