Tripods + Pelican Case + Checked Luggage = Please Hope?

I need to take a domestic flight tomorrow morning with a Pelican 1510 case (carry-on roller bag dimensions) and two 30" light stands (think tripod, but taller and skinnier). I don't have a bag that fits the light stands. What is the easiest/safest/least-likely-to-get-broken-or-stolen way to make this happen? [more inside]

Mailing from Stockholm to the U.S. – any options other than FedEx / UPS?

Mailing, from Stockholm to a residential U.S. address, an 0.45 lb (0.2 kg) envelope or box that's critical not to lose and ideally should arrive in a few days. Oddly, lowest FedEx quote ($78) is half lowest UPS quote ($166), making me wonder if FedEx site estimator is missing some info that would increase real-world cost. Any options I'm missing? (Would be equally convenient to mail this from Helsinki, FYI – could mail from ARN, from HEL, or from any location in either city's center.)

North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota ... go!

So the Ferg fam is thinking about trying to do a road-trip vacation the middle two weeks in July - original thought had been a trailer-camping trip through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, etc, but we've scratched that plan for this year due to the fact that we would have needed to plan it last year. So maybe that will be next summer. In the meantime, we have the travel bug, and time and (some) money, so are thinking about trying to do the eastern halves of North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and maybe Wisconsin. (Coming from Kansas City, MO.) We've been to Minneapolis, but never really anywhere else in any of those 4 states, so ... what do we need to see/do/know? MeFi has been awesome for prior trip planning, so any suggestions are appreciated. [more inside]

Help me make a camping/travel fun kit for my kids.

My family spends a lot of the summer traveling and at times camping for business reasons, and my kids (ages seven and ten) kind of hate it - or at least they think they do. I want to make a kit of fun, non-electronic, highly portable stuff to try to distract them from their misery. Besides computers, their interests include nature stuff, games, answering questions, reading (especially comics), arts and crafts and not camping. But seriously, stuff to feel more at home or comfortable on the road would be good, too.

How to spend the night before the eclipse this August in Jackson WY?

My partner and I are flying into Jackson, WY the day before the solar eclipse this August. We're really excited to check it out the next day but are behind the curve in planning things so there is absolutely no lodging available around there for the night. Everything I've checked has no vacancies and the few things left on airbnb are >$1000. [more inside]

Where's all the "great" camping and sightseeing spots on these plains?

My family is planning a car trip from our home in the Deep South to Mt. Rushmore. We hope to spend the days sightseeing/doing touristy things and the night tent camping at parks or private campgrounds. None of us have traveled in this area before, so we are all complete newbies to everything Great Plains/Midwest. Could anyone share ideas of what to see and where to camp along a general route of going from Springfield, MO north to Sioux Falls, SD and then across South Dakota to Mt. Rushmore? I'd also really appreciate general advice from anyone who knows how to search online for campgrounds and their amenities along a certain route. [more inside]

Rocky Mountains for the Acrophobic

My family will be traveling to Fort Collins, Colorado in about a month for a wedding. We will be flying into Denver and then driving up. The kids (ages 6 and 11) have never been in the Rockies before and we'd like to enjoy nature and the mountains. The difficulty is that Mrs. WtP has a history of severe acrophobia leading to panic attacks when driving on mountain roads. The acrophobia may be rooted in damage to her vestibular system. (She had severe ear infections as a child, required surgery, and has partial hearing loss in one ear.) [more inside]
