I'm from here. Returned to do some work for long time customers. I hope to be going back and forth for work.

Using duration also.

I'm assuming you're driving back and forth, I couldn't see the airlines letting you on with half the tools us painters use

Regal,i hear what you are saying brother. It's not all the work we have, we had soooo many towards the end of the season we just keep going. We have many lined up for spring with more spring bids in the works. We will come to a head here soon. High temps been in the mid forty to mid fifties this week and upper 40's next week. Now thats some exterior painting weather.

They let me take what I brought. A tote inside a gym bag with everyday handtools. You just have to check as luggage.
