I have this new job that will be providing me with a week long training, which is really great. I live in Nebraska, I'm chronic despite all efforts so far, so I have to be very near my oxygen at all times. The company was going to have me go to Nashville, and I figured that I could happily drive it with my 4 or 5 bottles with me just in case. A long drive, but I like adventure. NOW, I hear that the training may be in Florida, which is just too much adventure for a couple of days. Flying would be my only option. I seem to have read here that traveling with O2....especially 5 bottles....takes an act of Congress, and keeping one in the cabin is impossible. Can anyone let me know of their experiences, or their knowledge of this situation? The thought of a week without the only abortive that works for me scares the shit out of me. Thanks for your help.
