After Northwest's announcement this week that it will be jumping on the bandwagon to charge people for their first checked bags, it seems as if increased luggage fees are here to stay. So finally, after all these years of reading about shipping your luggage in advance (and shrugging it off as too involved and possibly too expensive), you may be ready to play.

When going on vacation, would you consider shipping your luggage to your destination instead of taking a chance checking it with an airline?

I don't trust my luggage with people after what happened to my brother. someone stole one of his backpacks which had his Xbox 360 and a bunch of his other gaming stuff that was kinda exspensive. But they workers couldnt be counted for stealing it because it wasnt actual luggage. it was a backpack. But it wasnt on airline, it was on Greyhound bus system. but one of the workers did steal it. we were sure of that.
