TKMJ,

I got around that too.

I have had special plastic boxes made for all our travelling technical equipment. I have hotglued foam lining inside to conform to each piece.

Our travelling crates look just like a box except they are white and plastic. (sounds a bit like an old flame *L) They can be custom made at major box stores.

For the poles, I just tie them together in bunches of 50 lbs. (domestic), 70 lbs (international) for air shipping. We have never had a problem yet.

All of our audio gear is loaded in flight approved ATA shock proof rack cases. Some of the electronics are a bit touchy. We use castor dollies and hand trucks to move it around. Some of the power amps alone weigh 70lb. each. When I say we haul a ton of stuff to do sound at a powwow, I really mean a ton (2000lb.). LOL

We have had problems over the years with the guys at the airport concerning damage and loss. They always pay up but the hastle we have gone through isn't worth it.

For us it's Rack It, Stack It, Pack It and POWWOW!!! From the time we get on site and parked to the time the first CD is played through the sound system before Grand Entry, It take 2 ndn and 2 hours give or take. We have it down to a science. Including making coffee and a smoke break. Some dancers take longer to get ready! LOL

I'm always ready to powwow

Ken

All the cases are weatherproof just in case some drum gets the idea to do the water song. Yes! It has happened. LOL

Because this thread concerns tipis and we are getting off the subject a bit, I must say that we haul all of our equipment in out "tin tipi" or tote a trailer behind it. We have used the "tin tipi" for many things at a powwow. We have used it as a first aid station, to an area where an elder just needed to cool down a bit using the air conditioning. We have used the microwave to heat baby bottles, and have held elder meeting in it. One time we even used it as a haven for a batter spouse at a powwow. It's usually opened to anyone who has a special need.

Today we just put it up again (took it down for winter).

Revisiting this post, I decided to post again.

My old 14 footer, I gave away to my daughter, her husband and their son a couple of years ago.

I still have my 19.6 Reese Tipi and still setting it up at powwows, schools, festivals, etc.
Using it as a display, I'll put in all the furnishings (leanbacks, tipi bags, parfleche, etc).
Using it to just camp in, I might put all the furnishings inside it or I might not, it depends on my mood.
I must admit, I prefer having all the bags and leanbacks in it.

And I still have my two little 18 inch tipis to show people how to set up a tipi when we're sitting inside the larger tipi.
