A couple weeks ago, my packet of Travel Documents arrived. In addition to some travel related paperwork, the packet contained a pair of shiny new USAP luggage tags!
USAP luggage tags are something of a tradition; they used to be colour coded based on the season, with some simple text and Tux the penguin. People who have been down multiple seasons often accumulate a rainbow of them on their baggage, which can make Ice people easy to identify en route. It looks like we’ve run out of colours though – this set of tags is identical to last year’s.
So far, my new tags are the most tangible part of my plans to head South. With the federal shutdown over (for now…), there will hopefully be some news soon!
