I was on a mission, and down 1 traveler (and 2 more suitcases).  I brought
two suitcases, and returned with 50.1# in one, and 50.2# in the other.
Brought back lots of cider (Had to leave some with Wes G, as my bags were a
bit overweight)  Bringing dangerous things like calipers on planes has made
TSA have concerns.  I expect to return, or call CH, or send my daughter, if
there are any particulars I think I need.

Unfortunately, just a plain 425, per the 1938 catalog.  Still need to
figure out how the back side is useful.
