I'll be flying in to a conference for the first time. Any fish I'd like to keep from Sunday collecting would need to be shipped. Any ideas how to get packages to a carrier on Sunday for Monday shipping? Are there carriers in the DFW airport open Sunday or does the Hotel have any service? Any ideas how to get a package shipped when flying out Sunday?

Also do they make breather bags longer then 5 or 6 feet just in case I find a nice alligator gar. Just kidding.

Go on the Trinity River while you are there, and you will find Gar that will need a longer bag than 5 or 6 feet. :biggrin:

I grew up just west of Athens in Corsicana, we used to go on the Trinity alot. Where State highway 31 crosses.

I'd call the hotel and ask them. I flew somewhere once and bought a gargoyle, and my hotel helped me ship it home. It was a flying pig gargoyle, I had to have it.

You could also find the location of a local Mailboxes Etc. or office supply store to get supplies and then take them to the post office yourself.

Edit: Ooops. I missed the 'flying out Sunday' part. Our local Mailbox Etc. will ship USPS.

I will look around and see what I can find. You might be able to leave them and your info here with me, and I would box them up and ship them out on Monday. But I will definetly look around and see what I can come up with. See y'all soon!!!

I live in Dallas and would be happy to meet you Sunday or more than like at the conv. I could ship it out for you on Monday. I have shipped hundreds of fish so I have more than enough bags, boxes, and aquariums(holding) to help out.
