I've started planning on that.
I have the biggest possible softside expandable carry on and jam the fucker full. Invariably the gate agent asks if I'd like to check it and I say, sure!
All the shit I really want with me is in a small messenger bag. Screw you, Delta, I will not pay $50 to check a bag.
