I'm trying to find out if there will be any problem taking my full length (non breakdown) paddle. I heard from a Continental rep that there is a BIG charge for paddles but have also heard otherwise from rumorville. If anyone has info please let me know. Matt

Although this doesn't help erdvm1, for anyone else going to Ecuador, American Airlines let me take 2 full length paddles in a paddle bag, checked on as oversized luggage with no extra cost. On another note, getting a kayak flown down there has apparently become nearly impossible. Continental and AA currently have "no kayak" policies, although I have heard of people getting lucky with the surfboard routine. Small World Adventures rents boats down there, and I heard of a couple of boats for sale in Tena.

Thanks guys. That helped a ton. I'm packing the wood in a ski bag and crossing my fingers. That picture of wileycoyote is making my stomach knot ;-)
