Hi,

If anyone is traveling from California to Bangkok Thailand and is traveling light. I have a piece of luggage (all clothing) that I need sent here. I am willing to pay and offer any assistance on your trip as well. I can help you find the best reasonable accommodations and guide you to where you want to go and can also offer translation. I am from California but live in Thailand.

Thanks,

Gibs

Well good luck with that offer. With tightened airport security and drug smuggling a major problem in both countries, I don't recommend anyone taking a bag overseas that is not their own. A huge downside for little upside IMO.

Maybe you didn't read the message. I said it is all clothing. I wouldn't expect anyone to do something like this without inspecting all the contents first. I would do the same. It is not the same like asking someone to carry a sealed package with unknown contents.

In addition I would be meeting the person at the airport as well. So if there was something stupid as you suggested, do you think I would go meet at the airport?

I agree with Mike, in this environment of suspicious transport issues, any request like this would be looked at with doubt in anyone's eyes! I believe FedEx and UPS serve Thailand from Calif.

Thanks for all the comments you clowns. I wouldn't ever pay fedex $1300 to ship a suitcase. It would be cheaper to fly there and pick it up myself. But you morons only can post negative crap. So puck yall.

Hi Gibs

Why don't you send it by sea. I don't mean to be insulting, but I agree with the others that it's incredibly dangerous for somebody to take any goods to another country, especially an asian country, on behalf of a stranger.

Yesterday a man was taken into custody from Denpasar airport as there was 1.7kg of amphetamines secreted in the suitcase he was carrying which had been loaned to him by a friend. Whether his story is true or not, that is the sort of thing that can perhaps happen. He will face the death penalty for this.
