Hi,

I made an homemade "Go Joe" out of a wheelbarrow inner tube.
I'm leaving soon for Cuba and I was wondering if it was ok to pack the tube fully inflated because I don't know how easily I could find a bike pump there to pump it (don't feel like running around looking for one when I could be kiting).

I was worried about the pressurisation in the luggage section and all those things.

Could someone help?

Thanks

I wouldn't overinflate it, the lack of pressure in luggage hold will cause it to expand. If its fairly flexible it should be all right.

The third world is usually ingenious about engineering cheap and efficient ways to do things like inflate something, fix a tire etc. I'm sure you can get this done in Cuba easily enough (if you speak a little spanish that would help).
