Now I'll head off to the airport and try this again. This time I have to fly to Denver first but I felt lucky that I got flight out today. I don't think everyone on the cancelled flight did.
Turkey Update: For those concerned about my frozen turkey - I put it back in the freezer last night and even after 6 hours at the airport it hadn't defrosted at all. I adjusted the weight in my bags so that it can go in the checked luggage this time and I won't have to have contraband meat on my person!
