Cheap travel!! (09 Sep 2003 at 17:02)
Yes, someone has really done it: He shipped himself from Dallas to New York in a cargo crate, pried himself out of the crate in front of his parents' house, shook the stunned deliveryman's hand, and then got arrested on outstanding warrants.

It turns out, the cost for freight was $550, which would have easily bought a first class ticket!
