So I got a Thunderbird (lefty) and need to take it out next week, but won't have the Mono case I ordered yet. I'm going to have to take it out in its huge hardshell case. The NYC subway is worse than ever with crowding and I'll have to take it to work in the morning. Any suggestions on how to make this as smooth as possible? I'm thinking of coming to work really early so the train will hopefully be emptier. Thanks.
