Travelling with gear (and hello)

I've been lurking for a month or so here.  Now, of course, I could use some 
experienced advice and so am driven out of the shadows.

Anyhow, I'm travelling to Germany (from L.A.) in the morning for a two month 
project in southern Bavaria, and I want to bring my recording equipment 
(PortaDAT, couple of DPA omnis, etc.) with me so I can do some work on my 
masters thesis in my free time (meaning, after the project's over).

Now, I haven't done any international travel since last summer (pre-9/11), 
and even if I had I'd like to hear your experience of the best way to pack 
my gear and get it there (and back, with maybe a few additions, I hope).  So 
what's the best, safest, most expedient way to move this stuff around?  Gear 
safety, anti-theft, dealing with the new security world, customs are all 
important aspects.  Do I buy pelican cases?  Carry it on?  Check it in 
luggage?  Ship it over separate?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.
