Re: air travel questions

Charles…

In 2010, my wife and I flew Alaska Air, Fresno-Seattle-Juneau and back, for a small ship cruise for our 30th anniversary.  I had my E-1, three BLM-1s with charger, one battery for the HLD-1 with charger, some lenses, and an ST-6020 with two batteries, all in my LowePro Flipside 300.  TSA didn't bat an eye.  BTW, the Flipside is an ideal air travel bag because it's narrow enough to sit under the seat in front of you and still leave room for your feet.

Now, when my wife, son, and I flew Fresno-Salt Lake City-Idaho Falls and back  in 2008 for a week in Yellowstone, my son's backpack full of portable ham radio equipment earned him a full inspection.
