Hi Jim and the group,

I bring a lot of stuff with me on trips to do demonstrations during
seminars, a whole carry-on rolling suitcase full of wires, batteries,
circuit boards, the Mini-Zap, current probes, and the like. All of the
small stuff is packed into 5x7x2 white boxes in the case, 5 of them.
Once at Newark Airport, a security guard made me take it all apart,
everything. I felt like I was giving a semianr at the airport. Most
times I am not stopped at all! Sort of makes you think. I think they
are getting to know me at San Jose Airport.
