    The hand inspection takes 2-5 minutes. The "special search" of everything else is what takes the time.

    If you entrust a tripod to luggage handling equipment you're braver than I? May I ask what sort of case you put it in?

    I've always asked for a hand inspection kindly and treated those idiots with respect. Only once have I been told "I don't go by those rules!" at LAX. Tripod goes in a hard suitcase with my clothes I slide it into a leg of my fleece pants and pack undies/shirts around it. Head removed, goes in carry on.

    Dear Benveniste,

    I have a well and septic and never put chemicals down the drain. I drop them off at a household waste disposal place in Chicago (there are closer ones to me, but I like a restaurant near there). If you have a friend in Boston, they can drop it off for you here.
