    Good morning;

    Sounds like David Goldfarb will have no difficulty if the temperature in the cabin goes very low. Will he be going on West to visit the relatives in Hilo?

    I take a Bogen/Manfrotto 3021-S and a small head inside of my airline carry-on bag along with my clothing. The cameras go in a backpack that I wear. So far, the only thing I have had questioned is the fanny pack with my wallet and some tools. The tools get them every time. I think that the tools serve as a diversion from the backpack.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Alas, not. The relatives are in Honolulu actually, and my wife and son are visiting them while I'm at my conference, but we'll meet up in Las Vegas where my parents live afterward. As I posted elsewhere, my best laid plain of buying more 220 film (didn't bring a 120 insert) has gone awry--no TXP/220 at Gasser's or Calumet here in SF, so I ordered some from Freestyle, and it should meet me in Vegas. Plenty of 35mm, 120, 4x5," and even 8x10" available, though.

    Checking in from SFO, same deal as post #19, small tripod in the carry-on, 2x3" Tech V kit in an Urban Disguise 50 bag, no checked luggage, and no problems checking in. They gave the camera bag a sniff with a handheld detection device before it went through X-ray, but other than that, no special attention. I think the fact that the Urban Disguise bag looks like an ordinary laptop bag helps.

    I pack my tripod in my suitcase as I've seen how the luggage folks handle your stuff while doing their jobs. It use to be packed in a seperate padded case along with some other soft items to give extra padding . . . that was until the adjusting knob on my Kirk ballhead got bent due to lack of care on the part of the airline employees.

    When I check the tripod, I leave the knobs loose and use a Tenba TTP 34 case. I've watched from the window as it's been tossed on the ramp, and I once saw it go flying off a baggage truck as it made a sharp turn to line up with the luggage ramp, and I've never had anything damaged.

    Last leg of the trip--Las Vegas to JFK, same setup, but this time traveling with wife and toddler, so we've got more stuff with us and one checked bag. No questions at security about the tripod. X-ray inspector asked if I've got some "heavy duty camera equipment" in the camera bag, but no more than that. The diaper bag got the full explosive swab test, because it had a sippy cup with some water in one of the side pockets.

    On my trips between Europe and Brazil I put my 055 tripod in my suitcase: it can be used as a weapon (baseball-bat) and neither KLM or BA
    don't like that.
    On the other hand they were curios about my table-pod, one that stores the legs inside the tube, but it gave me no problemm.

    It is a matter of thinking "safety" and thus avoiding problemms.
