You were right next door to my home town of Athol!! I know the area well. Wait a minute...
You were out this way and didn't tell any of us?!!!!
Springfield is just an hour & a half away. I was up to my sister's Christmas day just 15 or 20 minutes away.

Sorry to hear about your troubles with the TSA and good luck with your claim. I hope that you had a good time up here, it is a pretty section of the state.
