So tomorrow I fly to Washington D.C. and then drive to Baltimore for a work conference on underage drinking. We got a big grant to help study the effects drinking has on kids...it's apparently bad for them. I'll know more later. But I know there's been some changes in what you can and cannot bring on the plane. I was just going over the list on the Transportation Security Administration's website (http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm) and these items surprised me.
Ice Axes/Ice Picks
Bow and Arrows (not sure if you can bring them seperately)
Parts of guns and firearms
Realistic replicas of firearms
Axes and Hatchets (not just ice ones, any ones!)
Black jacks (huh?)
Stun Guns/Shocking devices
Realistic Replicas of Explosives
Cheese in pressurized containers
Yogurt or gel like food substance
No gel like shoe substances....I shall not be gellin' like a felon...
