    I was once shocked to discover that the TSA considers the gel in your SHOE INSOLES to as no-nos!!!!!!! I mean, really?

    I've heard that some people have had their hummus confiscated!

    Do you take pictures with/of them in your travels, like Flat Stanley?

    These days it seems like I ONLY travel with weird stuff! LOL Most of my traveling is work-related, teaching postgraduate technique courses to other chiropractors. The TSA LOVES me.

    Last trip I had a set of FAKTR instruments (Shop Online - Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion) which are not sharp but could easily be confused for martial arts instruments, a gun-shaped Impac Arthro-Stim that earned a lot of attention (http://simpsonchirocares.com/sites/d...c/IMG_0910.JPG), a portable drop piece (http://www.thulitables.com/images/up...stingBoard.jpg) and a plastic model of a human foot. LOL

    Interestingly, THE FOOT was the only thing they weren't concerned about!

    Technically I believe it does need to go in your 3-1-1 bag. That means 3 ounce tubes. Will they fit?
    My hairdresser can confirm that I spend large amounts of time and cash ensuring that my roots don't show!

    I think the Vegemite tubes in the supermarket might be bigger than 100ml (not anissue when travelling domestically). But you could easily use a Go-toob.

    That is a great idea! I have sometimes thought of taking a tiny bottle of Bombay Sapphire. Get a can of tonic from the FA and voila - G&T!

    OK I just HAVE to ask, since you phrased it that way: "Just in case of what?"

    While I do admit to taking the telescoping backscratcher with me on trips--let's face it, when you get an itch it can drive you crazy--it is not the most unusual item I take with me when traveling. The most unusual item I travel with is........me.

    Yes, but usually in the hotel. It's weird to see grown up adult people with stuffed animals in public. The tower was a one-time deal.

    I sometimes pack a Justin's almond butter packet and a mini bottle of scotch in my 311 bag. That way I can have a snack and a drink on the plane, ha ha.

    I have a little tiny owl...perhaps 3/4 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches tall...that travels with me and is by my bed wherever I am...it makes what ever room "my space." It came from Mexico and was given to me by a wise and wonderful friend, now deceased. This is my travel version of a picture that has hung on every bedroom wall I have ever had...in my whole life (and there've been over a dozen of them). It was a picture my mother had hanging in her dorm room in college! When I was born, the wall needed something and so she hung it. Hanging that picture is a sign of being home. The owl brings that sense too in a much more portable way!

    I can appreciate that. I *LOVE* Stitch (from Disney's animated Lilo & Stitch from several years back; it reminds me of Hawaii, my former home), and I've been known as "that woman who carries a plush backpack" when I've gone to Disneyland with my friends.... but it's the ONLY place I carry Stitch around in, because I carrying a plush around in public is um... yeah.

    My dad is from Eleele, which is near Hanapepe. The last time we were there, we noted that Hanapepe has started marketing itself as "Stitch-town" or something to that effect because I guess the movie was set there. My iPhone lock screen is an uglydog, so I've always got one with me anyway. When we're in Italy he becomes "Cane Brutto," which we figure is an approximate translation.
