I've never had any trouble carrying my camera bag through the security check. It goes through the xray machine fine, no problem. Have a great time!

First off enjoy your trip! You are one lucky guy with the weather in this state for the next week!

I always carry my photo gear on so I know it will get to the destination. Should be no big deal for you, its possible your photo gear will be inspected but I've never had that take more than a few minutes.

I do ask that they not open and or touch anything in my bag unless I am standing right there. Every TSA person has been more than cooperative in that regard.

Check the TSA web site for the latest on battery information, I don't believe that has changed in the last year. I've carried as many as 9 in one bag along with chargers.

Make sure your gear NEVER leaves your sight! If you are sitting and waiting I use my backpack as a footstool. Either you are hanging on to it or someone in your traveling party. You are better off with a bag that doesn't scream photo gear!

Again good luck and travel safe!

The only concern with X Ray machines is if your film speed is over 400 ASA. Wait, that's advice I'd have given 15 years ago.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
