UPDATE: Yesterday I brought the IAP Collection to Tucson, AZ with no issues. Went through the regular screening with a box of 30 pens. The x-ray screening went just fine.

Will try to have a cup of coffee with Sharon (Sbwertz).

It figures I can't even make a joke without it getting stepped on. Somehow I doubt that but being you said it ED it has to be true maybe we should send them by email next. That never gets picked off.

You are reading to much into this problem. Loosen up and enjoy the travel and not get dragged down with this anxiety

I went through security with about 40 pens in my computer bag. The TSA official asked me if I knocked off an office supply store! They were very cool about it.

Just getting back to this thread.

I actually suspect you are correct Ed! There were no issues; the screener said, "Oh, a bunch of pens?" I guess if my wife can transport a carry-on with a gas mask, I am OK with some pens.

My main concern was getting to England, or somewhere else, and having issues getting the collection back! I try to avoid any issues, but probably overkill (but... don't want to have to use Toni/Your pen to "bribe" my way back ).

I have carried up to 10 at a time in carry on. They looked close and had me open to verify it was pens. Plan on taking that many to London next month also.

Hi Phil:

Have a nice time. My plans were derailed by my wife's work. They have sent her to San Francisco, Mexico City (Currently), then to Germany/Italy. No budget left for England/Hazelwood.
