Say what?


We took a chartered civilian jet from the vicinty of Summer Camp - North to Europe the other night. The good news is that we didn't have to go through security at the airport, but instead were able to go right out onto the tarmac and up the stairs onto the plane.

(I've come to believe it's not really worth getting dressed before going to through airport security anymore. They practically strip-search us passengers, but then don't screen the cargo going on the same aircraft. What's up with *that*?)

Because it was a chartered aircraft, everyone else traveling with me was able to bring his/her weapon(s) on board. Lots of pistols and automatic rifles. A real show of firepower, actually.

The bad news was they confiscated our Gerber (or Leatherman) multi-tools, because they were considered a threat.

Say what?

Blessings and peace to one and all,

I hope you all got your Gerber/Leatherman multi-tools back.
