As will I . . .
As you know, I love to travel, but with reports of the TSA removing things from checked
baggage for both domestic AND international flights, I no longer feel comfortable traveling with my camera or other expensive electronic items for fear of "losing" them to some TSA or airline employee's desire for the item in question. And don't tell me that doesn't occur either -- people are people and you know the saying about power . . . (See the comments in this post
for several examples. How much of a threat are someone's boots in a checked
bag? Did a screener have "stiletto envy"? And let's not forget your own problems over a T-shirt of all things!)
These restrictions are likely to stay in place, IMO -- just as the shoe removal has.
After a certain point the hassle factor of air travel outweighs the pleasure in going abroad.
I may well end up deciding to travel as my parents did, by bus and car and train and boat. It may be slower, but at least I'll get to keep the items I pack with me without fear of them being confiscated as "terrorist toothpaste".
