Rick just didn't look right after Bighorn, I flew from same airport same time same packets - and nothing...may be it's him? :)
On a serious note, I was searched at SFO on my stop-over to Silver State and they didn't even like the gels and Albuterol inhaler, forget all those (same) packets. They said if I put it in baggage I'd be better off, but I prefer to carry all the neccessary stuff with me, just in case (so I don't end up buying everything like you did in Reno:)) Just arrive early enough to not miss a flight with a search and questioning.

Thanks for reposting and spreading the word Scott. Don't give them any excuse to detain you. A couple of friends commented that you should have the freedom to package things the way you want them. Well sure, they'll let you go if all's good and clean but I doubt they'll pay to rebook your ticket if you miss your flight. God forbid you bought them through Cheap Tickets or a similar outfit.

Thanks for the warning--you guys can take credit ...

Thanks for the warning--you guys can take credit for saving someone from missing their flight for sure. I posted this little story on Rick's blog too:

I got pulled over for going straight through a right-turn only lane that surprised me driving through Livermore after Ohlone last year. The officer saw my grimy shirt and race number and asked if I just ran a race. He was impressed with my answer of 31 miles over the hills from Fremont and let me off with an urging to be more careful and a congratulations.

But then again, I didn't have any suspicious packets of white powder on me...



Wow. Good thing there was no cavity search.
