...to say nothing of having to pack the stuff I normally carry on, so if the airline loses my bags I'm not totally screwed and I can take my lenses out at least. Now I can carry on my lens case with solution if it's in a one quart zip-lock bag to be handed to and x-rayed by security. I'm not sure if breathable asthmatic meds qualify as aerosol or not, but I'm more afraid of security not knowing either. So it's either find a-- one quart? ziplock bag, which you know don't come easy in this metric country of mine; or shove it in the suitcase and pray it doesn't get lost.
No, really, there's a reason I don't want to fly down to New York, really and truly there is.
