    Re: Flying with bourbon in your luggage.

    I don't fly internationally and when I fly domestic I fly private. The thought of putting up with what I've seen of the TSA makes my blood boil. I spent 27 years in law enforcement and what the TSA gets away with is murder, we had needed a warrant. Wand raping an 87 year old lady in a wheelchair, a full body pat down of a young child, full body scans. Sorry for the rant but I don't remember any of the above hijacking an airliner on 9/11. As for alcohol I don't have any experience other that some whiskeys above a certain proof are no go.

I have no problem with a tsa agent who wants a little snort, but damn. Close my bottles back tight so I can have one too.
    That's a long way to go for Stephen Foster. I only know of one store that carries it in WI.

    Well there weren't any Iraqis or Afghans with S-W juice on the planes either, but... Wait, this ain't the damn PR&C!!!

    I was up there for a job interview and never saw it and it was great. That was 7 years ago though. It was a good seller in Door County.

    Re: Flying with bourbon in your luggage.

    I used to check a case or 2 of bourbon when I would fly back home out of Louisville. I would put the case box inside another larger box with packing peanuts in between. In Loiusville they inspect the luggage before it is whisked away so I would sit and watch TSA open and rummage through the boxes. Never had a breakage or an issue. Did get so fed up with flying and the regulations that I now drive to KY instead of fly. From Boston.
