I'm packing for an extended overseas trip which I have never done. AND I have traveled so little since 9/11/01 that I'm still fuzzy on all the restrictions. I've been to the TSA website and seem to have liquids under control.But what about metal? I have these little pockets down the pants I'm wearing that I want to put some stuff in to make my bags lighter since I have shoulder/arm problems. In particular I have rose salve in a metal container I want to take because you can use it on lips, hands, face, etc. And will light-weight metal like the type wrapped on gum or granola bar be a problem? What about a zipper on a little pouch? And I have a stylus for an iPad that has metal--will that be a problem? I don't want to put these little things in a big checked bag because they could fall out if the bag is ripped and especially I don't want to lose some things like the stylus as it belongs to my daughter whom I am visiting.My sister had a huge rip in her bag when she went to Sweden and she lost all her over the counter medicine. I think the baggage handlers ripped it on purpose and took the stuff.Oh, and what about screening electronics? Shouldn't I ask them to not x-ray those things? I have a laptop, camera, iPod, some SD cards, USB drives, chargers, etc. that have little bits of metal. What about those? I have a back pack with my medicine and laptop, etc., but it is getting very full. And I got a money belt--thanks salaryguru.Can you think of anything else I should know to get through security?
