I flew home one year from the Hukilau. I packed two mugs in the middle of my checked bag so they wouldn't get broken. While I was in town for the show I also hit some junk stores and found a great 60s pocket transistor radio and threw that in as well. I guess the TSA didn't like the look of two cylindrical items with a small box of electronics next to it for some reason When I finally got my bag back it had been torn apart and tagged. They left a nasty note inside but other than that everything ended ok.
