RE-ASSURED: [WarOf1812] NEW ORLEANS-JANUARY 2006
- Michael, Peter, Steve;
Great advice. I will check into the train option. I guess I was suffering from CNN overload.
Your points summarized below would make a good start at a checklist for re-enactors planning to fly. Perhaps we could assemble a guidebook for new re-enactors in the Files section to document the hundreds of years of practical experience that has been accumulated.

Having just coordinated 20+ people flying from the United States and Canada ... flew out of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Mobile, Chicago and Toronto ... airline approved (lockable) gun boxes ... removed the locks from our muskets ... made sure the muskets were well cleaned ... cartridge boxes were free of any powder ... edged weapons were stored in the gun boxes ... copy of the policy that black powder weapons are exempt from any permit or licensing requirements ... used common sense ... avoided "joking" with officials at all times.
