Nope. I'm not allowed to take guns when I travel. Today was a great travel day, though.
I somehow was able to print out a boarding pass on-line (which Northwest Air later assured me was impossible). I joked that maybe it was because I was a "VIP" and apparently they thought that might be the case because they didn't charge me for excess baggage. My flight left early, I had a choice of 30 movies (only one or two good ones of course), they moved me to a seat with no one next to me so I could stretch out, I got fed dinner, breakfast and dinner again, stretched my legs in Tokyo and then here I am... and with all my bags.
So. I'm here. Now for the marathon of meeting with people!
p.s. I didn't try it, but in Japan I saw a brand of water called "Pocari Sweat." Mmmmmm.
