    I'm sure TSA would throw out the gel packs. As you stand in the airport in Orlando, all you hear is that "TSA prevents the carriage of liquids or gels aboard the aircraft." These are people who took away my blueberry jelly in Portland, sealed in the container from Stonewall Kitchens. I don't think your gel packs would stand a chance.

    OK how about the cake itself?
    it comes in giant slice 6inch radius 75 degree-sh 5 inch tallish in clear plastic container.
    doused in cream cheese frosting already exceed whatever oz liquid mass if his face-washing cream was consider "liquid" and taken away at Grandrapids Michigan (but passed LaGuardia going out with ease)

    Such an obvious piece of CAKE in a clear container should pass easily, unless the TSA agents are hungry and have a sweet tooth!

    I couldn't bring my gelato today for other reasons, but I got through security with a half full water bottle that I had forgotten about.

    Maybe..... you could buy a couple of those "crack and freeze" ice packs you can get at the drugstore. They should pass through security OK (especially if you limp and claim they're for your ankle) and then you can crack them once you're through and they'll get cold enough to keep that cream cheese frosting from melting. ????

    I like question 11!

    Bears, how long do they give you to complete the hometest?
  • bears and dogsbears and dogs - Posts: 3,076 Senior Member
    ^supposedly about 3weeks.
    This year we were away and either packet gotten lost or never sent on time.
    I waited, then first week of Feb went to the office and got one for him.
    last year it was postmarked Jan 27th. the confirmation letter they sent after initial app is done states;
    end of Jan
    if not received by Feb 11th, contact admission
    thou like the case of Moomin, it takes way longer to get far away. You have to have US mailing address, then that person have to re-send to over seas.
    Also I noted this year, due date was "have to be in by"
    last year RD was postmarked by midnight of the due date, if I remember correctly.
    I did noted few more rules that gotten stingy-er, both in application and for students. There might be some bumping of no-nonsense-ness for real, I used to hear from student teacher he met at CE classes
    "it is hard to fail, like, you don't show up anymore for one..."
