have you flown recently?

my camera is a BATTERY EATING MACHINE. My son and I are taking a short day trip on a plane next month (only 24 minutes in the air!!!!!!) but heading to a large international airport. If I have a crapload of batteries in my purse is that going to be a problem? Obviously I plan on taking tons of photos and videos of my sons experience and want to be prepared

  • You might want to call security at the airport before you go just to be sure. I'm not sure how to answer that one!

  • What airline are you using? Check out their website and they should have a list of acceptable items for carry-on. Good luck. :)
