Not that there’s anything to hide - just asking.
Be upfront and honest about it. I got the same questions doing a HNL run last year and explained to an incredulous officer how I had come all this way , doing multiple segments just for 2 days in Hawaii. May be worth being prepared to explain the cost and benefits of status . I was cheerily waved through in just over 3 mins- didn't need to show any paperwork though I was prepared to if needed.
