The "hand wipe-down. Without a new pad" what's that all about? Never heard of this security procedure before?[/QUOTE]

Handswabbing is done to see if you've been a naughty person and handling explosives - http://articles.cnn.com/2010-02-17/t...s?_s=PM:TRAVEL and http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trave...-swabbing.html.

Of course, asking for a new swab was within my rights. A shame the TSA staffer ignored them as usual as she kept on chatting to a colleague...

Thanks HIDDY

Great report, thank you so much!
It's a great tour isn't it BingBongBoy - actually, one I would happily do again (my camera has a different opinion... 16GB of memory went that day)

Glad you enjoyed it BingBongBoy!
