Do you have any tips for what to do with traveling and how to prefer food or what to buy?

[Aajonus]

Well, in my Recipe Book, I have the traveling suggestions. Take your butter and cheese absolutely. Possibly honey, but butter and cheese, absolutely.

Butter, to get it through the airline, always take it on carry on, never put it in your storage bags. The storage bag goes through radiation, which is about 40 - 50 x-rays worth of radiation. So, you have to carry it on and if it goes through the hand scan one time, it's not going to harm it. You carry through.

Butter has to be refrigerated, so you take cold butter on because if it spreads, they argue. And I say, "Well, this is not a liquid". They've tried to take it from me several times. And I say, "It's not liquid, it's solid".

And the honey too, I'll put it in the refrigerator overnight and then it's solid, so I take it through, "It's solid, what are you talking about"? But I carry a letter from a doctor, from an MD and I write letters for patients and that's $50 from the letter lasts about three months, and you can take anything. I've taken a gallon of milk on.

I tried that and they rejected it.

[Aajonus]

Was it out of Los Angeles?

[Attendee]

Yeah, LAX.

[Aajonus]

Only LAX do they give you trouble, but what you have to do is you have to be very insistent. You say, "Listen, I'll get very sick. Please read the letter. You'll have to understand it and if you don't have the authority, please let's call your supervisor". And if that person rejects say, "Please, can I speak with your supervisor"?

And let me tell you, by that time they want to get the hell rid of you. Sometimes it's taken me 45 minutes to get my food cleared, but only twice out of two years was I stopped. So, it went through the hand X-ray one time, if it goes through twice, I won't eat it.

Well, they put that thing on it once when I took the tuna from Rawsome, I don't know what they did, some kind of a scanner thing.

[Aajonus]

That's just a metal detecter.

[Attendee #2]

Okay. So, it's not a big deal?

[Aajonus]

No, they're detecting whether there's a metal in there. Most of the time, what they do is they take these little sticks and they have me open the bottle and they hold it over and put the thing on there, so it's not nitroglycerine.

[Attendee #2]

So, you're saying, take it on your person through the hand thing, not put it in your bag.

So, you put it in your carry on? That's okay?

[Aajonus]

There's x-rays in that too, but that's very minimal.

[Attendee #2]

So that's okay?

[Aajonus]

It's not okay. It's best if you don't, but if it goes through one time, I'll still eat it.
