Thanks for the comments and concern, everyone - I do appreciate how 
the security situation is at the moment, and the reasons for it - 
believe me, I'd rather fly knowing that security is tight than 

I'm already planning to ship whatever is ready in time by mail in 
advance; the only stuff - if any - that I'll actually have in baggage 
(checked-in, not hand luggage, to avoid any problems about pointy 
metal bits...) is perhaps a few advance samples of any last-minute 
releases that miss the postal consignment, and of course they will be 
gifts for the friends I'm meeting over there...

I DON'T intend to have a lot of stuff there, either shipped in 
advance or brought with me. That's what the dealers are coming for, 
I'm just a guest! Any few bits that I do sell, I'll probably be 
spending the money on stuff for myself before going home anyway, so 
it all stays neatly in the US economy....  ;-)

The visa situation seems pretty clear, as it is a pleasure trip (hey, 
you think I'm coming over to WORK....??) one is not needed. At least, 
not yet - there is a big row brewing about the US's demand that they 
be introduced for ALL visits for holders of any new UK passports 
issued after October 2004, unless the passport has all the new 
biometric data, which won't be feasible till 2005 or so.... guess 
what that'll do to Florida's tourist industry....  :-/.

I will double-check with the travel people to make sure that 
nothing's changed since I booked.

I'm coming over to meet some friends (Indy, Jon et al) and attend a 
SciFi convention  (they probably won't understand about gaming...).

PS: does anyone think it is worth me shipping just a few copies of 
the rulebooks over, or will everyone who is coming to the Con already 
have the ones they want? What I don't want is to ship a  load of 
stuff that no-one wants, unless one of the dealers would take any 
unsold copies after the Con....  :-/
