Touch the Gear is a go!

I will be heading to San Francisco on July 17 to participate in the Outsound New Music Summit's "Touch the Gear" event.
The event will be at San Francisco Community Music Center, 544 Capp Street @ 20th, San Francisco, CA
on July 17, 2011. We were involved last year and it was a great event! Lots of cool setups and you can play them. From this event I got some new ideas of how to use my setup.

Is the "art" getting there?
For this event I am taking the Pick-0-phone and the Boise Bundts + 1.
I am flying to San Francisco. The seven pick heads come to around sixty pounds in a bag. I am sorting through whether to package them carefully or just put a bolt through them and put them in a duffle bag.
The TSA commonly searches all my bags. Perhaps I should put a sign in the bag to explain that I am:
1- Taking these picks to the "Antiques Roadshow"
2- Going to a digging tool convention.
3- I am making sure I have the right tool for the job. As long as the Job requires seven picks.

It kind of reminds me of the postal art days of the '80's. A good amount of the "art part" was seeing if the postal service would deliver the item. Here we are struggling to get everything on a plane in our current travel environment.

Here is the setup I am planning to bring.
