    Haven't posted for a bit and this will be short. The TSA sucks.
    I carry my meds in two pill cases where I've marked HEART MEDS! Regardless, I told my wife one of two thing will happen. My checked bag will be searched (it always is is guess because I have my cords and stuff in the checked) and a few things I guarantee. First, my carefully ironed and packed shirts will be wadded up and stuffed in. Second, my med cases will be opened and my meds will be all over the inside of my bag even though they have a particular spot in a clear zipped up spot in my bag. Three, one of each pill will be missing. Sometimes more.
    This time it was one of each.
    I've thought about putting a note on top, inside bag, that says: "Don't steal my medications. They are for my heart and won't get a fly high"
    I don't because, my bags will go to NY when I'm going to Cali and I will be flagged at every airport for additional searches.
    The TSA sucks.

    1) Pack wrinkle-free shirts, or seersucker shirts.
    2) I wonder if it would help if you got your wife to make a video of you at the ticket counter showing, and loudly saying, “Here are my heart meds. Let me count them and show you... one, two, three... X total jn here right before I give my bag to the baggage handlers and TSA. There should be X total in here when I pull my bag off the baggage claim and count them again right there. If not, I will be filing a complaint with documentation.”

    I usually put a bag labeled "dirty underware" on the top nearest the opening of my bags. Have yet to have them search since.

    Crowded weekend with the 3 jumps. Staying a Caesars and the final jump was just outside. Pain in the butt to go anywhere. Did eat a great meal at Hell's Kitchen and had good seats at Gwen Stefani

    You are putting your meds in your checked bags?

    If so, why don't you carry them in with you? I do.
