    And obey Customs regs to stay out of the pokey. :eyebrow:
    I'm sure the Houston jail for smugglers is not fun, but I'd really hate to spend time in the island jail. I've read they have two, the nicer one for tourists, but that evangelist who had to spend the night got moved to the other one. :shocked2:

    Maybe I'll declare my third camera next time, and go a week without a pocket knife. Got to wonder what the Okies are smuggling which direction...?

    We recently had a Whitetail Deer Breeder (I didn't even know they did that) in Texas busted for smuggling champion stock in from northern states. Now the deer is supposed to be smaller in Texas per Bergmann's rule but some ranches want to sell deer hunting so they breed for larger, yet his smuggling risked exposing all deer and cattle in the area to serious diseases. Some people just do what they want to do even tho the rules may have good reasons.

    On the other hand, some rules are indeed silly. :silly:
