Default Should I take my hookah To Utah this week?

Hey, I'm headed to Utah for spring break to go snowboarding. I really wanna take my small hookah with me but I'm afraid of two things: It breaking in transit, and it slowing me down at the airport because they might consider it paraphernalia. What do you guys think?

Better not risk it. That it might be stopped because it MIGHT be paraphernalia is pretty bad already.

well, i think john was asked once what it was in his suitcase and the lady knew what it was, i mean i guess it depends on the person at the airport. Not to be racially biased, but a white guy like me prolly couldn't get away with it as easily as someone from middle eastern decent.

^^agreed.
IMO: if you have luggage/bags that you are checking, including your hookah with those bags would be optimal. you wouldn't have to deal with TSA screeners pitching a fit about it...

If nothing else you could just find a hookah bar where ever you're going ahead of time. that would save you some weight and some worry about breaking your hookah.

don't even worry about it, like mentioned about i had that experience and they knew exactly what it was. you can always explain what it is too and they should be cool, in fact you're experience will make it easier for the next guy.
and as far as having it on the trip you'll be glad you did and regret it if you didn't. nothing like smoking after a day on the slopes, let us know how it went!
