Problems With Gifting A Ride

I was wondering, is it still the case that if you arrive at the gate with a person who has an invalid ticket (fake, duplicate, etc.) that the gate staff will insist that you leave with the person and return them to Reno? If so, that seems like a big disincentive to gift a ride to someone you do not ...

My list: Canteen, spork, cup, sunscreen (daytime only), small flashlight (always), leatherman tool, dust mask or small scarf. Small amounts of military theme swag (like actual vintage occupation currency, soviet-era milit...

Re: Notes from this year
