Bringing Gear Back From Cancun.

am i gonna pinched bringing vials back from cancun if i’m flying?

best strategies for hiding it? i know orals will be easy to conceal.

Are you going on a chartered plane? I’ve been down there twice since 9/11 on a charter, and on a regular commercial flight.

They didn’t seem to check as closely on the chartered flight - they ran us through like a herd of cattle. But on the commercial flight, they went through everything we had with a fine tooth comb. They tore our suitcases apart.

I didn’t have anything illegal, so it didn’t bother me too bad. But if I was going to try to sneak some gear in, I would take the charter flight that that the travel agencies use with their package deals.

it’s not chartered, but i’m also not stopping in the US, i’m going directly from canada to mexico.

Still contemplating on smuglin them roids ehh? Here are some tips that have been written in T-mag the paper version #7. I don’t condone these acts or the use of Anabolic steroids, this is for entertainment purposes only!!:

1)Mail them to yourself,use something like a CD mailer from the post office and fill it with tabs or a videocassete, or something of that nature. You can overnight it with FedEx or just you use regular maill

2)Purchase B12 empty the vial then fill it up with somethin similiar in appearance. It would be much easier if you could get the top off and then use a crimper with a new top, to recap it. The crimpers are just way to expensive though.

3)You can always empty out a shampoo bottle or saline solution for contacts etc. but, it has to be sterilized. Maybe rinse the bottle out with water and let it air dry. Then using some methyl alcohol to rinse out and let it air dry. Then fill it to the rim with some delicious vitamin S and your ready to rock n’ roll.

4)Have you ever had gay sex? Well if you have it will be much easier to stick them in a certain orifice. If you haven’t, well just use a bit of KY jelly and practice walking normal. Double bag your tabs stickem’ up the wazoo and that’s it.

5)If you have a women going with you, well see #4, plus they have an extra compartment for more storage! Have her practice walking normal too!

Like I said before these have been talked about before. Like I said before I don’t condone these methods or the use of AAS. Have fun!!

Speaking of this stuff, when I was in cancun I didn’t see alot of great anabolics. Maybe i was lookin in the wrong places. Did come back with a ton of clomid nova and adex though. Just recently took a flight to kansas city, and i had put protien in about 10 plastic baggies as pre made shakes. didn’t check any bags so i stuffed the baggies in my shoe. What i wondered was, how did they know it wasn’t coke or something? I mean, it had to look pretty shakey going through the scanner, and it’s not like lots of people carry protein powder around with them. Any way, my advice, mail that shit home. Whatever you choose, good luck and let us know.

i’m just curious about the risk of it getting pinched if i mail it home… does mail go through x-ray scanners? i wanmna know what some good things are to hide it in if i send it in through the mail. maybe i can hide it in a chess set or puzzle or some other sort of souvenir?

see, i’m flying from toronto to cancun, and i come back the same way. on the way back i’m only going to get on the plane with a carry-on, i have my family bringing our luggage back a couple days later <we’re flying back home on separate flights>.

i just don’t wanna have a close-up inspection of my carry-on when i get on the plane in cancun, but once i’m on the plane i feel fine. i don’t expect customs to give me a hard time since i’m only going to have a small piece of luggage with me on the way back.

When you check your baggage at the Cancun Airport, they go through it. I mean they open it up and go through EVERYTHING. At least they did when we went through in the commercial terminal. We had 2 bottles of tequila in our suitcases, and we wound up giving the inspector one of them so he would stop going through our shit. And those were the bags we were checking in - not the carry-on.

You might want to consider that before using family members as your mule.

----EDIT-----

Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were going to let your family bring it over for you.

Nonetheless. When were boarding our plane at Cancun, they went through my wife’s purse like and old woman looking for a kleenex. Then they proceded to go through her carry-on the same way. They never gave me a second look.

I know everyone’s experience is different, the possibility is very real that everything you have will be gone through.

If you have some James Bond shit to hide you gear in, you might be o.k.

also, will glass vials set off the detectors if i keep them on my person? i always thought those detectors just beeped for metal.

damn, this is totally shitty. i guess i needed this reality check, though. you’re right, it’s possible they will search through ALL of my shit.

either i have a really good hiding place and take my chances, or i stick with buying a shitload of orals.

It might have been Brock Strasser who wrote in one of his strasseroids columns (not sure). He said you can use a saline solution bottle. Buy contact lens saline solution. When you get your gear, empty out all the saline and then crack open a vial and use a needle to suck it out of the vial then stick it in the tip of the saline bottle and fill it up. It will be time consuming and you must keep it sterile but it will work.

hope this helps

In regards to smuggling into Canada, Here is what has worked in the past: Purchase one of those touristy tequilla bottles, and empty the contents. Refill it with your favorite oil based gear. Pills are best brought back either in your bottle of aspirin, or tapped flat onto a piece of paper, folded and mailed by regular mail. If you send anything other than a regular letter, it stands a good chance of being opened - Canada customs is pretty good at finding these things - The video cassette and cd case have been tried many times by many different people, and frankly doesn’t fool anyone.
As far as sticking anything up you ass, let me say this- if an amp broke, you would be in a world of trouble as rectal tears are not easily healed, d/t the cleanliness of the area - Not to mention you would probably be getting off the plane and going straight to the emergency room to have some doctor pick shards of glass out of you anal cavity.
Besides, sticking a vial up your ass, and sitting on a plane for several hours, just to save your self a few bucks from what the dealer at the local gym would sell it to you for, is not what I call worth it!

Damn Bro. This has got to be one of the best ideas I have seen yet! I might even give this one a try should I go away anytime soon.

john, ya i thought about that. i might do that with the smaller eye-care solution bottles.

not a bad idea.

prisoner, no way i was stick that up my ass. i’m thinking i’ll just buy orals.

prisoner: you sure that’s ok to put the gear in the tequila bottle? i’m gonna need to streilize it with some alcohol first. i’m just worried the cap isn’t tight enough.

You might also consider sticking the gear into a ziplock baggie and throwing it inside a full shampoo/conditioner bottle. Althought you’ll obviously have problems with the crimped cap if this get x-rayed. . .

STU

insulin vials, empty and tear off metal cap, stick under balls. No problem.

ya i should just put it in my underwear, but do those detectors only detect metal?

i’m gonna do an experiment, when i leave for cancun, i’m gonna keep some glass shit in my pocket and see if it sets off the alarm.

Yes, that’s why they’re called metal detectors, not glass detectors.
