While waiting in line at gate, I opened up my trailer and pulled out everything from below the bed in the rear and placed it atop the bed, opened my shower stall, and moved crap out of the way of my closet door so as to allow for a quick and thorough search. The gate folks really appreciated it and it took less than 30 seconds from start to finish.
That is how you do it right
It would be cool if the so-called veteran
burners would be as prepared. Most of their vehicles look like a monkey on crack did the packing... (to steal a quote - sorry cannot remember author!)
One's experience at gate is directly reflective of their preparation and cooperation.
Unfortunately some people end up in D-Lot (the penalty box of Gate) - Mass disorganization and/or lack of cooperation will extend your gate experience...
