In December, at the 2008 Christmas Party, Wally moved on to the home of Pam and Bob Stickler, seasonal residents between Round Lake and West St. Paul. While with the Stickler's, Wally had his first experience with airports, TSA's, and airport security as he tried to fly from Minneapolis to Florida. "Well", Wally says, "YOU try to fly with no passport, no drivers license, no green card... not even a fake social security card!" Eventually Pam vouched for Wally and he made it on the plane to Florida. He even posed for photos with all those cute college kids on spring break at the very most southern point of the continental United States.
