Friend on Probation

An old friend (and one time fling) from out of town wants to visit for a few days. But there's a problem: he's on probation and wants to do a little traveling. He knows that he'll reap the whirlwind when he returns (which he says that he will do) but swears that no one will be interested in looking for him for the time he'll be away. I'm not so sure that leaving the watchful eyes of probation won't ensue a manhunt. I'm feeling a bit nervous about the whole thing. My question is this: in this circumstance, how do you turn a good friend down?
