Review of Steady Care Medical’s Emotional Support Animal Letter for Flying

As you now know, I recently took my dog Chelsea on her first plane ride. Before leaving, I had to acquire an emotional support animal letter for flying and have a medical professional fill out a form given to me directly by the airline. This is a new requirement for many airlines which allow you to bring emotional support animals and service animals on flights.

Of course, I waited until the very last minute and needed to find a doctor online who offered a 24-hour turnaround. I also didn’t want to get screwed over by paying for an ESA letter only to learn that it’s not legitimate once I got to the airport. Apparently, that’s a common problem with these kinds of services.

30 Day Train Trip Around The Country With Chelsea

Because Why The Hell Not?

One of my most challenging travel goals has been to spend a night in every state in the U.S. I gave myself a year to do this, and even though I was excluding any of the states that I’d been to already, I was unsuccessful. Obviously, this was a wildly unrealistic goal. I would have had to travel for several months to get it all done in one shot, rushing it rather than enjoying it.
