In just under four weeks, Stephanie will start her first official vacation - 10 consecutive days!
Given what I have heard from others, I will not officially start my vacation until I arrive at my pre-SCC stop in Phoenix. I am told even with a carry letter, as I still have all my ID in my male name, that getting through US customs can be an issue when you leave Canada - especially via flights. So my official vacation will be delayed by a few hours but at least it will still occur.
Once in Phoenix, I plan to be Stephanie for the duration of the vacation. The longest that I have had previor to this has been 2.5 days so this extended time is welcomed.
I plan to travel as Stephanie with my carry letter to Atlanta for SCC and then back home to Canada. Given the recent news reports with the way TSA is dealing with screening and how it effects transgendered individuals like myself, I am wondering if I am going to get a hassle, since my ID is still not changed.
If your wondering, I am not yet full time and am waiting to start HRT, once I get my appointment with the Endo. My plan is to be on HRT for a while, so that I can close off loose ends and just prior to going full time, I will proceed with changing my ID.
If anyone has any recent experience with customs or the TSA and would like to share, I would greatly appreciate it as my trip is only 26 days away.
Oh, I am looking forward to seeing all my PE friends in Phoenix and at SCC.
