The Michael W Travels family went on a trip to Portland Oregon a few months back.

This was our first time flying as a family of four. (Great job so far Theo!)

How Did Kim Get To Fly Without Her ID?

fly without idIn late October, the Michael W Travels family went on a quick trip to Portland, Oregon. This would be the first flight for Theo!

Our day started out very early and before heading over to security at LaGuardia Airport, we stopped by the Amex Centurion Lounge for a quick breakfast.

When we got to security we then encountered a problem. Kim’s NYC ID wasn’t considered a valid form of identification according to the TSA. Continue reading How Did Kim Get To Fly Without Her ID?

Theo Takes His First Flight at 7 Weeks Old!

Kim, Lucas and I were thrilled to recently add a new member to our family- Theo Oliver!

The legal acceptance of marijuana around the U.S. has been increasing in recent time.

According to CNN, as of April 2015 four states (Alaska, Colorado, Oregon & Washington) and Washington, DC allow the recreational use of marijuana. Many others legally allow its use for medicinal purposes.

From what I’ve read, more states will follow, allowing for the recreational use of marijuana in the future. I’m not a smoker and prefer not to breathe in other people’s smoke whether it be cigarettes, cigars or pot so these new laws do nothing for me in a positive way…

So what if those that enjoy smoking up want to fly with their marijuana? Continue reading You Can Fly With You Marijuana In This State
