Wheelchair Travel Newsletter

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there."
 — Lewis Carroll
 
 
Hello!
 
As you may have noticed, the newsletter has a slightly different look! As a cost-cutting measure, I was forced to move to a new email newsletter provider, but I'm pleased with the result thus far. If you have any issues accessing this email, please let me know!
 
Later today, I wiill (hopefully) be departing on my first flight since I began isolating from society and most living things in March. My first flight back has been delayed a week because American Airlines refused to let me fly last Wednesday. You can read about the whole ordeal by clicking here. Please share the article to help raise awareness and ecourage the DOT to act.
 
In the coming days and weeks, look out for new stories on the blog and social media — my first impressions with travel during the pandemic and reports from my upcoming destinations: Las Vegas and Salt Lake City!
 
Below, you'll find links to new articles that I hope you will read & share with your friends on social media. As always, I welcome your feedback and comments.

Best wishes,
— John Morris
