Has anyone ever attempt to get a National Parks Access Pass on the basis of their Type 1 Diabetes? I stumbled across the site and started looking into it. Technically, by law, T1D is considered a disability as it substantially limits the major life activity of our endocrine systems as defined in Title 29 of the US Code (29 U.S.C. § 705) pursuant to Title 42 (42 U.S.C. § 12102). Granted, I don’t think most people with T1D consider themselves as what most think of as “disabled”, and you’d never know it just to look at someone with T1D unless you spot a pump or other related item.
So, is this getting by on a technicality to save hundreds of $$ over a lifetime of visiting parks? Morally objectionable to some? Perfectly fine in the eyes of some? We pay enough to manage this thing so why not get something free out of the deal in some minds?
