First off, where would you be visiting in Alabama. I am a MM in the Mobile, Alabama area.
I can also tell you that when I was an EA and FC, I worked for a company that had me traveling all over the state. So like you I wanted to be able to visit other lodges even though my mentor couldn’t be with me. So I asked around and I was told that if I could get a letter from my lodge secretary stating that I was indeed a mason and had obtained EA or FC (whatever the case may be) then I may be able to visit. It is no guarantee because it is still up to the WM of the lodge you wish to visit as to whether or not to accept you.
Then the next hurdle is to make sure you have learned your lesson/exam for the appropriate degree, because they still may want to test you as an EA or FC.
So my advice to you would be to check with the lodge you want to visit and ask the secretary about what you’d like to do. Ask him would he accept a letter from your secretary if it was embossed/stamped and confirming your status in your home lodge. If they say yes then you’ll have to time it when they have a lodge opened on your particular level/degree.
Our lodge would probably accept you, but I am not currently the WM or Secretary; so ultimately be their decision.
