so we're not on the ball...

tim and i are headed to hawaii as of december 27 - my friends Angela and Domi are getting MARRIED! we have known that we would be going for months and months now. but did we get passports? no. and now it's pretty much too late. sooo....we know that you don't need a passport to drive into the US until june 2009. we're going to be driving into seattle. then to fly within the states, for example, seattle to honolulu, you don't need a passport. and then flying back, we won't need a passport. and then driving home from seattle to abbotsford we won't need a passport. right? have a missed something or is it all going to work out despite our lack of being on top of things?

Joy and I have flown the past 3 years to Florida without a passport. We fly Detroit or Buffalo to Orlando and have never had a problem with only birth certificates and Driver's License. It was actually more of a hassle getting into the US than getting onto a plane once we were there. For us, flying within the US is much cheaper than flying Canada to US, plus we haven't needed to have passports.

I was just talking to someone that did a passport application online and then took it into the passport office and they had it within 5 days. I have also heard that you can pay extra money and get it rushed to you.

Have you looked at the Passport Canada website? Or phoned them?

You should be fine with just photo ID. Plus, Sea-Tac is really nice now. It went from being probably the crappiest international airport in the US to super chic... Well, nice anyway! And give me a call if you get stuck in Seattle... I will come to your rescue. I'll have to give you my Seattle phone number sometime.
