    i dont, and other than some nieces and nephews(who go to mexico,etc), i know few that do. My brother is planning on driving to alaska this year, so he needs one to get into canada.

    Apparently only 36% of americans have one.

    I have an enhanced drivers license that allows me to drive into Canada, kind of a pseudo passport. It gets scanned at the border crossing. It doesn’t replace a passport if I were to fly into the country.

    I don't ever want to leave coastal Orange County let alone America. I bathe in White privilege.

    As of a couple years ago the US Embassy will no longer add pages to an existing passport. You must apply for a new one. However, for no additional cost you can elect for more pages in your new one if you think you will need them.

    Just renewed mine last year in Bangkok and got the expanded version. In foreign embassies they expect you will do so. Spoke to another American waiting with me who was applying for a renewal even though he had 8 years left on his but no more pages. Sales rep for various countries in Asia who visited clients in each country monthly. Ran out of pages in 2 years.

    I've always had one. Got mine renewed a few years ago. I had to pay like a $75 processing fee. Seems like a waste because I haven't actually used my passport in over ten years.


    2 or 3 trips to Canada and one trip outside of North America.

    2 or 3 trips to Canada and one trip outside of North America.
    Similar, however all my many trips to Canada were before 9/11 and I didn't need a passport. I used it to make quite a few trips to Europe. However, I let mine expire quite a few years ago.

    Back in the day there was a period when the French were mad at us, and I needed a visa to ski there,
    applied and obtained at the San Fran consulate (actually the French never checked it at the Swiss border as I entered). Also had to have a 90 day commercial visa to do a business trip to Japan.
