    I have never had a passport

    and for some reason I want to get one. I don't know where I might go, but it is possible I could travel some day. Hmmm, seems like a pretty simple process. I am sure everyone else has a passport and I am the only one without one.

    See what happens when you wake up early on a Saturday

    Mine expired 25 years ago. So no you are not the only one without.

    We got one many years ago for a trip overseas, then renewed it for Canadian travel. Might still go to Ireland. It's only been used 3 times.

    It makes me anxious to think about not having a passport. This year I renewed mine about 3 months before I would have had to, ut I didnt want there to be any screwups. My distrust of gubmnt bureaucracy is pretty high.

    I travel abroad quite a few times a year and I have had my own passport since I was a teenager, before that I was on my parents' passports. My children travelled as unaccompanied minors to various European countries since they were about 10.

    I don't know anyone in my social circle who doesn't have a passport!

    I've never had one either, ZG, and neither has my husband. We pretty much don't leave New England, let alone the US.

    I have had a passport since a child. We have travelled extensively even with our child when he was younger. It totally changes your perception of the world. I believe the passports now (since Jan, I believe) are smaller. So, if you go to many places and there are not enough pages you have to pay more.

    Have had a passport for years and will continue to do so to give me the freedom to move around as I wish especially since one now needs a passport to visit the US.

    It's much cheaper doing it ahead of time than expediting it.

    Also of note: renew them *well* ahead of time, some countries won't let you in if you are going to expire within the next few months.
