Important passport card info.

Recommended Posts

Sorry if some of this has been discussed already - but thought I would share some important passport card info stuff.

I just went into the DMV this morning. You have to have your Drivers license AND a copy of the birth certificate. It has to be an original BC with the notary ridges - they looked real carefully at those.

The guy told me that this all goes into effect June 1 this year. I just bought the passport card. It was 45.00 verses 100.00 for a regular passport. You CANNOT fly in and out with the pass port card - so if you ever plan on flying in the future - you should get the regular passport. Also, lets say you are way up in canada and there is a emergency. The guy said you cannot fly back with just the passport card you would have to drive over the border and then fly back.

Last, he also tols me that if you have a regular passport - but it expires within 6 months AFTER your planned trip - they will still NOT accept that. I had never heard this part before - and I thought it might be important for others to make sur eyou look at your passport expiration date and then add on 6 months after that for your planned trip - jsut to make sure you are in the clear.

I was told it would take 2 to 3 weeks to get mine. He also said that most people have been finding they are arriving earlier than expected - but if you have a trip planned after May 31 - then dont hesitate!!

this passport business has really gotten under my skin. It's kinda like gun control. Honest citizens obey the rules. We get passports as required by law while the illegals continue to invade our country.

I dont mind having to produce the extra identification - but I do mind having to pay 65 bucks for the whole deal (45 plus about 20 for the pics etc...).

Thats 65 bucks I could have used toward a new reel or tackle.

Only good news is that it will last 10 years.

I'm going up to Savant Lake this August, driving most of the way then flying in. All flying will be in Canada, not flying across the border. Will the passport card be OK for me?

You will be fine. The passport card is only good for land travel across the border. After the border, it has no restriction to what you can do.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
