John, is there no chance it will be there on Monday? I wonder if you could stop at the US side of the border and get a return certificate of some sort so you could go ahead with the trip.

Not even a remote chance of Monday, it's going to take us months to prove that my wife of 42 years, my high school sweetheart, who was a ward of the state because her parents were too freaking drunk to give her a name at birth (hospital paperwork says "Baby Girl Tripp") or even take care of their kids is indeed a U.S. Citizen. Wonder if that means she can stop paying taxes!
They want us to provide additional records (more than we have already) like census polls from back in the 50s (not sure what that proves), school records, affidavits from family back in the 50s, and whatever else we can come up with. Keep in mind that we had this done back in 1977 when the Navy processed me for a Top Secret clearance and we have a delayed birth certificate from the state of Maine that outlines everything that they reviewed back in 1977 to make the correlation between Baby Girl Tripp and my wife. They told me 4 weeks ago that this was enough, today they say that must not have been an authorized person telling us that and that they needed all the documentation (I guess they don't believe the good folks in Maine). To say I'm livid would be a huge understatement! I also asked them about her crossing the boarder without a passport and they told us point blank, don't try it.

I don't know what to say. The level of nit picking is insane.

Hafling, have your wife tell the incompetent state department that the NSA gobbled up all of her records and turned them over to the IRS to be reviewed for a job with TSA searching little old ladies and babies for terrorism related issues. If that doesn't work send her to Mexico and have her enter the US without documents, then the gubberment will issue her everything she and you need.

What it really boils down to is the State Department employee went to one of the IRS parties and learned to line dance but forgot how to get back to their desk. Don't ya just love funding incompetence.:ssshh:

Hard to find the humor in this situation right now but maybe I will some day. Your post did put a smile on my face at the dinner table tho!!! You want to know the really really stupid thing? All of this effort does absolutely nothing to prove that my Nancy is the person that all of this documentation is pointed at. It just proves that there was a person of that name in existence during the time frame and location given. It is beyond belief. I am making a copy of the entire package and sending it to my state rep and congressman just to see if I can get a response or acknowledgement of how absurd this truly is!!

Nothing more than state wanting to put more of your $$ into their pocket. I hope your congress critters are more responsive than mine.

Isn't that what most if not all the Birth Certificates of that era prove? Back then there were no finer prints or foot prints put on the certificate.

On my BC, they spelled my mothers name wrong, so on record I was born to someone who did not exist, but I'd bet if I applied for a Passport I would get one......... Stupid!!

Grandson and I are leaving shortly so we can get settled in and do some touring tomorrow. He wants to see the area his grandmother was raised in.

Well, I left at 5 AM this morning to come meet the Wizard, and my back tire went south about 40 miles from home, so I stopped going south at that time. Looks like a delamination on this Cobra Venom tire. Pressure is perfect, but the tire throws the whole bike around. Called the wife to bring tools and I pulled the back wheel off, and then we came home. No shops that sell tires open today (Monday) so by the time I get a tire and get it on - tomorrow will be gone also, so I am gonna just cancel the trip. Sorry I will not get to meet Y'All this time.

When all else fails, drive the car. We won't fault you for it.

Our campground reservation starts on Tuesday, check in time is listed at 2 pm but we are going to try to get there around noon time. Site 121 at Norfolk Conservation Area.
