I was reading last night what will and will not be shutting down. Passports will continue to be processed. Hopefully you will be fine.

We did not get passports until we were doing the Panama Canal (not closed loop so we had to have them). And if something happens in one of the ports you WILL be able to get home. It just takes a little paperwork and some money. You will not have to spend the rest of your life in Grand Cayman....but, then that might not be too bad either.

The problem I would see now is that the birth certificates have probably been sent in with the passport application. But, as I read last night, passports and visa applications will continue being processed.

Do you have raised seal birth certificates? If not you have time to get them from your county clerks office (or the county you were born in rather)

You can sail with those

I did hear that normal passports would be processed but no on the expedited ones

Thanks! Now I just have to get more birth certs for the kiddos because I sent them off with the passports! At least that is only a drive downtown!

Been looking forward to getting the finalized list so we can get the FE gifts going.

I would like to thank Angie (MrsMork) for all her efforts compiling the list thus far. You're awesome.

I'm going to make a guess here that they will not be accepting anymore expedited orders right now, but I'm sure they won't set those aside and not work on what is already in process.

Now to figure out how to get this to all of the FE participants. I have the info in an excel document. I think the easiest way to send it is via email as an attachment. Collecting everyone's email might be another chore, but I would be happy to do that. Or if some computer thinking folks (I'm almost computer illiterate!) have any ideas let me know. Looking for ideas....with instructions!

Sorry, computer genius I am not. But considering we've avoided FB due to privacy issues, email might be the best way to go. Really sorry if it's a hassle. Still have my address?

We could all pm you our email addresses. Then you could do one mailing to everyone with the attachment.

I tried attaching to Jay's email address and got some kind of memory error?? Who knows...but, I did a copy and paste and sent it as a test. If that works ok, I will send to everyone.

Thanks to those who have sent me their email addresses already.
