      That's the consensus it seems.

          Would it work for you to take the car ferry from Whittier to Bellingham? You never touch Canada, so a passport is not required.
          English is an odd language. It can understood through tough thorough thought, though.

              Three years ago I could not find my passport for a trip to Oregon. I took my birth certificate, DL and military I.D. All are listed on the Border Patrol web page as acceptable I.D's. for crossing the border. I had no issues at either border.

                I have heard that from many people. I am very tempted to try . However, if they say no then I'm in a tough spot.. I'm just gonna expedite my passport tomorrow to be safe.

                    This is the best choice. My understanding is that the real problem is, if you leave America, you can not get back into America without a passport. I think that you will need Homeland Security approved I.D. to board a domestic flight after mid January. Current Alaska Drivers License is not approved, and they claim the approve ones will not be available till early 2019. I wonder if this applies to part 91 and/or part 135 commercial operations.

                      We should have passports in time. If not, a few days delay is better than trying to get back into US.... I also found out with tribal paperwork I do not need a passport. And, the wasilla post office said as long as I have my receipt and supporting passport application docs that at this time they will let me back in. So it's been an informative journey. Best course of action however is to just suck it up and pay 220$ per passport....

                        That's not true. The us won't deny a citizen, i've been in the same predicament before and got by with birth certificate, dl, and social security card. Canada won't let you in if you wouldn't be able to get out. If your neevous you can call ahead to the border post your going through and let them know ahead of time.

                          Well.......I an very happy for you. But that was in the past, and I am happy that it worked for you and others. My point is what is in the future. There is a clear schedule mandated by U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security for everyone, including children to have approved I.D. (what was in the old days called "Your Papers Please"). Alaska and many other states have balked at this, for varying reasons. Alaska will have DHS approved Alaska Drivers License's in early 2019. The day is coming (SOON) when having several documents as you and others have done in the past.......simply will not work. What has kind'a worked in the past......is not going to work in the near future. The documents that you and others have used, are easy to fabricate, and many illegal people in America have those same documents, only theirs are fake.

                            ^ This.

                            Border requirements are always changing and it pays to stay abreast of the latest. I've never had serious issue entering Canada, but I've many times been hassled at the U.S. border when attempting to enter with less than a passport.

                              Yep you are right , things have changed in the last year. Looks like a passport or fancy approved travel cards are required to get into the us from canada from now on.
