You and I will make it there eventually, have faith in yourself! And get some dadgum renters insurance!

Hey thanks! By the way... heard bout that job yet? I take it not??? I'm sorry.

The manager keeps telling me they should have the offer together and approved in a few days, but they have been saying this for a month now, I'm starting to lose hope, not sure why they tell me one thing but then it doesn't materalize. I'm just not sure what to do at this point.

Maybe you need to move in with friends or family for a while to help with saving, incognito from the psycho until you can pull your plan together? Sorry to hear about the latest fiasco!

I wish I could, don't have any family around here close enough and most of my friends have lives.. ha.. (i.e. married and kids) so that is out.. I am pretty much stuck, but I do have a better out look today then I did the other day.. not counting myself out completely yet, talked to my connection in Anchorage and she was encouraging but I still have a lot to sort through.. Main concern is to get the restraining order extended for another yr till I can get out of here but I don't think the judge will fight me on it.. Happier note I get to go to Atlanta at the end of the month to work a race!!! Paid vacation!! And my first time on a plain and in a taxi... for a 30yr old.. its all kinda exciting!!

Some people just don't move at the speed we want them to, I am sure it is getting annoying with your life hanging in the balance like it has been, would drive me crazy!! I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you, one of us needs a success story!

You have to really think about what you want out of life. Sometimes to achieve a goal extreme measures need to be taken. I was born and raised in Alaska but left the state for similar reasons to what you are going through. I was stuck in a state that I did not fully appreciate-Arkansas- for 14 years, and then lived in Oregon for five years. After yearning to move back to Alaska for ages, and planning and replanning how I was going to do it, I was forced to decide: do you want to live in Alaska, or do you want to never try. The obstacles toward me moving back were no job prospects, didn't really know anyone after all that time that could help me, being a single parent, and limited financial resources. I had no idea of how I could afford to get my stuff up here. I, too, didn't think that I would be able to drive through Canada. What I ended up doing was getting rid of almost everything I owned, including my vehicle, buying plane tickets for me and the kids, and heading up with everything up in the air. I did have a place to stay and it sounds like you do too. I know that is kind of foolish but since I am an Alaskan I figured at least I knew what I was getting into. Long story short, things have all worked out perfectly. How much is your truck worth, maybe you could buy a vehicle up here?

Was your conviction more than 5 years ago? If so, you can be deemed rehabilitated. Here are a couple of link to research:

Overcoming criminal inadmissibility (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/conviction.asp#deemed - broken link)

Frequently asked questions: Overcoming criminal inadmissibility (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/faq-inadmissibility.asp - broken link)

In any case, I would contact them prior to crossing. Also, I think the border agent has final say in the matter, but it will be more difficult to be denied if you have all documents in hand.
