I am planning on, at the end of the year, making the jump to Germany.  I have a few questions though:

  1. How much should I have saved in personal funds too make sure I don’t get in a bind once there?
  2. Does anyone have any recommendations for airlines to use?  I’m on federal supervised release for life for possession and distribution on CP; that was in 2008. I don’t want to get to the airport and be denied boarding or have the Marshalls be there waiting for me.
  3. Lastly, does anyone have contacts that are there, know River and the great people that work there are a contact but they can’t just drop everything to meet me, as I understand it they are all volunteers doing this.

I’m wanting to get this done ASAP: filing for my passport next week. Do I have to do anything special to make sure the identifier is on there or will they find it in their background check and automatically put it on my passport? Again, don’t want to get to the airport and not be allowed to board. Thanks for any help you can provide!
