comment Cheapest way to get from Tucson, AZ to Boulder, CO?
Looking further after I posted that comment it doesn't look like anyone serves Boulder. I don't know why.

Interesting... Greyhound's site won't let me select Boulder, Colorado as a destination and neither Trailways' site nor Megabus' won't let me pick Tucson, Arizona as a starting point.

comment What popular western web services don't work in mainland China?
Even VPNs aren't a panacea for the Great Firewall. I found many of the nodes of mine blocked the last time I was over there.

comment Driving a rental car through Colorado
I haven't done the specific route but I've taken a cheap rental over the 10,000' pass on the interstate and I've taken it on the high road through Estes? park, no problems at all.

@Sylverdrag But they would figure she had triggered the strip search. She's looking for an option where there's nothing that can be traced to her.

comment How to intentionally get denied entry to the US, without getting into trouble?
@Sylverdrag The spoon trick is to get away from guardians. She seems to have reasonable freedom as it stands and would be able to simply ask for help. I read it as her looking for a way to be kept out that she won't be blamed for.

comment If I lose my papers/passport in the US, what police station should I report it to?
Note that some places have county police also. You also may find things like our <city name> metropolitan police--one department that covers not only the city but nearby developed areas also.

comment Are wet wipes subject to the TSA's 3-1-1 Liquids Rule?
I don't think their x-ray can tell such things contain liquid in the first place. I used to travel with ampoules of liquid medicine, after a couple of times where I didn't get them told I realized they didn't see them--and I quit telling them. I was never questioned about it despite sometimes carrying a total of about a quart of liquid.

comment How much cash am I supposed to prepay at gas station in the US?
@MichaelHampton These aren't typical time-delay safes. Rather, they are safes with rate-limited dispensers. You push a button for what sort of money you want out, it gives it to you--but then waits a while before it gives you more. The idea is to make it impractical for an armed robber to get much--the clerk is NOT able to speed it up.
