comment How do I cross US-Canada border while my (US) passport is being renewed?
@MichaelHampton I found that question before asking this one, but (a) the question there is just about going to Canada, and (b) the answer there says you need the passport to return (so have it shipped to you in Canada). OTOH, the comment just above yours suggests that a US citizen can't be denied entry for not having the physical passport. Maybe user102008 will raise that concern on the answer there?

Oh that's interesting; I thought NEXUS was just for expedited service, not for credentials.

I haven't submitted the passport renewal yet; I was getting ready to when this question occurred to me.

There aren't imminent health issues; it's more that I feel like I'm taunting Murphy with this renewal, so I want to see whether there's an option that doesn't leave me unable to travel. Thanks for this information.

What I see (at your link) is that you "can" apply for the card at the same time you apply for the passport. It doesn't say you have to. For most of the lifespan of the passport one doesn't also need the card, so basically I'd be paying the application fee to cover the 4-5 weeks while the passport is not in my possession. I wonder if there's an easier way, but it sounds like that would work if necessary.

Oh, the passport card isn't linked to the passport application itself? (Passport cards weren't a thing yet back when I got this passport, and once they were announced I figured I was covered because I had an actual passport. Until now.)

comment Where should I carry food when crossing national borders — checked luggage or carry-on?
Yes, as it turns out the airline rep who told me that was mistaken.

I got there earlier than I needed to and went from the curb-side drop-off to the gate in about an hour.
