I'd like to travel from California to British Columbia in 3 weeks. I lost my passport.
I'm aware that in general, passport offices will issue a last-minute rush passport if you can prove that you have already purchased travel in the very near future. But I was planning to travel via under-the-table means rather than plane, train, or bus. Under-the-table means hitchhiking/craigslist.
In order to qualify for a last-minute passport, what kind of "travel purchase" do I need to have made? Could I, say, just buy a greyhound ticket from Seattle, WA to Vancouver, BC?
