You have had a very interesting time of it while I have been gone. I took my good hand cream with me to CA but the NTSA made me toss it. The tube said 6 ounces but it was only 1/2 full. They would not buy it! It was a life saver for my hands.
I think what you are using for your expenses would be called a debit card here. So hopefully, it would be straightened out before your trip. I usually draw out cash. NO problem with that.
