Maybe I am reading your post wrong.

"I never post an email inside the united states.."

If you mean regular old emails ( like between friends) it is the same as back home. Your hotel may have free wifi. McDonalds restaurants have free wifi and they are everywhere.

If you mean letter mail or a small package/parcel FedEx and UPS have expedited delivery. Even the government run post office has some sort of rush delivery.

(No more pony express between major cities!)

Come on back.

If you can email the documents, type CTRL A to select the entire document. Then select Publish to PDF to save the document as a PDF file that can be read by any computer with Adobe Reader (a free app on most computers). Simply attach this PDF file to your email and it is sent instantly.

If you need to send the actual documents, first make copies in case something happens to the originals. Then go to any US Post Office and ask for overnight delivery.

If you prefer, FedEx and UPS have delivery services that are also overnight. Of the two, I prefer FedEx as being the more reliable.

Any of the above should work. If you are sending the documents to a company, you might ask them which delivery method they prefer. These days, most prefer the PDF file to be emailed but it is always good to check and ask what they want.

Enjoy San Francisco.
