      I don't think security would be bothered with people going to the mountains.
      It will be interested in what you do when you get there.

      The licence plate of your car will have an RFID [radio frequency
      identification chip], so they will know when you go to the mountains and
      when you might leave. The chips will be installed under to premise of "user
      pay" for the road system. Security only has to tap into the system. And of
      course they will monitor all your communications whilst you are there.

      In a way, a speaker is a microphone, but you don't have to be that
      complicated. Landlines are easily monitored and cellphones .... well ... we
      all know that they have no real privacy.
