IMHO, this is out of Tor's scope. What is needed here is hardware and
software we control and that will not report one's location without

Using Tails on a computer which has has no Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth and no
GPS should do the trick if you want to be pretty sure your location will
not be known. On many computers you can still physically remove these
