Traveling from St. Paul/Minneapolis to Combermere, Ontario took 13 1/2 hours, 10 1/2 of them spent on the way to, sitting in, taking off from, and landing in airports.
How sad that we distrust each other so. Picture ID, passport, boarding pass, twice (once in U.S., once in Canada) disrobing at security, take off your shoes, belt and jewelry, empty your pockets, laptop in a separate bin, liquid toiletries 3-31, turn around, go back through, X-rayed body cavities, control your luggage, do not speak to strangers, do not look another human being in the eye, where are you going, how long are you staying, what is your purpose here?

I came to listen to the loons. Is that a good enough reason?
