We started this day with a 3 hour drive to the US border. Before crossing we visited Stanstead Stone Circle which was a waste of time.

... the keys to the guy and catch the others up. ONLY 1 LIFT IS WORKING. We run up to the first check in desk at 6:55 and are told by the check in lady; SORRY YOUR FLIGHT HAS JUST CLOSED!
