comment Waiting time in queues for Empire State Building
If you're a gregarious kind of person, it might be possible to meet other travellers while you're waiting in line. Make eye contact, smile, say hello, and ask, "Are you from here?"

comment Visit Northern Ontario from Toronto without a car?
I think that, on VIA Rail's train called "The Canadian", there's a way to request for the train to stop at any mile marker of your choice, both when leaving the train, and I think also when getting on the train. There need not be any station there. Phone VIA Rail for more information. Does anyone here know more information?

I've never hitchhiked to Northern Ontario, but maybe it's possible. First, read "Hitchhiking#Safety" on Wikipedia. Next, try a Google search for [ hitchhiking northern ontario ].

comment How best to prevent data loss while travelling?
Twenty thousand photos, 6 MB each? Were you taking photos to sell, or just for memories? Why so many thousands of photos? Did you really want to keep every single photo? Were you willing to back up only some of the photos? Were you willing to back up reduced-resolution versions of the photos?

@MarkMayo: A Washington state resident recently asked me, through a hospitality-exchange website, to host them. I did a Google search for [ washington state court records ]. After figuring out how to use the free records-retrieval system, I found out that the man was charged with assault, and after he went through a diversion program, the charge was dropped. This shook my confidence both in the man and in hospitality exchange. Former police chief Casady's advice restored my confidence, but was hard to find. So I quoted Mr. Casady here so that others can find his advice more easily.
