@gerrit 6 years ago IIRC (among other things on the trip I attended a baby shower and the baby in question is in school now.)

@Blackbird57 I have crossed the border by bus exactly once. Someone asked for a count of people by nationality, I think a person wandered up and down the bus to look at us, and we were on our way. We did not disembark. Not to say it's always like that, and this was a charter bus which may be relevant.

comment Best location for car rental when heading into/out of North Wales from London?
I have to say this is a canonically excellent "what is the best" question. Not only does it contain your criteria but you've taken a first stab at some candidates. Good work!

comment Baggage didn't clear customs - how do I get it?
how did this work out in the end? Did you get your bag back? Who had it? Was there anything special you needed to do to get it back?

comment Where should I stop for interest to kids when driving between Toronto and Boston?
This is getting better. How about updating to include a map with your proposed route, and asking if you are going near something else worth stopping at. On the Niagara Falls front, a separate question about visiting it with school age children would probably do well.
