    This. the medium sized pine trees are packed in there tight. Its unpleasant to have to bushwack through that stuff.

    I think the lift was installed in the mid 80's and as much as I'd like it not to be the case, that was a long time ago. So its pushing 40 years old. It is slow. The departure terminal is badly...
