You don't have to be in or near a major city in northwest Ohio or southeast Michigan to be in heavy traffic. Most of our day was on either US-23 or I-75 heading north. The traffic was solid all day. On top of all that, US-23 in Michigan is horrible. If Michigan is getting any stimulus money, they are not spending it on repaving the roads. They are, however, putting up signs to let everyone know the road surface is rough. There was one place between Ann Arbor and Fenton where the road narrowed to one lane. Traffic was backed up for miles so we made our way to the next exit and rode on the frontage road to get past the traffic stoppage before getting back on I-75.
Dale and Vicky are joining us here in Birch Run tonight. We will then all leave together tomorrow morning for St. Ignace. I am so looking forward to getting off I-75 tomorrow. We don't have far to go to get to Bay City and then we follow US-23 up the coast of Lake Huron to the Mackinaw bridge.
