It's a beautiful morning to be on the Badger! Drove all night to get here


The Spartan - the Badger's twin sister that is decommissioned and stored for parts.

Usually VERY foggy at night FYI. Dangerous foggy. Plenty of Tim Horton's to keep you awake.

Cool Pictures MonsterDog - I've watched it come into Manitwoc, but never taken the ride.

We drove through Canada from Detroit to New Hampshire on the way to Maine for TDI Fest back in 13 and I'd never do that again. Horrible traffic, horrible roads, slow speed limits, etc.

On the way back we went the "long" way on the south side of the great lakes and it was roughly the same travel time, but much less stressful.

If you want to do it for the experience and sightseeing in Canada, by all means go for it, but don't do it for any kind of convenience.

Thanks for the insight. It was just something to do. Definitely not for speed or convenience.

Which route is more picturesque?

New Hampshire/Vermont/Upstate New York were pretty. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, etc are a bit less visually appealing to most.

I don't recall much unique for scenery in Canada though the last few hours were at night before we crossed back into the US.
