We left Toronto early Wednesday morning and headed for the Windsor/Detroit border crossing. The roads in Toronto were pretty messy with a combination of ice and slush making loading the bikes onto the truck and general packing activities a bit treacherous. The highway driving wasn’t too bad as salt trucks and plows had been out in force and the road was pretty clear. Got to Windsor without incident.
We used the tunnel to cross under the river and then headed south on I-75.
Considering the economic downturn and the impact on the Detroit area, it was nice to see that some industry was still alive and operating.
As we traveled south, we eventually left the snow behind but as night fell, we encountered various sections were smoke and fog made night-time driving a bit exciting to say the least!
We drove through the night with Gainesville as our destination for the first day in Florida.
