Has anyone driven route 17 Ottawa to Sault Ste Marie?- Canada?
Greetings Chaplain Kent!
I haven't driven the route that you mention through Canada, but as an alternate if you decide to stay South of the border you might try the route that I have used to avoid the Chicago nightmare when traveling between Cleveland, OH and the Quad Cities in Illinois - - just West of Cleveland, I drop down and take US 24 West to I-39 in Illinois (I-39 will take you directly North to Madison, WI). The roads were in excellent condition the last time that I traveled that stretch back shortly after the WBCCI International Rally.
Another thought, if you do take the route through Canada, you might want to make sure that you know what kind of documentation will be necessary for your travel with a newly purchased vehicle - - I would suspect that there might be questions regarding registration as well as insurance at the crossing.
Good luck with your adventure!
