Did you ever ask yourself, "What happened to all that American Reinvestment and Recovery Act money, all those shovel ready projects that were supposed to take place?"
I have the answer.
EVERY FREAKIN HIGHWAY IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION HAS A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT!
It seems we never could drive more than 50 miles without a serious slowdown and the biggest traffic jam we were in was on a Sunday afternoon in Nowheresville, Michigan.
I add this only because the single most frequent sight on our trip were the signs telling you how much time you would spend in jail for killing a road worker.
