Royal Oak City Commissioner and candidate for Oakland County Board of Commissioners Kim Gibbs is having quite the 2020.

Nine days after she got censured and asked to resign by the City Commission for participating in the first round of Lansing protests, she decided to apply a five finger discount to a cartload of poo poo from Meijer.

I need to drive to Northern Michigan from New England.

Usually, I would drive though Canada to avoid Detroit, but I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to?

Take 275 north until it connects with 75 (it doesn't dead end directly, you'll need to go West on I96 when it ends and then north on US23 that merges with 75) and you're on your way up north and bypassing Detroit.

Um, if I can't go through Canada, looks like I have to go through Toledo? So that looks like it would be State Route 23 to I-75 North.

Yeah, that'll do also, if not better. 75 will take you up north just fine.

Where are you headed exactly?

No way I'm taking a vacation to the disease capital of America right now.

US-23 from Toledo through Ann Arbor and Flint where you then hook up to 75. That's probably how I would do it anyway, no need to go either in to Detroit or through Canada.

I work near that area and have family that lives around there that have been evacuated. So crazy! I remember the flood of 1986 and this is supposed to crest 5 feet higher than that.

And Iím the only one in the office today because everybody else lives on the other side of the river and would have to take 3 hours out of their way to get here.

Right, I'm coming from Boston though, so driving through Canada saves me 3+ hours vs going around the lake through Toledo, even with waits at the borders.
The only reason I mentioned Detroit is I had previously flown into Detroit and driven to Petoskey, and my MI geography is poor. Well, was poor, getting better.

There is a chance they might open the border next month. We'll see.

And so close! It's due north of the Panhandle. I met several people in northern MI who wintered in the panhandle.

I always thought of Florida as "South of Boston", but of course you have to drive a considerable distance west to even get to East Coast Florida. See my previous comment about weak geography skills.
