THOR #19565
IH-75 southbound to Dayton

4000 mile trip and I can report that Toledo to Dayton on 75 is by far the worst road. If you want to shake everything loose go there!

Thanks for the warning.
Did you happen to stop at Tony's I-75?

Can't be much worse than 94 south of Chicago, or 25 from Cheyenne to Denver. I actually lost the back corner of a molar going past Ft. Collins

You just don't realize how bad our highways are until you get to experience them on a Ford RV chassis.

Exclamation

95 through South Carolina used to be what I called "an Army Tank Test Track". I really believe those road crews we saw occasionally were actually installing potholes. But I guess they got tired of picking up miscellaneous vehicle parts and finally have smoothed things out somewhat. Not perfect yet, but at least my dentures stay in place.

On the road to Dayton we actually saw 4 kiddy bikes that had fallen off and were rolled up like a hair ball in the middle of the road! I was SOOOO glad we didnít hit those. Thank God for Waze ďWatch our, object on the road aheadĒ

I 94 in SW Michigan gives U a lotta bang for the buck. Every time we head up to Kalamazoo to visit our granddaughter I know the access panel under the stove is going to come off or the microwave door will fly open.

Takes a significant jolt to get the microwave door open I've never wanted to get off of any piece of road so bad at I-94...absolute POS!
