Thanksgiving Travel Was The Sketchiest Yet

posted by Lauren Smith - 

You'll notice there's very little talking in this video, which is shocking if you know me. That's how nervous I was.

And for those of you unfamiliar with a 'wind escort' (like me) it got so windy and treacherous high profile vehicles like trucks, buses & cars towing trailers had to be escorted across. So ya know, you don't blow into the straits never to be heard from again. (Slightly dramatic? I think not. It's happened) 

There is a wind escort advisory, conditions are so rough on the bridge today. This video doesn't do it justice. 8-10 maybe even 12 ft waves

However I still have that Yoop love, check out the scene on the way back :) 

#latergram Santa will have no problem locating the Great Lakes stop! On our way home last night we saw the Mackinac Bridge officially lit for Christmas!
