You want to see bad roads and highways in northern Ontario? Take your car, no, best make it your four wheeler, to North Bay Ontario. Lakeshore Drive A.K.A. Highway # 11B has potholes two feet in diameter and ten inches deep about every ten yards along the whole "Highway". No wonder a town of 55,000 people has 1000 auto body shops in it. Take a cruise up here some day. Maybe you'd really be best to saddle up your horse instead if you're planning on coming to these neck of the woods. Great deals on upper and lower ball joints, leaf springs and front end alignments at all times in the "Gateway to the North". LMARFO. You'd really have to see it to believe how bad the roads are here in North Bay Ontario.

..... I am reminded of a poster who had a solution about what to do about the potholes and the large amount of snow in his or her community: Shovel all that snow into the potholes![LAUGHS]
