After several of you reached out to me privately, I feel the need to add a few thoughts about our trip over the Mackinac Bridge.
1. At no time did we experience any problems during the crossing. On the contrary! As you can see on the video, it was a very pleasant and un-eventful. itibiti performed like the champ it is!

2. At the time we crossed, there was a "high wind warning" issued because of wind gusts of 20 mph or higher. Again, we felt nothing out of the ordinary, and never felt threatened in any way!

3. For those of you who fear crossing the bridge in a small car...don't be. We felt safe at all times and would do it again in a heartbeat.

4. On our prior crossing, we traveled mostly in the "grate mesh" lane, and experienced nothing out of the ordinary...except the noise! It was raining quite a bit and video taping that day was not an option.

As the old saying goes...Try it! You'll like it!

Yes, that was my only question last year when I test drove, would it make it over this bridge okay. It weighs twice what the Yugo did, and it is much more aero-dynamic. Last summer I saw a FourTwo on highway two in the UP heading for the bridge. I see you didn't brave the grate mesh in the center lanes. I think it's fun to see the water below from those lanes. Was the car stable in the wind?
