I used to refuse to drive the Mackinac Bridge, but I've conquered that demon and then some.  I've drive it now like it's no big thing, although I still need to listen to my comfort music.  But I've done the Mackinac Bridge Walk in 2019, 2021 and 2022.

I was looking forward to conquering the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Florida in February, except I had to detour on my way into St. Pete.  My dad admitted to me only recently that that bridge gave him the heebie-jeebies when he drove on it when we vacationed down there in 1989.

When I start at the Mackinac Bridge I put on The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald by the late great Gordon Lightfoot, as I start I put the cruise at 45 mph which is the Mackinac Bridge speed limit and soak in the moment every time it still sends chills down my spine to drive across it. The Wreck Of the Edmund Fitzgerald ends about as I'm slowing down for the toll booth, perfect timing and listening to that song with two of the Great Lakes within view is the best.
