AHHH...the good ole Ambassador Bridge! Brings back memories....When I hitchiked from Mexico to Detroit, my ride left me and my friend at the foot of the bridge..than out of nowhere, like 10 Customs Officials surrounded us and told us to go away, because the bridge didnt have any pedestrian traffic.....we asked them how we could get back into Canada, and the sarcastic A-hole said, "Why dont you try New York".....anyways, we saw an Ontario trucker just about to cross the bridge, and we asked if we could tag along. We asked him where he was from, and he said Brantford, Ontario so we yelled "GRETZKY!", showed him our Canadian passports, and hopped on. Can you believe he actually took two punk idiots with backpacks across the border!!! Trust me, I was kissing the Canadian passport after that one!
Anyways, sorry for babbling. I think its a great idea to live in Windsor!!! NO need for a visa, and you would still pay Canadian dollars in rent, so even with the toll, you still probably break even. And the crime rate in Windsor is like nothing.
The only bad thing I could see is that when the terror alert goes Orange, border crossings become long and annoying.
