My destination was Montreal and I left at 0740 on Saturday morning. I was initially worried about traffic in the east end of the GTA, which is usual on holiday weekends, but I think mostly everybody had left on the Friday. The most congestion on the trip was actually between Cobourg and Brighton on the 401 EB. That's where it goes from six lanes to two, and I guess there was traffic heading for Prince Edward County. I arrived Kingston at 1053 (I had stopped in Port Hope McDonalds for breakfast) and stayed there for an hour dropping some stuff off at my boat near Gananoque. The 401 had been closed near Gananoque due to an accident on Friday so we detoured around by using the 1,000 Islands Parkway before stopping in Brockville at about 1245-1300 for lunch before continuing on to Montreal arriving at about 1600.

The traffic coming back wasn't too bad with congestion from Belleville to Cobourg and Bowmanville to Whitby. Left Montreal at 0900 and got back at 1600 factoring in a few stops along the way.

How was everybody else's drive, if applicable.
