I've only been once so far and I really enjoyed it, but I understand why many folks don't. It's beautiful, and the truck stop parking lots are generally much cleaner. You can use US Dollars, you just get your change in Canadian money. In spite of paying extra, my AT&T iPhone would not call, text, or acquire a data connection once I got away from the border.

The biggest issue I faced was the surprise that unlike Ontario the entire Province of Quebec is NOT bilingual. All road signs are in French only. I was fine with compass directions and Entrée, Sortie, Arrêt, & Sens Unique; but I didn't understand Ralentissez, Péage, and Interdiction de doubler when I drove past them at 100kph. And did that sign mean "No Trucks" or "No Trucks next exit"? Then there was the adventure of fueling in a small rural town at a gas station (not a truck stop).

I've heard complaints about the border crossings but I didn't experience any issues. When you figure it was 4300 miles up and back in 9 days (which includes a 34 hr reset) I can't wait to do it again.
