    Yeah, I prefer the more solid versions like this one in the Grand Canyon. It moves a little bit, but not enough to be sketchy at all.

    Fuck no and now I'm going to have to add your conspiracy idiocy to the banned dungeon subjects because good lord man you cannot use common sense or logic with anything.

    It's hard to fathom how big those pieces of bridge are and how stuck they are in the mud and knoted together. Picking up an anchor is hard enough. Now make it 1000 anchors with the chains tied in knots and welded together. They have to cut it. When a bridge is purposely demolished they have the divers and cutting plan already approved and ready to go. They have to survey the wreckage on this to even begin to understand where to cut.

    Fine, I'll leave him...for now. But havingt to read through that amount of stupid is why the dungeon is off.

    I only read the first 2-4 lines of each post. What's the point of having experience if you don't use it?

    I still feel obligated to read it all and make sure theres nothing to nuke the poster over. And I'm not all that smart obviously, been doing this site for what, 25 years?

    CBS News on YT showed a crew cutting one of the beams. Massive. I gather a lot of analysis goes into just deciding where it's safe to cut.

    I can barely imagine figuring out where to cut. OK, so if we unload this piece by cutting that off, then that is going to add stress to that piece on this vector, but that piece over there should help hold it in place until we cut this other piece and add stress on this other vector on that piece, but we can compensate for that by taking the load off that with the crane. Sounds like a total nightmare to me.

    Nah, he's a lot of things but forum-rules-breaker isn't typically one of them. He's not one of the regulars who think they're all slick and shit every time they don't get booted for their way-less-subtle-than-they-think bs. :D

    Speaking of bridges. The new backyard build to me.

    100% supported from land. Moochagain to Canaduh, Gordie Howe international Bridge. She's a bit behind, but expecting 2026 for vehicles to cross.

    Also, if you're a sports buff the Gordie Howe foundation has a good auction this week.

    The stiff dicked warriors that drove those full size Manitowoc Crain's to the end of the roadway have some pretty large balls.

    You can see the towers from my dock. Way way up there.

    I got idea. Bring dungeon back and set your profile so you can't access it :)

    I crossed it a bunch when I was a young kid. My grandparents had a house in Stone Harbor and we went there a lot in the summer. Speaking of sketchy bridges, just south of NJMP, there used to be a wooden bridge that we crossed back then and the boards were loose and banged around when you drove over it. Guess if that one didn't bother me, not many will.

    Y’all talking about riding over bridges on a bike…….the bridge that started this thread is what I crossed daily for years on my Thruxton or FZRs :D One morning on the way in, a mustang was teeter tottering on the jersey wall heading upwards. I passed thinking”what a lucky fucker that dude is!”:eek:

    Effing slow way to do it. A few pounds of C4 and a platoon of engineers...those cuts would be done in minutes....and mostly in the correct places....:D

    The media just cracks me up sometimes. I believe all the steel at the bottom of the river answers the second question. :crackup:
