    Just a few years ago, the north bound bridge was the ONLY bridge. The south bound one is new. I guess they'll be tearing down the north one and build another? It's just tax money, right? :confused2:

    with all the bridge problems in recent history is it any wonder why? just goes to show what a hundred or so deaths by bridge collapse can start.

    It is a good place to put in. Maybe the lack of traffic will keep all the crazys out of there

    Cayman gator, I believe it was. Like 4 feet long. That used to be the only place I fished the river from, first bank, then boat, and it sure wasn't the crazies I worried about:roll_eyes::wink::crazy: Always made me nervous to see all the eager faces when I pulled up in the car and started walking down the trail in the woods to my spots. Like they were undressing me with their eyes. I swear, men can be such pigs!:smile2::smile2::smile2: When the dikes start popping up again (they are still there, right?) I'd like to hit that ramp again.

    Weird and Wacky is a good way to put it. I had to make an emergency run(s) to that restroom there one time, had my brother stand outside the door. Said "Do not let anybody come in here!" Course, being my brother, he was sittin in the truck when I came out.
