Bad thing, that could happen, some folks don't realize how real my fear is! I've heard of folks stopping on the Million Dollar hi way in Co. and freezing up, someone else has to finish the drive, that could be me.It's real.

Re: Interesting THE MONSTER



I don't know, might be scary. I remember getting down in the floor of the 70 Chrysler Newport, one like this

I think I read where it had to be tall enough for a battle ship to cross underneath with a dirigeable strapped to it

This is a neat undertaking, especially on a bike. Sounds like something I want to do to.

Re: Interesting

I understand the fear some have but it is really a non issue for most. That pic shown is greatly exaggerated, not even close to reality. Both bridges are open and have been for many months. The old bridge which is the object of concern is 146 ft to the water at road surface. It is steeper than the new bridge and there are many who have reservations. I know several "normal" folks who will not ever cross it, the fear is very real and cannot be denied. From what you are saying Rob, I think you might want to look at other routes just in case. Wouldn't want to see you have a real issue which could be seriously bad. Good luck.
