I met some of you there on Saturday afternoon. Good job with the maintenance. I will definately try be there next time.
Hey, did you guys see my dad (the old guy) jump off the bridge? He was so proud of himself
oh, that was you. Yes, saw the drop and cheered! You should have seen his eyes
when he got to the end of the bridge!! It is the first time anyone has walked over shook my hand, gave a pat on the back and a good 'ol fashioned squeeze! He must be extremely happy to still be alive! It was such a close call.
That bridge, just for everyone's info, is going to be rebuilt from the entry (about 5m back from where it currently starts) and run right through to the junction to join the loop. We've sourced the wood and a new paint-on, mould resistant grip substrate. The project is expected to last 4 days but will be for the week. Anyone with a flexible job is welcome to join, no pressure obviously. Expect the bridge to be closed for that time.. spread the word.
