I'm subscribed!

Before I accidently ran across BRIDGEHUNTER.com I would use Google Earth to search for these bridges. I would zoom in on creeks/rivers and run up/down stream untill I located a structure. I would then save the gps coordinates and place them in my Garmin and follow the directions to the bridge.
Im glad you are enjoying this thread.
