I am willing to pay money to see that thing brought to the surface. Who's with me? I am paying in rubles.

We don't need him. We just need someone in the UK/Wales area to sneak out there at night during a low tide and dig it out. Here's the tide info for this Saturday (low tide around 3am and 3pm). For tides on another day, check this LINK.

If ya can't dig it out throw some fetilizer on it. Maybe it will sprout little sidecars.

So how did you find this? I think that achievement overshadows everything else in this thread! What's the story???

What program did you use? There may be times I'd like to scout out good riding roads and that resource could be perfect!

I found the bridge soon after I found his address. The bridge was nearby. I don’t want to say how I found his address because he deserves his privacy. Let’s just say there was an unintended hidden clue in his first post, and 30 seconds after finding and deciphering the clue I had his address.

Don’t get too worked up. Once I realized the clue was there, it took about 5 mouse clicks and typing in one word, and his address appeared. If I told you the simple process, you would not be so impressed. It’s the power of the internet that is impressive!

Once I had the address, here’s what I did:
I pasted his address into Google Earth, which gave me an aerial view of his home. You can do the same thing with Google Maps. From the view of his home, I panned around looking for a bridge near the coast. His first post said “Look at what I spotted from the new pedestrian bridge in the middle of town”. There are lots of good clues in there…
- He could see the rig from the bridge
- It’s a new bridge
- It’s a pedestrian bridge
- It’s in the middle of town
In a later post he mentioned “low tide”, so it had to be near the coast.
And from this comment, there must be something that makes it difficult to access:
“I think recovering it would be unfeasible as you'd have to free it from the mud and get it almost 1/2 mile up river to the nearest place where you could drag it ashore.”
Given all that it didn’t take long panning around to find that wild looking new pedestrian bridge in the middle of town, just up from the coast. Next I went to Microsoft’s “Virtual Earth” LINK. That program has aerial views like Google Maps and Earth, but also has a feature called “Bird’s Eye”. That’s not available in all locations, but it just happened to be available there where the bridge is. It gives FANTASTIC images from all angles, just as if you were a bird flying around that spot. Most of the detailed aerial photos I posted came from Virtual Earth bird’s eye view. I also used Google Earth to find the ground level photos of the river and the bridge. Lots of people post their own photos on Google Earth as placemarks at the locations where the photos were taken. From all these views, it’s clear there is a tall wall on one side of the river. And it’s a ½ mile up river on that side before there is a place where it looks like access is possible. The other side of the river is much more accessible. So, given that every clue he gave matches very well with the location I pointed out, I’d say the sidecar is right there!

I use Google Earth all the time to scout roads and trails out in the desert. It's a GREAT tool for that!

Thumb resue me...

PLEASE dig this up.

NOW.

I just told BrocksterWife that she's lucky that we don't live in England, because I'd be coming home covered in mud right now. She just gave me that, "whatthehellkickareyouonnow" look.

It's more accessible and more exciting than a shipwreck even, and I really am intirgued by shipwrecks for some reason...
