DQ, I'm glad it wasn't worse. That had a lot of ways to turn south. I'd hate to be watching a movie next year based on how you had to chew you left hand off at the wrist to save yourself. I wonder who'd play you?

Ride went great, sorry no pics. We found a very interesting bridge in Edwards by the police station. Video coming soon (not of the bridge).

Sorry, the video is of the ride through the Vicksburg National Military Park. I gotta warn you though, it's like 30 minutes long (I'm still adding music and doing some editing should be uploaded by morning). The bridge in Edwards went up at about a 70 angle leveled out for about 2 feet then went down at about a 70 angle. The apex is about 35 vertical feet above the regular road surface. It was kinda like that video of the dude riding his DR650 off a cliff on the TAT the first time I went over it. There are't any even warning signs or anything, just a 15 m.p.h. speed limit sign before you get to it.

I know that bridge well. My wife used to teach at Edwards Elementary. Pretty fun to ride over.

That bridge was made of wood originally and is featured in the closing scenes of "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" when the kids walk by and the old blind man goes under the bridge on the hand car. .. shortly after the movie was filmed, they rebuilt it with concrete.
