Why? Of anyone with an interest in this game, you probably have the greatest access to all these types of bridges.

Wild Card!

OK, I'll tell you what. I didn't realize this was going to be so difficult. I'm going to throw a wild card into the mix.

A covered bridge is the wild card, and will substitute for any single type of bridge from my original list.

Interesting football. Did you steal one of your wife's throw pillows?
I wasn't submitting any of them as the tag- just asked a question and added a couple neat pics.

Ok on the first, which is why I asked.

There really are 3 bridges in the picture, the structure before the lift bridge is clearly a beam bridge (I mistakenly said truss in my original post). Not a great photo but it is.

The 3rd bridge is of the bascule (seesaw and balance) type; in the drawbridge family. An unusual type that I thought people would find interesting.


The football is a Reeses Pieces promo item one of my grandkids had.

Refering to the 3rd.

There is actually another much larger jacknife bridge that spans the Hackensack River. The "Erie Jacknife Bridge" In Seacaucus. When I used to be a tug capt. and ran up there occasionaly, I had to call it for a lift amongst a few others.

a cable stay or harp bridge-Intrepid pedestrian bridge NYC.




a cantilever bridge- Outerbridge




a concrete or stone arch bridge- Rt. 27 bridge- concrete and stone arch



a truss bridge- Goethals




a beam bridge




a draw bridge or lift bridge or swing bridge- rail bridge next to the Goethals

Next challenge

1. A Gambrel type barn
2. Sheep
3. A 7-11 type store thats not. Like a "SEVEN UNTIL 11" or "Quickee Mart" (You can get a hot coffee here)
4. A Revolutionary War marker of any type.
5. A Porta John. (right about now you should be ready to pump your bilge of that coffee)
6. A roll of hay
7. Abandoned motel

* And a wildcard tag. You can substitute any 1 of the above for a shot of your bike in front a saddled horse.

Doc, I mean file photo prevention item is one riding glove on your bikes mirror.
