Don't worry just temporary. The first bridge has shown signs of degradation and I removed it today should get around to building a replacement in the next week or so. I've had the materials for a while so not a big deal just a matter timing.

Gives me another excuse to wuss out on it... thanks Steve!   Grin

Also, anyone out there sending it off the boulder feature on Downhill to River?

I've hit it a few times.  Not much of a send as its only about a 4 ft drop (if that), with no gap to clear.  Fun line though.   
  

Without pain, I'd never know what comfort was.

Still closed today. Caught a glimpse while coming back heartbreak and looks like quite an undertaking...esp since it's 1000% humidity these days. Looking forward to the new update!

Hopefully if rain holds off I'll get that completed today. I forgot just how difficult working in the hole is. Don't know what idiot thought be a good idea to put trail in that area. Roll Eyes

Steve don't worry, if you can get it finished by August the 2nd that would be fine. And probably fine with everyone doing the Rocky River Shiver. I've done 3 laps there before but decided not to do Death Valley on the third lap. Going to be sketchy with the heat or rain for sure.

ciao

Sorry on that, its ready just need someone to ride it to see how the transitions are now. Its not the same as before little less steep going down but probably little more abrupt hitting the other side the flat in bottom less than I would prefer.   Yesterday the decking was to wet and slick for it to be given a try. After I get some feedback I'll reapply the hardware cloth(wire).

Awesome. After you first built it I walked down in there to check out the engineering. Truly impressive, can't imagine how difficult that was.

I'm going to be reworking that new bridge not as smooth as I want.
