That's funny.

That bridge is really easy actually. I had the group of newbies with me really FREAKED OUT though.

Before we got to the bridge I told them about the scary log bridge with the huge tire eating gaps and the swift river raging underneith it, and that you'd better not fall in the gap or you'd die, etc, etc.

By the time we got there they were TOTALLY PSYCHED OUT!

One guy almost didn't cross it and I had to tell him to GITTY THE F#$% UP!

Good stuff indeed.

It was somewhere between Koln and The Netherlands. We were making a mad dash from Heidelburg for a couple of days. Here's another view.
