    For those that scouted with me one day, this crossing now has a bridge. Two 40' steel beams and 120 railroad ties. Sooooooooo, I'll be able to use it on one of the new tracks for next year.

    No kidding. I was looking forward to this next year after Cannon's teaser scouting pics.

    So what your saying is they screwed it up and put in a bridge? :D I thought it was great the way it was.

    Well, we'll have to see what that bridge actually looks like (volunteer labor and used materials, etc). Might be that the bridge is more challenging than the original path. :evil

    Meeting in Boulder Junction today. They are starting a dual sport club and doing some things to encourage dual sporting in the area. Good news for the rally. Many of you will remember Boulder Junction as the quaint silent sports town that is the first gas stop on the Northern Highland route. This begins an initiative to get single track in the state forest near there.

    I also discovered that I have been missing the boat for lunch or dinner there. The Aqualand Ale House has 20 craft beers on tap.

    They got the bridge in just north of the Paulding Light overlook. In August it looked like this (washed out, etc).
