    Looks like a bridge to me. Here are some pictures of the workbench I took down off the back wall of my garage. It is 9-1/2 feet long and 22 inches wide. 2x4 runners with 2x8 planks on top.We forgot to measure the creek crossing but it might work.

    Do we have an updated forecast? It should warm up enough mid week to clear the roads, but I need to know how many dogs I should bring so I'll stay warm at night.

    Thought you and Queenie were getting a room so that you didn't have to fight off all the volunteers you'll have to keep you warm. :evil

    Actually, I was planning on being the first to fall in the creek! It sounds like Skinner will have a motion activated camera set up to share the moment(s) with all.

    The gold ice screws have a 1/4" head. I'll be bringing a couple of cordless drills, spare tubes, a tubless tire patch kit and a 12v air compressor if I can find it.
