    Feck, I like having seasons, but I hate being cold. Go figure.

    Planning to retire in 2 years, and I'm already making plans to be a snow bird. Just need a camper big enough for me and 3 dogs. ;)

    Sorry to hear that. But, if its any consolation, Im done here in S.E. Idaho with bikes for the season also.

    Most National forest trails closed yesterday, and its snowing at higher elevation right now. Im switching full ahead into sled season. :clap

    My DR likes hunting down the old steel and wood bridges around central Texas. This one is from yesterday in Gonzales County. Gonzo county bridge.jpg Gonzo county bridge 2.jpg
    Some old farmer came driving up and told me to enjoy it, as the county was slated to demo it soon.

    That's horrible! They should at least leave it intact and close it to traffic. It's our history for crying out loud! We've got a few neat ones over here in the SE portion of Texas, none slated for destruction as far as I know though.

    I did find one unremarkable bridge on one of my usual routes was lost and is being replaced. Thanks a lot Harvey!

    WW- check out BridgeHunter.com. A lot of the routes that I create go near or over these old bridges out in the countryside. I've learned that if a road has a weird jog it right before a bridge over a river, that usually means there's an old wood and steel one that's abandoned and they built a new concrete one next or near it and just move the road over a bit. Sometimes they're easy to spot, other times they're covered in Vines and debris. And if the county is really fancy they actually paid somebody to demo it out.

    This site is so cool! Going to start collecting bridges in my area. Great way to do some short late fall/early winter rides.

    At least you were stopped and off the bike. They only come try to visit me while I'm still rolling and try to kill me! One almost succeeded a bit over a year ago, though it only managed a suicide run.
