New Bouncy Bridge

After 15 years of service, the old bouncy bridge over Little White Oak Creek on the path from the soccer field to AMS needed to be replaced.  Yesterday, 40 people, including many AMS students and staff, helped move three 35 foot locust logs into position, cut out the old bridge, and install new decking.

Gib lends Eric a hand as he installs a pulley on a tree in Silver Cove to pull out the first log.

AMS students, staff and friends carry a log to the creek.

Gib and Randy contemplate engineering choices.

Logs are rolled into place.

Brian and Emmet look on.

The crew stays late to nail down the decking.

I was thinking last week that that bridge was feeling a bit fragile. Guess I wasn't the only one!
