Time to tease all of you with heavy equipment experience. Who would try these creek crossing?

That is pure pucker time regardless of who is operating it. I will admit, it is something they would ask me to do because no one else would do it.

Sure! I'd check the load capacity of the structure first, then drive right across. No biggie.

Qwerty, do you think they have a load capacity posted on that bridge??? What if one cable is longer than the other under that much weight?

Judging from the bridges' appearances they've been there a long, long time and have had many different things driven across them. If the bridges were going to fail they would have a long time ago. Besides, a swinging bridge of the type in the videos becomes more stable the more weight is on it. No what ifs, put your big boy panties on and drive with care.

Maybe replace a few missing boards before driving it.

Obviously, Fred, one must be capable of picking and riding a line with competence before taking a TW across that bridge.

Very true qwerty. I'ld probably just pick and ride a line to the ferry boat instead. That I could probably do with competence.:D
