    Likewise on this post, my 'lightbulb' just went off.

    I have 4 or 5 yards of some 1.9 I bought for another project. I think some experimentation is in order...
    I wouldn't have much to share if not for Grizz and WV sharing with me.

    I'm not quite in the spot where I can make my stuff open source (eventually) but I try to give back to return the kindness shown to me whenever possible.

    As a big guy about your size who has tried the bridge thing and had a cpl of rough ride rodeo episodes Iíll add you should consider putting some type of reinforcements inside your poles. I had a set of the larger ones snap on me resulting in being dumped and getting a gash on my head from the end of one of the poles. Remember itís all fun n games till someone gets a gash on their head while being unceremoniously reminded of the forces of gravity!

    Was this one of Vince's bridges or a DIY?
