Rope Bridge in Turkey

How the heck do you get someone to volunteer to take this thing across a little rope bridge somewhere in Turkey?

If the bridge collapsed, the liability would have been 1/8 bridge builder, 1/8 for the department of transportation, 1/8 for the company that sold the boards in the bridge, 1/8 for the company that made the steel cable, 1/4 for the maker of the grader, and 1/4 for the driver....oh forgot about 1/8 for the photographer. And you go to the monkey house till you pay up.

There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Not sure where that line was.

A lot of TRUST in the cables and wood, a lot of FAITH in something, and a lot of ALCOHOL in the driver!

I'm sorry that I complained about the narrow lanes on the bridge construction on 281 in Marble Falls, TX.

They are building a 5 Star Class A Motor Home resort on the other side of the river, all water front pads. Opening Spring 2014, make your plans early.
