Bridge to Nowhere...

3 posts in this topic

This imprssive span of steel the connects the east and west banks of the Red River north of Selkirk, Mb. I is more commonly referred to by the locals as the "Bridge to Nowhere". Reason being, at the time it was constructed, a then politicain of the day "owned" the property on where the bridge was built....how convenient!

Anyway the way in which it appeared to me this morning looked good enough to attempt a photo...

... straight to my place, Dan whistle . Howard Pawley did ME a favor, eh Stu wink??? You could've got some great shots of those storm cells from up there last night, as well (at least until the boomers hit eek!!!). You could've got the Stone Church, the river, and the cell you shot in the same frame (I know... I almost hit the guardrail looking at exactly that on my way home cool).

Actually, it carries a lot of traffic, both commercial and domestic... connects the highways on the west side of the Red with Hwy 59 and lets you avoid going into Selkirk or over the Lockport bridge (the only other options out there).

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
