    Default Crater Bridge

    When we bought the house we were told the previous owner complained about a cell phone tower that's half a mile away, hidden behind large trees. They bought her a huge tree from Georgia for $15k, planted it, and it died. They ripped it out and left a crater in the back corner of our yard. I got to thinking and decided to make a little play/picture spot.

    Just a bunch of non stainless, so it'll rust, then some wood where the locals tried to repair damage from a storm, then wood tied down for the trucks to drive on. Someone broke through the barrier.

    Hopefully it'll rust up well, and I'll add more stuff to make it a fun place to hang out and truck around. All the cool kids are doing it.

    The weights were to add some bend in it, not a flex shot. Ha

    Hope you like.

    Really cool! Maybe some miniature/scale pines on the crater now?

    Nothing too crazy, I'd guesstimate around 20 lbs.

    Added some lights under the bridge rail which I plan to keep there even though they are a little festive.

    The rope light in the dirt is to see if it helps to night play, and i was considering making a water area and using the lights around it...not certain, but here's some lights around the bridge.

    My wife said NO to the rope light. So it's gone.

    It's solar and was illuminated all night...looked like a weird alien had landed in our back yard, so only the small color lights remain.

    Made a bamboo archway which will soon hang a sign, once I figure out an appropriate name. Ran the lights that run under the bridge over the arch. Black box is a cool waterproof battery box with switch for the under bridge lights. Then added 4 solar dock/deck round drop in lights to the bridge ends by the signs. Will see tonight if they look cool. Also made a fence out of round wood bar and parachord.

    Lights worked out OK.

    Found out why the bridge broke...a Mr Burns type individual dumped some toxic waste.

    These are Sterno canned heat things from the grocery store. 2 packs on sale for $5. Makes 3 drums.
