Nice pics! 8-) They have a 5.0 Mustang engine kit for those Miata's - that would be LOTS of fun! Turn that thing into a modern day Cobra. 8-)

I can't name the bridge, nor the engineer who designed it ..... :|



Tried to pull 6,800 lbs. of coal & trailer today with the Polaris ... of course, it rains for 15 minutes first. 850 lbs. of ATV was no match for this load. The trailer tires sunk into the lawn a bit as the 2 pallets were loaded on, bag by bag. No chance in hell that thing was moving. I was impressed it actually moved it about a foot though. Engine had plenty of power to do so. Had I been on pavement it definitely would have. 8-)

This is the result of the attempt:

"The restored Delaware Aqueduct Bridge (see photo), the oldest working suspension bridge in the U.S., is located between Lackawaxen, PA and Minisink Ford, NY. From Germany to Pennsylvania and then New Jersey, John Roebling became rich and famous for his patented use of spun wire rope. He is best known for designing the Brooklyn Bridge, but take your summer vacation at the Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River. Walk this historic bridge for free."

Woo hoo I win ( I should get a life...hahhahah)

Thanks Cap, I've had a few small sports cars, always considered a Miata. That 302 conversion almost makes me inspired....

Have fun!!!!!


Hey Smitty open those bags of rocks and get yourself some traction :lol:

Expensive traction ... :D

Got dad's Duramax over there - that took care of that. ;) Had to hold the apple tree branches back so he could drive in between the trees. Otherwise, we'd be fishing my trailer out of the septic tank ... :sick:

Dan is the wiener! I mean winner! This bridge is worth the visit. Great job Dan!

This is a really nice place to visit. I found it by accident many years ago when I still was strong enough to pedal all day. I rode my road bike with flat road gearing from Promised Land SP to NY and back again crossing this bridge. It was 60 miles. I drove it yesterday and still cannot believe I conquered all of the hills near Hawley, PA and up Rt 390 from Lake Wallenpaupack.

Freddy...coffe was good, Ate breakfast on the fly, in catawisssa area. Went to a farm auction, looking to possibly pickup a baler, or a pull combine. The person who owned the equipment took good care of it, always shed kept and cleaned, and maintained. NH275 baler/w kicker was immaculate condition, and same for the IH-80 combine. ends up NH went for $1400, and combine for $1500. Foolish me i only brought $1200 cash, the limit i set for myself. If i had a set my limit a little higher....well thats another story. So still looking for a baler. It was a nice ride going down, leaves turned, red, yellow, and falling. rain is not a good thing this time of year... its the closing curtain on warmer weather, and winter's creeping in cold is just a few more weeks away.

Met "Joeski" today, he bought the oil drums from me. You may remember him from the "pouring gas on the driveway to melt the snow" thread. Apparently he was just having some fun. :lol:

Sure am enjoying all the pic's ! One of these days I'll get a better technical head on board to start posting the same way ! Weather has definitely been interesting. Seems like a switch was thrown to go from flaming hot & dry to cold and clammy. The Lake-Effect rain andmisc. fronts have beeattempting to refill th pond,and thats a good thing !....Fred,you look like you've got the market cornered on tire dry-rot...! Take Care,Gang !

Cap,

They were one of the first steel cable makers I believe. My youngest Brother went to school with (and dated) one of the Roebling decendents back in the day. I remember She was in some parade they had back when it (Brooklyn Bridge) was 100yrs old back in the 80's I believe. Building it killed two of the Roeblings. The Old man crushed his foot between a dock and boat and got gangrene, then the son took over but ruined his lungs in the caissons putting in the supports with the bends.

My Bro told me they had an "apartment" on 5th ave. NYC that was several floors of the building. Had a movie theatre in there!

Howdy all,
Got the tarp replaced over the coal stockpile. Had to remove a few hundred acorns from the pile where the tarp had been split, and my wife's cats were busily chasing the snakes and lizards as I pulled the old tarp off.

We had an Antique car show a couple weeks ago, and the local paper finally posted a pic, so I'll pass it on to you. Notice the current date in the caption.
Enjoy.

Nice Chris!! Want any one of those soooo bad. How can you hate a car that you can do a lower end rebuild on the side of the road using your belt for babbit, and still make it 60 miles home! Best vehicle on the planet in the snow, and can be fixed with simple pliers & flat screwdrivers too. Would keep me from passing everyone & getting taxes .. errrr ..... tickets. Someday ...... :(

For now, I can own THIS: :woot:

HAHAHAHA just a flat out internet image search. I win a Miata right? Where do I pick it up. I didn't even notice that is an aqueduct! I had known the caissons at the Brooklyn Bridge caused the first recorded cases of the bends. Imagine working in those conditions holy jeez. It must have been a *censored* box down there :D

Smitty, I think its a good thing you never got that trailer moving with your ATV. Getting it moving is fairly simple.... getting it Whoahhhed-up is a little trickier :fear: :doh:
