What's the weight limit for that bridge? My Super C wouldn't fit but even if it did that things looks a little shaky to drive across with a lot of weight.

They didn't know, and just weren't sure: a recipe for long faces, and a closed off road!

Me too. But the lady in the box isnít quite as smart as she thinks she is. I was going west on I-70 a couple of years ago in Ohio and noted that my Garmin RV 770 was routing me 50 miles off of the interstate. I tried to figure out why and she said there was a 5,000 pound weight limited bridge to avoid. On I-70?! I donít think so! So I ignored her and pressed on. I was impressed at how serious she was in warning me as we approached the bridge. Flashing red warnings and asking me to acknowledge the risk I was taking. Learned to double check the GPS with a second source. Interesting that Iíve driven that same stretch before and after without any issues with the same GPS.

So you didn't die during a drop off a crushed bridge?
Way to go!

Nope! DW got a little nervous until I pointed out there was a line of big trucks in front of us and if they made it across we would too!

Good idea: Let the big kids go in the water first, and let them feed the sharks!

Ain't that the truth! It seems my Garmin RV 660 gets stupider with every update. I never rely on it blindly.
