We didn't start until after lunch today because of the rain. The crane fished the second outrigger beam into place and both outriggers were bolted into place. The corbels the bridge rests on were installed under the north end.

Using chainfalls to get the south outrigger beam in place while the crane worked on the north end.





Both outrigger beams in.



Steve and Randy discussing current events.

I think we'd enjoy seeing that.

And then Ed can pass the 12-pack to Jason, who has well-earned it.

If Mike likes Moxie, he should get a 12-pack too.
What–me worry?

Well if they want the real sugar Moxie they'd better let the bootlegger know about it before he travels up for FWW!

Looks like...the next steps are  re-mounting the outrigger wall brace diagonals, then the big move--carefully removing the steel helper spans out sideways, lowering the Bridge onto its corner support corbel pads,  removing temp cribbing and sills, finishing short approach spans, then ROW gradework .

Do I win?  ;) Dr. Pepper's my fave.

I was a bootlegger for a while. I used to bring Yuengling north until it became available in Massachusetts and Maine. I still occasionally find a case of Little Kings in the back of my car.

Don't forget a prize for whom ever added the "Save Marty" to the sign.

Wayne "The Bandit" Laepple bootlegging a truck of Yuengling east of the Susquehanna River to Portland, Maine in less than 12 hours.
Sounds like movie material! Call Hollywood!

I caught a photo of Wayne's ride to FWW full of Yuengling and Moxie all in glass bottles.

A young Abq barkeep from SE Pennsylvania mentioned Yuengling, apparently a popular brew.

Wayne....Yuengling is still unavailable in Maine and New Hampshire. A trip to Massachusetts is required.

For those wanting to place Yuengling orders please let Wayne know first.  When he's max'd out, let me know.  Yuengling has expanded it's line so please be sure to specify what you want.  Also, I will take all Moxie (original recipe) orders up until 30 September.


Sincerely,  Your friendly Moxie Bootlegger
