Step 1: Buy a POS rusted mobile home frame
Step 2: Drive the said POS near a creek
Step 3: Use a loader and excavator to drag POS across the creek
Step 4: Cut the wheels off




Step 5: Drag the wheels out of the water to be used later...

Step 6: Weld up the broken beams


More to come later...

I think I would add extra reinforcement, to account for the additional LL, knowing that was a mobile home before. ...but yes take some video once you have it completed.

Y'know, it'd be a better thread if he was standing in the water and wearing hip waders while welding. Darwin Award indeed!! :lmao:

But for cereal, it sounds like something some of my family and/or myself would do or have done so kudos to you, Mr Kyle. Is there any sort of tax credit for having an eco-friendly bridge since it's recycled? :D

Step 9: Brush the cow hair off of Doris...rev engine loudly to show them that Doris disapproves of being an ass scratching post

Are there any mid creek supports planned? Maybe taking those axles and dropping them vertically in the creek and welding them to the frame? If not I cannot that span of steel I beams holding much more than foot traffic. Otherwise you are going to end up with an underwater bridge. :D

The crusher needs a bath. Send it over the bridge first.
