What you’re looking at is the river that runs through our driveway. It’s the river we have to cross to get to the main road, to get to the clinic, to get just about anywhere we want to go. And because it’s so big in the rainy season, we decided to put a bridge across it—or at least in it. To completely span the river at its height, the bridge would have had to be hundreds of feet long, but the sixty feet we have along with the backfill we’ve poured spans the worst of it and allows one to cross without filling the mud boots with water.
So Christopher, are you just jerking your mom’s chain? floating downriver? don’t think a mask and snorkel would do any good! do you have a crocodile proof floatie? haha!
Not exactly portable. The axle was just so we could move it out to the site. the feet are pretty much buried in mud at this point. Regarding the river, I’ve concocted a plan to jump in at Nariko and let the current take me a couple kilometers down to Naturum. Updates to come.
Yikes! What’s swimming in that river?? I am sure I don’t want to know. You all need some hip waders.
Portable engineering for the season…great idea!
Carry on in the strength and wisdom of the LORD.
Thanks for the pic Chris! I was surprised to see it installed already, but then I remembered you worked on it all day Friday and Saturday while we were slacking at Sipi. Looks awesome!
Brillant! I know the place. How nice for you … and your dry feet too. 🙂
