    Yesterday the wife and I headed towards NE Ohio to Ashtabula County in OH. All told we put 260 miles on the 57 for the day and stopped at 11 covered bridges. Later, Bill

    Nope its NEVER changing. It took 50+ years for that paint to look that good. :D

    :D:rolleyes: hmmmm

    Because early bridges were made of wood. They covered them to keep the bridge structure from deteriorating so fast.

    Novatatoo- great pictures, and great truck. I see you at most of the shows I attend and have always liked that truck. Where are the bridges at? Almost looks like you came to PA for them.

    What a great idea.....I'll have to load up the little woman and take a road trip like that.
    Moved to Ohio back in 2003 from Santa Maria, Ca. and would love to see things like that.
    THANKS!

    Ken (I think), They're closer than you may think. Some right down in your neighborhood. http://www.bridges-covered.com/ohio_se.htm
