Could you Pm me any info you have on the longest? Covered bridges and the Amish have been getting my attention lately. I'm ready to re-grow the beard and buy a horse:lol:Ashtabula County now has 17 covered bridge with 1 being the longest in the nation. I can forward some info if u would like.
Thanks Randy! I'm in that area (the spillway) once or twice a week during riding season. Let me know what works for you. Sunday and Thursday are the only days that I have any commitments, but all of the others work for me. Thanks for the PMSammisgrammy,
PM sent, We will have to hook up sometime, I live across the lake from the spillway and I work for the Ashtabula County Engineers office as an Inspector. I Inspect all of the bridges every year and could show you around. We have a very good rehab program for the Covered Bridges and thats why they dont look to old, although we do have a couple of brand new ones.
Nice area! If you haven't been over to the Pymatuming Spillway in awhile, it has been totally redone and is a unique destination. Goldwing09 has a great job.......he's the county engineer for those bridges and he has some great info!! Ashtabula County is home to the longest covered bridge in the country (although I haven't got to that one--YET), so you'll have lots to see. Sounds like a good summer to me!My wife and I did a very small covered bridge tour yesterday. We spent too much time at the fairgrounds and only went to 3 bridges. It was 48 degrees most of the day and at speed....we got a chill. 140 mile day at that temp without restrictive cloting is about all I want. Leaves were at or near peak color and it was a beautiful day overall. My wife wanted to go back and see more bridges today, .....by car. I will be in Astabula quite a bit next summer, including Geneva (50 min straight up 534). BTW a lot of Amish along 534, especially on Sundays. :lol:
Thanks! I'll try it when the warmth returns:lol:While riding in Andover on the covered bridge tour stop in at the Covered Bridge Pizzeria in Andover. I think it pretty good pizza and the restaurant is an old covered bridge. Eat there often during the summer while at camp.
