Oh I have far more options that that \:\) My partner is a bike enthusiast. From Happy to the dam is nothing for him on a bike. Bike goes in the back of the truck, gets chained to a tree at takeout. He rides, gets truck.

I have a scooter that will do 60 mph and will fit easily in the back of the truck. Bettys to dam or Happy, nothing to it.

I also have three phone numbers to call. One of them has gotten remarried so she may not come pick me up but I bet the other two still would.

Hitchhike. I did it last week. Seems like I got picked up quicker when I was 30 years younger \:\)

But again, it isn't the money. I was misinformed. I'll use Deidre most of the time. Now when they get the new ramp in at the Hickman Bridge, that will be a different story. Last I heard, it was scheduled for August...but with TWRA cutbacks, it may not happen.

Gil- do you have any input on that?

I am going on the assumption that the trip is 25 miles, because you said it is about $1 per mile at $25.00.

At $10.00 they are spending about $5.00 in gas for the trip, leaving them $5.00 profit for the 30-45 minute trip. That would not be worth it to me.

At $25.00 they are still spending $5.00 in gas for the trip, leaving tehm $20.00 profit for the 30-45 minute trip.

To pay someone $20.00 for that amount of time may be a little high, but I would probably not take the precious time out of my day to drive some guys up the road for less than that. You would pay a plumber, electrician, or any kind of specilized trade as much or more than that for their services.

Is the hike from $10 to $25 steep? Yes, but I still don't think it is unreasonable.

I don't think it is unreasonable. They are providing a service and yes gasoline in high. Is it worth it? I would think so.

I asked Frank Fiss about it and wish I could remember his specific time frame answer. He basically said there have been tons o delays. I think it had to do with the designing/engineering of the ramp. These suckers will wash away in a heartbeat if not planned perfectly.

Yes, they are the same bridge. Just depends on what side you approach from.
