There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar
Great expectations, everybody's watching you
From "New Kid in Town" by The Eagles
When catomcat suggested the name "A New Bridge In Town" for my original bridge multi, this song began running through my head; only instead of a new kid, we have a new bridge here in town. This suspension bridge spanning I-280 is a marvel of engineering and you'll get to check it out. While here you may want to work on the other multis in the area, including my original "The New Bridge In Town", GC1KYAJ. I originally intended to archive this one due to occasional muggle traffic but was talked ut of doing so.
This multi should take about half an hour to complete. The cache size is larger than most micros (small trade items will fit) but too little to be really be a small (most log books would not fit).
4/21/11: Sad to say, vandals have been at work again. One baby quail is now missing.
6/15/12: I've reworked the multi to account for the most recent valalism.
From the starting coords (and closest legal parking) walk north, towards the bridge. You will come to a bronze covey (or bevey) of quail on the some boulders.
With the covey sculpture in front of you, look to your left. Find find the telephone pole with four numbers on it. The black numbers are arranged vertically and all have yellow backgrounds. The bottom number = A.
Add together the number of adult quail, cheepers (baby quail) and birds of prey. The take the sum of these birds and add 1. This = B.
Walk across the bridge and observe the bridge towers (they look like inverted V's). These are what hold up the suspension cables which in turn support the bridge. The number of bridge towers = C.
Once across the bridge follow the foot path. The foot path has dotted yellow lines running down the middle of it. Once the dotted yellow lines end, walk about 11 more paces (big steps) and look to your right. Locate the white sign with red lettering. The number of words in the fourth line on this sign = E.
Now look to your left. You will see a nice place to take a break. Count the number of benches. The number of benches x 2 = F.
Turn around and re-cross the bridge. After you've crossed the bridge looking to your left. You should see a dedication plaque. What year was the bridge authorized? (Note: This is different from the year it was dedicated.) The last digit of the authorization year = D.
The cache is located at N 37.19.ABC W 122 03.DEF. Check sum for solutions A to F = 24.
