    Do You Want A Quick Trip?

    Here's 24,509 meters in record time:

    I guess Stephen can tell you better than I, but there is a bridge some
    where near Clearwater,Fla. that is at least five miles long. My parents
    took me through there when I was a kid on vacation. It's just you,
    the road with ocean water on both sides for miles.

    Wow CD, two very interesting videos. What a long tunnel, I have only been through fairly short ones. There is a tunnel a few miles away that we went through, but that was a tunnel over a canal, and we were on a canal boat. it seemed very long because we were going very slow, and we had to wear waterproofs because water was dripping down.

    The second video I would like to see slowed down.

    Hi Judy,
    You might be thinking of the Tampa Skyway bridge that is 4 miles long over the bay coming in to Tampa. Further south (southernmost) is the 7 mile bridge from the lower Keys to Key West. The first time I drove over it I had "white knuckles" but eventually did get used to it. The water is very shallow at that point; you have probably seen in several movies (one of them is True Lies).

    As for tunnels, the longest one I have been through was the "chunnel" but I thought it quite a boring ride as there is nothing to see. Even when coming out the end in Calais it was still boring due to the high berms built on both sides. I like to watch the scenery, especially on train rides. I love the trains in Europe, but the Eurostar had to be perhaps the worst trip...especially after all the hype about it. To me, the TGV rocks. I look forward one day (hopefully) to a trip on the Orient Express and the Royal Scottsman.

    Oh CT64,

    You ARE incorrigible - Good Grief!
