Day 146

This bridge didn’t collapse when I walked over it

August 19th, 2010

Therefore, we can further deduce:

CartWeight < [(5 tons) x (Factor of Safety) - MattWeight]

    I believe you’re safe. Happy trails!

  2. Don in Tennessee says:


    If the HOBO PLANET went across this bridge at once we would be in trouble.

  3. John in MI says:

    Dang I should have read the caption first (I was hypnotized by being the first poster.)

  4. Don in Tennessee says:


    i see this bridge was built in Fort Payne, AL-your state!

      ROLL TIDE COUNTRY. This company has the type bridges all over the world. They are pedestrian bridge experts I reckon.

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      OMG! IT was built in Fort Payne, AL! Hah! Thanks to Flickr Zoom, I can SEE that! :)

      Glad the bridge held up for Matt and the Mattmobile! And hopefully everyone else, even those > 5 tons. (but don’t risk it!)

    Great company name – Biltolast ;-)

  6. Melinda, PA says:

    Is Matt wearing a pedometer? … 1,000,000 + steps

  7. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Beauty all around and good thing you didn’t collapse the bridge. At least now you know what your cart doesn’t weigh. Although that bag of yours on the bottom seems to be getting pretty full and nearly hanging on the ground. Is that your hat I see hanging upside down under that water bottle?

  8. Candice In Alabama says:

    This is a great picture of the Mattmobile – I’m inspecting every aspect of it on Flickr! (and the bridge as well)

  9. Jeff says:

    Yea for the bridge…,my that bear spray is sure getting a workout isn’t it. Well lets hope it stays put right there on them handlebars…..any troll’s yet??

  10. Roe says:

    Love that name biltolast products.

  11. Don says:

    The toilet in Matt’s bathroom is reputed to have failed a similar test on one occasion.

    I’m gonna have to just trust you on that one, Matt.
