Log Bridge

Saturday was log-moving day and the local leaders coordinated work to somehow improve the bridge. Until one man got seriously injured, the work progressed. Once he was taken away, everyone lost heart and the log stayed in its place on the ground about 100 feet from the river gap. This was our problem solving example in the teaching to take place the next week.

Oh how I wish they would have finished the upgrade. This bridge was nerve wracking to cross. Children cross in the water, people with loads cross in the water, helpers are available to walk you across if so desired. I can’t figure out why they don’t just nail up a railing or drag that last log another 100 feet. Perhaps my problem solving exercise should have had a hands-on component J
