    Not sure if this was mentioned, but get a mirror and light to throughly check out the inside. There maybe some clues written/stamped somewhere not visible.

    I did read it and he didn't say he overstayed it. In fact, he talked about preserving the original finish of the bridge as one of the reasons he went this direction. I'm guessing you are referring to...

    Thanks for letting us know Jon. I followed his blog and corresponded with him a few times. Heck of a nice guy with a great sense of humor and an open heart. He and his family are in my prayers.
