From here I rode the whole SCT and then continued on to the NCT up to the Putman border. I was unsuccessful at finding the progress being made at connecting south and north.

From the Putnam border, I rode to Golden's Bridge. My favorite "bridge out" bridge [see hannah's October 2001 report], on Plum Brook Road, which sometime after 9/11/01 was blocked by a fence [see hannah's September 2002 report], was easily accessible on both sides because someone had clipped the fence.
