“Long” bridge

By: Kevin

We are currently in Largo, FL for the winter. There are 3 bridges that crisscross Tampa bay in the area. At the start of each one is a sign that warns “Long bridge, check gas”. We traveled all three today and used the trip odometer to determine the longest of these three bridges is under 9 miles long.

First of all, if you can’t make it another 10 miles you really need to already be looking for a fuel station. 

Secondly, this spring we traveled across the oil fields of Texas where we could go up to 100 miles between towns that offered fuel…without any warning signs at all. “Long” distance is apparently very relative depending on where you are located.
