IMPORTANT NOTICE - PLEASE READ

This is the OLD version of BridgeToGantry.com.

You will find the NEW version by clicking here.

BTG will be in a transition period for the next couple of months. During this time I will be refreshing and updating the best static content and porting it over to the new system. This older version of the site will remain online for an extended period, but you will only find the newest stories and information on the new site.

Thanks, Dale."

VIDEO: The closest thing to crashing... without crashing!
