Swamp bridge anchoring

anchoring the swamp bridge so it won't float away again

1. Re-attach 2 pieces at the center of the swamp bridge.

2. Pound in metal fence posts on all 4 corners.

3. Secure each post to the side with an exterior screw.

The next flood will be the real test to see if all this prevents it from floating away.

What if you created a deflector so the flood waters gently flows over the bridge instead of slamming right into the side.
