    My Little Man & I walked across the old Route 66 Chain Of Rocks Bridge yesterday. It's a very cool experience. I've done it several times since it opened to the public in 2000. The city of Madison repaired the bridge with state funds. It sits on Chouteau Island on the Mississippi River. The bridge has a history. A few deaths and murders in the 80s & 90s.

    The bridge was also filmed in the ending of Escape From New York. Actually majority of the movie was filmed in East St. Louis & St. Louis.

    Fun Fact.... John Carpenter bought the bridge from the city of Madison for $1 to use it in his film then be sold it back to them for a $1.

    These are my pictures from yesterday... :

    I hate to post anything personal but its the only picture I took of the bridge and this is at the Illinois-Missouri state line. No names but this is my Dad & Son.

    I don't know what those cool looking things sticking out of the water are, but I want to live in one. That building has evil mastermind's lair written all over it.

    They are actually the old Raw Water Pump\Intake Pumping Stations for the old passageway for the boats and bardges to make it through a channel to the west of those chain of rocks. Back in the 1950s (I Think) the Corp of Engineers built a man made channel to the east of the island for barges and ships to avoid those shallow chain of rocks.

    Don't let anybody in the bar see those pics of your family. They'll be photoshopping dicks in their mouths.

    Please don't bother with part 2.
    Escape From New York is an amazing 80s Classic.
    Escape From LA is utter garbage

    I like a lot of those early John Carpenter movies.
    "Halloween", "The Fog", "Christine", "The Thing", "Starman", "Assault on Precinct 13" (the 76' original, not the 05' remake)
