Carlos and Ligia are currently in San Francisco, enjoying the sites and preparing for a little training… Maverick’s style. They sent the below image, the two are madly in love and we’re stoked to be a part of it.
Random Golden Gate Fact:
Only eleven workers died during construction, a new safety record for the time. In the 1930s, bridge builders expected 1 fatality per $1 million in construction costs, and builders expected 35 people to die while building the Golden Gate Bridge. One of the bridge’s safety innovations was a net suspended under the floor. This net saved the lives of 19 men during construction, and they are often called the members of the “Half Way to Hell Club.”
