Well, if John was just damn too lazy or paranoid that someone would swipe his gold if he made three separate trips, then he'd have to find some way to bring the whole load across in one trip.

If he was a really good party magician, he should be able to make the gold disappear and reappear. ;) Look, there's a quarter in your ear.

Or either he should learn to juggle better than his disappearance act. If he walked across the bridge while continuously keeping one or two pieces of the gold in the air, the total load should be less than the bridge limit.

However, this would probably drive more paranoia into poor John. It would suck to drop one of those gold pieces... not just because you'd break the load limit or even lose the piece over the side of the bridge, but imagine dropping a kilogram of anything on your pinkie toe? Owie.
