    Our plans finally worked out, and now we have the beginning of our dream land. Machines are neat...


    The loader (thanks to Larry from trek bikes)



    The plot of land we have to work with



    The dirt piles are in place, the trenches are dug...



    The last jump/practice jump landing, with a size reference



    Myself guinea pigging the first one






    More to come, this place will be epic. Putting northern Colorado back on the map!

    All you had to say was "dirt + machines" and I was here.

    Looks fun, enjoy the machines.

    Nice!! That place could be epic. Jumps look good sized. Too bad there's no trees... maybe you could plant some.

    Looks like it is going to be nice.

    Is this on public or private land?

    Thanks for the stokage!

    Yep, trees would be nice, as wind is definitely a factor. As more jumps take shape we'll see what we can do.

    Jumps range from 15-20 feet gap, 5-7ft lip as of right now. We'll probably have to fine tune some things though once we get everything packed and shaped

    This is all on private land, so no worries about authorities or neighbors, which is a big plus.

    We're planning on getting a skid steer in there sometime next week to make some piles for the middle line

    Less like a big pile of dirt and more like some jumps:

    Proper air:

    Improper air (he landed in the trench and missed the entire landing haha):
