I Just edited the OP (Original Post) so all the stages of the build are there. I wish i would have reserved a few more posts in the beginning of the thread to help with spreading things out. Up till now though all photos taken along the way are in the 1st post so you guys don't have to go nuts looking for this stuff. I will also write up a little step by step tutorial when I have some time. This is all being done by hand so it will take a bit longer for the final product

I can only imagine how much hard work it is to do it all by hand

To be honest the hardest part was prepping the ground. The clean-up along with spreading and packing the dirt was a SOB. Laying the pipe and building jumps is almost fun. You get to run your car and test jumps before building the downsides Take off and landing take about 1 hour each.

4 guys. 2 bringing wheelbarrows back and forth while 2 groomed the jumps. 10' wide lanes get quite a bit of dirt per jump and landing.

I hit the jumps pretty hard and just took a couple feet off my actual landing.
