Default Post pics or videos of your backyard track

The here's my backyard track thread was nice. We are getting ready to tear one of ours down and rebuild it sunday. I thought a thread would be nice to show everyone's tracks, and maybe get some ideas and tips if anyone has any.
After looking I actually don't have any pictures on this computer. But I do have videos a friend made of both of them we built this spring.

I don't know how to embed them so here's so me youtube links.
Here is the one we are rebuilding this weekend. We built this one in a day with about 3 of us working on the track and 3 on the stand. At 5:10 is probably the best view of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X0Bx...os=2AfxTSOa1fI

Here's the other track. We put a little more money and effort into it. I think it probably took 2 of us about 2 weeks to finnish. For this one we rented a tamper and did a really good job on the surface. Not to bad for 2 guys that had never even been to an RC track. Kinda shaky camera work, but it was one of our friends daughters running the camera. We were all to excited to run on the track to worry about taping. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywmNi...os=xN7Z0vo-Hyw

Thats a big track, Might wanna try watering it to keep the dust down.
Here is mine. Its a work in progress, but it is coming along nicely. Probably spent about $30 and about 4 hours of work so far. Bought a shovel, a rake, and some weed/grass killer. Its gonna be awesome.

Post'em up boys we need a thread like this, as a one stop shop for track building tips and tricks.
My video is kinda crappy and there is some idiot(Me) talking in the background, but you can see the basic layout.
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.
