Back Yard MTB Pump Track.

So today I committed to building my back yard trail, well we decided to do a simple oval pump track for now. It will have two nine foot radius banked turns and 6 3x3x8’ rollers on each side, with maybe some skinnies in the middle making an X. Anyway. This happened today.

I haven’t bought any dirt yet, but started taking some from the yard. Thankfully clay is plentiful here. Scraping the sod off the top is the worst part. Also the kid found this. It’s an old odd chick of iron, he’s very proud.

In other news I bought my first wheelbarrow today, and during that process I learned that it’s not called a wheel barrEL. I always thought it was like a barrel on wheels...
