Makeshift Trials Course

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I know this topic has been discussed before and there are whole threads
made for this, but I felt this would *really* help a lot of people with
ideas. So..

If your parents are like mine, they think that having to many pallets
looks trashy. My parents only let me have three. But after a couple of
hours of work, I made a complete course that my parents love as do I.
So, I've compiled the pictures below...
Dirt before course. I prefer a hard take off surface, and this dirt
wasn't doing it for me.

So, I found a thick board, and dug a hole for it into the ground. This
gives me a strong takeoff surface

Next, I installed another board. This is a wide takeoff bit of plywood.
I like it because It is strong enough (if installed in the ground [*dig
hole*]) and will not break

Here we have the three pallets. I got two from Home Depot-just took
them from back, and one from safeway-got it same way

Easily one of my favorite things. Believe it or not, this is actually
three strong, sturdy, individual, stackable pallets. Your parents will
love it because it takes up little space. Altogether (when stacked)
only takes up size of one. Now, to put this with palets, if you place
these palets with everyother pallet, you can easily double the amount
of pallets you currently had. I mean to say, you put the pallets in
this order rising up, stackable, wood, stackable, wood, stackable,
wood, etc.

These are three induvidually 15 inch stairs. Now, I realize that you
guys most likely don't have three individual stairs , but I was
hoping this would encourage you to be thrifty, and use what you have.

Re: Makeshift Trials Course

I just put up a little, and I mean -little- trials course in my
backyard. Since my backyard area is sparse, its a little tough, but
I've got an elevated 4x4 beam to balance on, then a drop off to a
square wooden plank, then a skinny piece of wood to ride on, then
another 4x4 to finish it off. I might get some old tires in there to
jump on tomorrow. Besides the shortness of it, the course is pretty
good and I definitely look forward to adding to it soon
