    Thanks all
    It is pretty stong doesn't really move when riding. We added another 2x6 section at the other end. It is alittle higher then the teeter-tottor and it is about 10 feet long with a drop in it about a 6" drop to another platform.

    We are just learning and experiencing with alot of stuff and we are getting goods at falling as well

    GEESH! That first skinny is WAAAY up there. I get nervous riding the one on my local trail that never gets more than a foot off the ground.

    Very cool! Like the seesaw exit too.

    are those just palms on the sides are those spiky bushes, because if they are spiky, that would SO suck to fall.

    Those are palms but it still cuts you up when you fall. I fell twice yesterday from almost at the top which is right around 4 1/2 feet up. I am all cut up but can't wait to get home and ride and build more.

    the only cost we have in it is $6.00 for nails the rest of it was free from people tearing docks down and throwing pallets away. It is amazing what you get if you just ask people if you can have stuiff. Now we have wood on hand for as long as we want it is great

    Cool I used to set up bridges in my backyard until i installed them at a trail. But they were nowhere as good as that.
