Yeah, that box does look fun.

Speaking of smoking, cigarettes are ****... the smell lingers on you for hours, and your lungs feel ****ed up.

All is true. Cigarettes are bad, no matter which way you spin it. Try to get rid of them things.

That looks almost exactly like the one I designed and was going to make, except the one i planned was a lil bit bigger and had one more lip on it. However I never got around to making mine.

The thing breaks down into 7 pieces, it sets up in 20 minutes and tears down in 15 minutes.
Its all safe and in the garage by the end of the session.
As for the smoking thing, I have been smoking for 10 years, 15-25 y/o. So I do WANt to quite but Im just not ready yet.

PS>>>>IN Canada people are friendly and Kind, Most the neighbors stop by and ask questions and are really nice to us. They would rather see us riding bikes rather then breaking into their homes. Most of them drive by and wave and give us a smile. Its all good, and its only an eyesore for a couple hours.

I found an abandoned/somewhat hidden tennis court that I think I'm gonna set up a flybox or something in.

Glad you have the sense to understand this Smoothrecluse. They really can not kick you out though, they just levy fines. I got a fine because I had cinch bugs in my front yard and had to resod it. Stupid cinch bug cost me about 1000 sq. feet of St. Augustine sod.

I'm late to the party here (hey, I've been on holiday, give me a break), but my first thought on seeing the photos was:

NICE!

Then I did wonder if the setup was mobile and came to the conclusion that it was. It wouldn't drag down the value of my house, but I could see where it might be a bit too tempting to the local kids who might use it unsupervised, and kill themselves. That would be bad for my insurance . But I'd also noticed the cones surrounding the setup and realised that someone was doing a pretty good job there of warning drivers. So, very nice, Jammer.

Did you make the setup yourself? Parents? Did you have plans, or freehand it?

wfin: notice the OP is in Calgary.

Canucks are used to driving around kids playing in the street, what with our street hockey culture and all that.

His ramp looks like it takes even less space than two teams of kids with two hockey goals.

Years ago, someone called in the cops to complain about my younger brother and his friends, who were playing hockey in our 8-house street, thereby "impeding traffic" and getting ticketed.

The judge laughed the ticket out of existence.

Actually this is my friends BOX and we are all the ages of 25-28, and yes the ramp breaks down into 7 pieces and stores in the garage at nighttime, sets up in 20 minutes and tears down in 10 minutes, Its pretty sweet,My friend Jeff scetched it out and built it, maybve with some online help but all made by him. The kids that come around the hood are like WOW THATS COOL, but we dont let them ride it just because of the fact if they hurt or kill themselves it would be his fault, so we only ride it.

Yes Cones are good because there are a lot of stupid drivers in Canada. So we dont want some idiot to drive into it because Im sure there are some people who are that dumb.

Anyways Thanks for the comments, we are planning on a mini ramp in his back yard, we should be building that pretty soon, Ill post some pics once its done.

That's ridiculous!

At any rate, it's a great setup (or box) you've got there, and I'll be looking forward to seeing photos of the mini ramp. Your friend Jeff is good!
