    Aug 7,8,9 Build/Jump at the ranch!

    Hey doods.

    Matty and I are going up to the ranch to prepare more jumps and a trail through a small mountain that is on the land. Eventually, we hope to host events that pertains mostly to dirt jumping, maybe slopestyle for the small mountain. Anyone that wants to come up and camp, help build or just jump can come by the ranch that weekend. Also, we will probably do a sunrise day trip saturday (its about 30 mins away), and we will have halogens and a generator to jump at night.

    The ranch is just outside of sholow across the highway from the white lates golf resort.

    Right now there are a few jumps built and we have the tractor to move all the dirt so manual labor will be at a minimum.

    There is a ton of room to build and we've barley scratched at the surface of what this thing could really be, Steve-o even suggested building a trick pit with a soft landing so we can try some gnarly tricks.

    Its also a great place if you want to ride quads or 4x4 plenty of washes to ride through.

    PM me or reply here and i can give directions or answer any questions.

    Hey I think we are going to roll through Showlow to get to Sunrise then maybe a little candy sesh after. I only got 2 runs last time and that wasn't enough.

    I think we are open to what day we dig and what day we Sunrise, but I'm planning on moving a little bit of dirt each day.

    Building was fun, riding what we got built was better. We walked about a 1/4 miles above what we did here which is just above our existing dirt jumps and looks like we can make it a fun little roller coaster of a time. Not many rocks as we move further up the hill so building will go a lot faster.

    This is just below ^ physicaly, not just here in cyber land


    2 wee drops we made

    Kymster I was talkin with Joe about doing a trick pit. We are all for it; foam, super loose dirt or the big air bag.

    You bring the air bag I'll build the ramp
