    Building Rad Foam Pit

    Yo yo we are building a rad foam pit up in the high country north of Pinetop. Need some help in sourcing foam though. If you have an old mattress that doesn't have poop stains from grandma or the herpes all over it we want it. Old couch you are about to toss that has a permenant indentation from your fat girlfriend's arse, we want it. Well just the cousions, not the rest of the couch or your fat GF.

    We are hoping to make this into a destination spot to compliment Candy and firewater gods willing Sunrise

    Oddly enough, my wife and I are going to replace our bedroom furniture and our mattress in the next few weeks. I have one of those knock-off temper-pedic memorey foam mattresses that may just be on the chopping block. When are you looking to get the foam?
    Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.

    That's one of the best back yards ever.

    As for size and exiting the pit I have no idea yet. Haven't got that far in my thinking. The speed will be from option A. starter box similar to your B. coming off the up hill trails. Coming off the trails we are planning to make it so you can choose left takes you through some DJ's going right goes into the pit.

    What are your dimensions? What about rain soaking your foam and making it smell like Eabos?

    thanks for the compliment. it as taken a few years to get it to that point. the video doesn't show the shore stunts. the pit is a 25' stop sign that is a little over 6' deep in foam, inside is big enough that i've built a foam landing for that next step to dirt. the dh ramp is a huge structure, about 18' tall and 40' long with a 16' top deck to get settled into your pedels before rolling down. i cut a 4' notch for exit and framed in a small ramp to get out. everything flows very well. most people are as nervious about the roll in as they are about the launch. feel free to come over and check out in person. bring a dh bike and ride mingus while ur here.

    camp verde couple miles nw from casino. and to finish answering mattyboy66 our ranch smells like a ranch no problem with fungus/mold and such. i do cover for monsoon and to protect from uv with big plastic tarp.never meet or smelled eabos (i think) but if he smells like horse poop then i guess he'll have to use the "ouside" bathroom. good luck with recovery tgiles.
