That's a huge amount of cedar waiting to be used! 

Is the plan for one long ladder bridge from top to bottom? 😃

That would be something eh?

The top wood feature is around 250 feet long and we decided to replace the whole thing due to its age.

250 ft works out to about 50 10' sections of stringers then add in 2 X 8' stringers for supports every 10' and you end up with a good amount needed.

We are also rebuilding the 100' coaster down near the 2nd teeter that was taken out a few years back and have all the wood ready for that as well.

The DNV has been great in getting us 90% of all that wood from various sources from all over the DNV. Our only job was to get it to the work sites.

That must have taken a huge amount of effort to get it on site.

Kudos!! 👍

Looking forward to giving it a try when it's ready. Are there likely to be any public trail days?

(I've not been keeping up on trail days with all the COVID related shit going on...)

God I love Pipeline. It’s a real MTB trail! Janky in parts. Rough in parts. Roots and rocks in all the inconvenient places. Love it. 

Thanks Silk.

Wait, he has a consecutive skinnie teeters tied to together with rubber?  That's f'n amazing. 

That was the coolest attainable stunt that I never managed to ride, that and the swivel totter on Air Supply, even though I tried a bunch. The high stuff on those trails was way out of my league, but I always wanted/thought I could to do the tech moves.

DD, you are so good, you could ride the invisible skinnie in between the 2 visible skinnies. 

KUDOS, love your vids man.
