Default Here is my backyard scaler course

This is a work in progress & I have plans to do a scale 4x4 garage & wilderness outpost. Would like to eventually add a pond & scale float plane to complete the theme.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun.
Were the rocks there like this or did you haul them all into your backyard?

Yea, it was mostly there to start with. I had to clear a lot of vegetation & I've "improved" a few spots here and there. Mainly to make easy terrain for scale trucks & improve the approach to some of the bridges. I buy a lot of round up & traded an old car for a gas leaf blower this spring. I built some new bridges over the weekend. I'll get some pics up soon.

I have several more pictures on my website (in my signature). Here is the only video I have:
It's old, before I "improved". I don't have a good video camera & my support crew are 1.5, 4 & 6 years old.

also, I'll be updating soon. I just built a 4 bridge "tight rope" across a bunch of rocks that turned out really cool & pretty challenging.

What are your all thoughts on a RC ORV terrain park forum on scale4x4? This area seems kind of buried. I only posted here because pardonmyn00b did and I have bought a bunch of his scale stuff. I've been trying to generate interest in a terrain park forum on RCCrawlers but while there seems to be an interest from users, it's not going anywhere with admin, not sure why. Personally, I find this to be an interesting extension of the hobby. The cross accesorization potential is unlimited. I have a lot of ideas, that I've developed to an extent on my web site but things like putting food on the table for 3 kids gets in the way. Anyway, my interest in developing my "RC ORV" park are strictly scale so maybe scale4x4 is a better avenue anyway, although there are a lot of guys on RCC into backyard comp courses.

This place is stunning. When I come home this winter I will be doing many upgrades to the small course I have. It certainly will not be this large but the bridges you have are a brilliant idea and I may use your design.

Thanks a lot, I appreciate the comments, One bit of info I'll pass along on the bridges is that my first ones were built more scale looking so that the approach, etc looked real. the latest ones have a lot of drops & unrealistic turns which makes them more interesting to drive.
