Most concerned with these 2 big jumps first.

Anyone have a bobcat/ excavator lol/ digging machine?
Going to be digging out of a pond that is already there but 95% dry.

Ill offer $200 for a 12hr day.

(excavator im lookong at is $300 something per 24hr)
They are building a bmx track out in Katy. There used to be jumps out there for bmx but they are long gone now. What land are you building on?

Also, you might try and get in toutch with the new track owners. See if they would be down for something you want or build some bmx dirt jumps. Not just a BMX race track. Chris at ORP know more about all that. He is posting pictures of them building at the track on his FB.

Yes sir. Has been a while. So are you riding the big line at the anthills?
We need more diggers and less freeloaders.
I have been too busy with other things to even go out there.

Along the bayou near memorial and dairy ashford. South side of Bayou.

I've been there a couple times when they were doing CX races. Otherwise it's too far to ride the BMX, and the road/track bikes don't do too well, especially clipped in

So... are you building this stuff for everyone else? You cant ride or dig. If there are any kind of bicycle jumps made out of dirt they will need to be maintained and built by someone and you cant do it because your knee.

I had the use of a tractor at a dirt track to build me some bmx jumps and still had to do a lot of it by hand. had to shape and the jumps after they piled the dirt. The bigger they are the more shaping you are going to have to do.

I know if i build it dope/fun, ppl will come.

Really need this 1st table then the 2nd set, big short step up, soft landing for trying anything. Coughflipwhipscough. J/k. Not yet.
You build it and maitain it and I will be there. I wont have time to go build there but I wouldnt mind coming out and riding. Build it big. We dont want sissy jumps. Put Houston on the map!

Double the pond.... eventually we gotta get some rain again... and you'll have a use for that pond when the knees are gone. :-)
