I've been checking in on this thread since December when I picked up my 1980 Cota 200 to try some vintage competition. I have about 14 acres but it is mostly a field that a local farmer hays so we don't have to mow it. I cut some trees for my father in law the past two weekends and today decided to put the spoils to use... nothing crazy just a little practice area near the house for now...

all of these obstacles are around the perimeter of the same patch of trees so I can enter/exit different ways.









Built this balance beam out of the straightest trunk I had...



Darryl the trials cat gives the beam a run... damn he is good!... a natural



At the back of this field there is about an acre of woods... I cut trails through for the enduro bikes and so my wife can get in with the golf cart to harvest the wild blackberries. When I get time and bored with the current set up I'll cut some side trails and drop some trees for some new practice areas.



Monte on the back trails...

That's my plan... I've had all the MAVT events on my calender this season but other things got in the way.

The road I live on dead-ends into Great Smoky Mountains National Park so it's kinda hilly. I have a singletrack figure-8 cut into the woods behind my house on a hillside that's so steep it's hard to walk up. Once you're up on the 8 it's not bad but the entry and exit are kinda hair-raising.

Apart from that I mostly just ride around the ditch in front of the house and hop in and out of my raised-bed garden (not during growing season, obviously.) One of my friends/neighbors has trials practice field with railroad ties, fallen tree trunks and singletrack to play with.

Oh, and this is my first post in the Trials forum. I have a 1976 TY250 and a 2003 Gas Gas TXT280. Now I just need to learn to ride them.

So glad this thread just got bumped. Recently bought an acre with a wee stream, some bush & plenty of room to build scary obsticules.
Oh, I'd better get me a bike too.

I'm watching....
