That is quite the plan. I will PM you tonight, if you can get your foot in the door with sewer/waterline hook ups with the city, i would aim high and go straight for the prize! that is good work, and there is always sewer lines and water lines breaking in my city that they rip up the whole front yard for.

That is pretty awesome that you have the dream to build a motocross track, i always go to the silverdome(the old Detroit Lions statium) they have motocross in there every year and they haul in thousands of yards of soil for the event and work around the clock for weeks to get everything set up perfectly

Oh yeah its lucrative. I've got a buddy who's dad has an in with one of the larger suburbs around here that is doing the sewer/water and let's just say he's not hurting lol. There is one more plan we have with excavations that ill tell you about via PM.

From what I remember there Hasnt been a supercross in Detroit for a while but same concept ha. My dream is to one day be the company that does all the track building/tear down for the AMA supercross series, they start building the tracks Tuesday or so for a Saturday race and then are usually completely outta there by Monday and off to the next race. However the more obtainable goal is owning a track or two that is apart of the local motocross series and then doing a bunch of the county fair races but make the tracks actually legit unlike what they are now which is usually small and tiny jumps.

I didnt use 2x8's for the back, i used a piece of plywood. 15/32" thick. I drilled 2x6's to the back of the piece of wood (on both sides, the top and a cross support) and left a 3" overhang on either side so it would sit flush with the sides when fully closed. I used 3, hinges on the top of the door so when the dump bed is up, it swings open and then i can drive away with the leaves coming out and the door closes when the dump bed is down.

Sorta have a problem with the dump mechinism right now and hoping to get it fixed soon, but it may just be hand unloading them until i get the dump fixed.

I can get some pictures tomorrow if you want.

Lmk,

Jason

Yup, sad how that works.... seems to be a theme on LS.

Your yards look amazing! Some of the best mowing I have seen.
