Building & Riding a Gnarly Teeter Totter

Today, we'll build Berm Peak's very first teeter totter, and connect the rock garden to the skinny Elm'r Fudd bridge. This mountain bike trail is now packed with back to back features, that you need to be seriously well rounded to clean. It'll be interesting to show others this line!

    Seth, I think you should really make this small pole that you stick in the ground where you then connect your winch if the Gator needs pulling. My dad made one for our truck and I have to say, it works pretty damn good.

    Great job! One of the best things I've learned was how to build and install heavy objects by myself doing exactly what you did. The hardest part is learning to skip beast mode from the beginning and spend that 30 seconds thinking of a way to help yourself. Loved the music from the Arkansas video (opening music on this video). Come on back, Northwoods and Cedar Glades has grown!
