    Default Man made obstacles

    I was checking out a post on NOVA Jeepers and noticed a set of obstacles someone had made for some technical skills day they have.

    Here is a photo. I figured I would share it incase anyone else ran something similar in their club.

    Doesnt seem very safe
    Looking at the angles of approach, wouldnt you have to anchor it to the ground?

    I'll have you know that it is almost completely organized. Long term storage has been moved to the attic. Hard top storage cart is built and in use. All of the power tools are on rubber isolation mats and a steel wall locker has been put into service keeping any gear from becoming adrift. The welders are lined up neatly against the bulkhead on their respective carts and both of the Harleys now have plenty of breathing room.

    See...if your happy ass wasn't up in Delawhore, you'd know that! LOL

    I made a suggestion in the original post about these obstacles on nova jeepers that they use some herculiner or something on them to keep them from being too slippery if they get wet.

    I don't think the safety issue is in the construction of the obstacles... It's in someones fat girlfriend shifting her butt around in the cab while said balancing act is taking place....
