old photos - from mini ramp in Gobowen

Postby Ben-G » Wed Jul 17, 2013 8:43 pm

Now for my latest uploads I need your help please! Where was this ramp?

I think we are talking early 90s, and have a feeling it was in mid-Wales somewhere. It was quite elaborate, but hidden away in some woods, and I think was strictly an un-official construction! Anyone know where it was???

Definitely early 90s. Look at the haircut.

That does indeed look well rad.

Yeah positive it was in/near Wales. I need to track down ponytail boy as he might well remember where it was (he is a grown up civil engineer now working on bridges, and bizzarely for a while before my old man retired, they worked together renovating/rebuilding little bridges out in the Shropshire countryside).

Wow that is great! And thanks you for your hard work all those years ago. More pictures would be ace - I only had these couple of snaps.

I see you are on post number 1 so firstly welcome, and secondly excuse my basic advice that if adding photos on MAS it is much easier to upload them to photobucket/facebook/etc. first and then just link to them on here.
