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.

Are you sure this wasn't on the ISLE OF SHITE?

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.
