    Call the local power company - they might have some old/broken poles that they'd give you for little of nothing.

    If the shoe fits, get another one just like it

    no grass in the back yard no need to mow back there. just a half acre of dirt.

    i'm thinking logs rocks and ruts &amp; mud &amp; holes. i think i'll measure my wheel base and figure out what kinda log placement would be a real challenge to traverse.

    Old tires would be good, and cheap too.

    bury a couple post for winching points( you know just incase a ford might think he would try it) I love the idea of building a Backyard Backcountry Playground. I would get a cat and dig some holes, get some rocks for a mini 'Con, maybe a parked car or two. and post pic when it's all said and done.
