Another Installment of "If I Only Had a Yard"
(Previous Installment--in case you're wondering.)
Jeremy Reid is the coolest dude in Newcastle, Oklahoma. How many guys have what it takes to construct their own personal roller coasters in their backyards? About ten years ago, while he was still in college, Jeremy began building the coaster of his dreams out of plain-old wood and nails. Not only did he have no experience with roller coaster engineering, he'd never built ANYTHING before he started his project.
The coaster cost $5500 and took four years to complete. But it works! Read more here, and be sure to check out Jeremy's website.
