The custom widget is cool, but I need Curtis or Rogue (I'm not picky) to build me a custom made wall for our affiliate...

Great use of the new wall. But looking at the enlarged pic, I would NEVER want to walk past that thing too close! Check out the steel threaded rod sticking out of it on the left side!!! OUCH!!

We are working on a kit so you can pick up the lumber and build your wall. I am on it!

Peshaw Tom!!! Like Kurtis has the time to build a wall. You need LAURIE to build it. I just made Kurtis drill the pilot holes for the bolts because I suck at pilot holes. (oh, and he had to move it - strongman in action - it weighs a TON, even in 3 peices.)

JP - The lake isn't it's fianl home, we need to take it apart one more time then we'll cut those nasty lengths off. We warned everyone about them beforehand so no one got near them, while climbing or throwing.

Thanks Lis!

Laurie

And here I thought Laurie was just more bad*** than most. "You want to climb the wall? Yeah? Well try getting over these bolts! Now take off your shoes! I've sprinkled some broken glass on the other side. Let's see how bad you are now!" (** Waves fist and utters warrior cry.)

Ummm Lisbeth you do realize you just gave Laurie and Kurtis a new idea for using the wall in a WOD right? Broken glass burpee wall climbs!

Ooooh, Tom! Good idea! I'll use that for the next kids class :)

Thanks Frank, It's been quite a ride!
