    I'm Jealous and want to do this

    Family built a luge/sledding track in their backyard. Have heard of this but never seen one until the news last night.

    Cologne 'luge' track is Perk approved

    I'm disappointed this isn't a thread about someone's mother.

    Re: I'm Jealous and want to do this

    Very cool! Making memories for the kids and have a cool video to look back on.

    On a side note, of course the pessimist in me is thinking of neighborhood kid who goes down the luge and breaks their arm then their a-hole parents sue the homeowners.

    I want one!


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Re: I'm Jealous and want to do this

    That would be a blast. Of course you have to have the right kind of a yard to be able to set up something like that. Should have tried something like that at the old Country Club back in the ISU days.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Growing up on the outskirts of town we did this annually. We would set up two next to each other so we could race!

    Read this one if you are so inspired. Dad builds the luge run and his son makes the Olympics. Pretty slick.
