I have a new bucket list item. It involves having a really nice backyard and an absolute ton of Hot Wheels and track. When you see the backyard that was recently converted into a man's Hot Wheels playground, you'll understand why.

I have done a lot of digging, but can't locate exactly where Backyard Racing creates his Hot Wheels creations. I found his latest massive effort trending on Digg. He gives some backstory about how (and why) this layout came into being:

You'll zoom across tree branches, floating platforms, toy construction zones, and a wood block castle finish line. There's jumps, loopty loops, boosters, tunnels, and even a close call with a shark! This tree track took 1 month to construct using a variety of materials including wood, ladders, kiddy pools, string, pulleys, a fishing pole, cordless drill, PVC tubing, blocks, plastic container tubs, cardboard boxes, pool noodles, our dog Kodi the Australian Shepherd, and numerous Hot Wheels products.

Seeing is believing. This is what happens when you allow a man's brain to think for an entire month without any female intervention.

So many highlights, but here are a few of my favorite moments. Bonus points for including the family dog in his project.

A shark attack is mandatory for most things designed by men.

So this is why he wanted a new drill for his birthday.

I give a standing ovation to this guy for helping me understand what my real dream is. Now to explain to my wife why I need several hundred feet of Hot Wheels track.
