Default Hopping Kangaroo

Over on abpw I posted a link to a video of a hopping roo. I then
offered to share a rough plan and a few tips on making one.
It seems to have been quite popular so with the coming Christmas season
I thought I'd share it with the wider rec audience.

The video is he

Funny how much of a buzz I am getting from seeing this be so popular.

I hope a lot of kids enjoy it.

reward, expected or not, but the reward is often something that
can't be "monetized" - but often priceless.
