Everybody’s Scalin’ – California Dreamin’

This past week has been a great one as my wife and I flew to California, rented a sports car and drove up and down the coast. As luck would have it, one of her relatives lives in Paradise, CA, a stone’s throw from Chico. So while she was visiting her uncle I managed to sneak into A-Main Hobbies retail [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – You Don’t Have To Go Your Own Way

Whether I’m discussing a club I run with on here or some other corner of the Internet, there always seems to be a few people that chime in with “I wish there were people near me that did this.” I know the feeling, as I used to carry that thought around when I first tried to get into scale crawling. I started with scalers in [...]

Happy Friday all ye faithful. This is, without a doubt, THE best time of the year to go scaling. The midwest temperatures are pleasant, the scenery is great, and trees haven’t started to shed leaves all over the trails just yet. While Spring earns high marks for alleviating cabin fever, Fall takes the cake as far as I’m concerned. While Fall is [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Brown Sound

I recently had the chance to experience an ESS r/c sound system first hand. It was both extremely cool and super loud! Pegging the throttle and hearing the rumble of a big block v8 (that sounded very accurate!) is a lot more fun than I initially thought it would be. There is a by-product of this, however- the oddity of driving [...]
