Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Ranger Always Wins

If you’re into scaling odds are you’ve spent time at the local park hitting up the trails. There is also a good chance that you’ve met the local park ranger. Ah yes, the Park Ranger – Judge, Jury, and Executioner. Much like your significant other, if they ain’t happy then no one is happy (on the trail, that is). See, at most [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Can You Have Too Many?

I’ve written before about how the best parts of trail runs are typically the social aspect. It’s always more fun to run with buddies than to go solo. Can you have too many, though? When I got heavy into scaling a few years ago I made it a goal of my fledgling club to have gigantic trail runs and scale competitions. Hey, [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ For the Weekend – Running Trail Runs

I’ve never run an e-mail in this spot before, but reader “Pfuture” sent me a few questions that I thought would be better served to answer/rant here. Hello Doug, One suggestion I have would be doing a guide for new scalers going on rides if you haven’t made one already. I don’t mean to sound bitter, scaling is one of my favorite [...]

Happy Halloween to you and yours! This week we are looking at things that go bump in the night! Running your scaler at night is extremely fun and if you’ve never tried it you really should. It’s becoming more and more popular for clubs to take to the trails after the sun has gone down. The difficulty factor is upped considerably [...]

Any form of competition can be intimidating but you may be surprised at how much you enjoy it if you just give it a try!

Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Roughneck Scalers Trai…

Happy 4th of July! I recently had the pleasure of heading out to one of the first official trail runs for the Roughneck Scalers Missouri Chapter and had a heck of a time. The club originally hails from California but recently expanded to St. Louis, MO due to the exploding scale off-road scene in the area. The trail spot was Bangert Island [...]

Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Cliff Cave Park Trail …

With beautiful weather on tap, last weekend my scaling club decided it would be a good time to explore a new trail. We hit up Cliff Cave Park, just south of St. Louis, MO (a popular spot with the Big Squid Bash Crew), and decided to run a very tight stretch of mountain bike trail to see what it held. [...]

Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Batteries for the Trai…

A few weeks ago I wrote about a recent club outing and tried to answer the question, “What exactly is an r/c trail run?” The article actually spurred a good number of questions from people wanting me to go more in depth on the subject so it’s now going to be a recurring theme. Running on trails with scale trucks presents [...]

Everbody’s Scalin’ For the Weekend – Trail Appeal

My club held our annual pre-Thanksgiving trail run a few weeks ago and despite the temperature being in the low 20s we still had over 30 people show up. Doing three miles of frozen mountain terrain was tough on both driver and vehicle but it was a freakin’ blast! As you check out the pics of our latest adventure below, [...]
