Crawler Canyon Park Visit

The weather around Chicago has not been the best in the past few weeks. Sub-zero temps and this past weekend has dumped a lot of snow on us. So, what do you do when you have a itchy trigger finger? Well I went to a local indoor crawler comp to find out if I could scratch my itch. I traveled to [...]


Everybody’s Scalin’ – Favorite Kind of Trail

R/C trailing can be a wildly different experience depending on what area you’re running in. There could be intense technical rock crawling or none whatsoever. Mud and trees or sun and sand. When exploring a new spot, this sort of mystery is part of the experience. It’s weird how my tastes have changed over the years. I used to be all [...]

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.
