A Brief History
While many Tiny Truckers probably grew up in the R/C hobbies that just wasn’t the case for me. I grew up exploring the outdoors. Summers as a child were spent running through the woods, exploring caves, and climbing what seemed at the time to be cliffs and redwoods. We rode bikes and played backyard football, soccer, wiffleball, baseball and everything in between. As childhood gave way to my teenage years we didn’t stray far from the woods. In place of climbing trees we now mountain biked miles and miles every day, rappelled and camped, fished and hunted.
R/C for me wasn’t even a twinkle in my eye. In truth none of my friends participated in it either, I’d never really even heard of it except for cheap toys that broke and were viewed as a waste of time.
Life as Young Adult
By the time I graduated high school not much had changed as far as my interests went. Varsity soccer was now over but the outdoors was far from over. Having a car never meant that I gave up my interest in almost all things outdoors.
