Wheeling:

I've been wheeling all my life, mostly in in Colorado, Utah, Arizzona, California and New Mexico. One of my most recent trips was to Tellico. It's a different kind of wheeling on the east coast, but the people are great and the wheeling is a kick in the butt.

Editor's Note: Scott is an avid four wheeler and the 2000 President of the Colorado Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Inc. Scott has also played a big part in getting the Independence trail system open.
