Howdy Fellow ScumBags,This is my first post here on the TeamScum blog so i might as well introduce myself! My name is Arlyn and im a Van Dweller. My mom has come to terms with my lifestyle and preferred living method and has taken to calling me that over more common terms such as Dirtbag, Scumbag, Homeless, Derelict or Vagrant. I like to go kayaking and when im out on the river i usually bring my camera. Since this is my first post i figured i would give paddlers what they really want and that's carnage. Check out some of the action at this past Green Race.In other news some Folks in Long Creek decided to race the Chattooga. I figured it would be a nice way to escape Asheville so i busted on out of town after school on Friday. Quite a few people made the hike down the hill to watch the race. Chris G ended up taking top honors but that packs were pretty tight. So close in fact that we got to see some folks boofing on top of those stuck in the hole at Soc em Dog.That's Eli Helbert going off the PadThen Zach De......

Well it seems that I have been invited to participate on this blog as the token mountain biker. I'd like to introduce myself more as a member of the DSC or Dangerous Sports Club. I like fear. It is a great teacher. The skills that I acquire while facing my fears in sports I apply to love, life, and the resolution of my karma.I found teamscum by a sticker that said "support soulful lifestyles". From that moment I was hooked. I sent some emails and some pics and became an honorary member. I won't bore you with too much blah blah, here's the cool shit I did recently to scare myself.This is Sam's Branch coming off the backside of Sam's Knob about a week ago. The climb was about 1000' of elevation. We meandered over frozen pools and up small falls for about 2 miles until we got to the top. The final pitch was about 100' of verticle and near verticle. We free climbed (no ropes) the entire creek.At moments on the falls, you could hear the water roaring underneath you, the ice gently vibrating. The ice wa......

El Rio Nevado is a must run river while visiting the Pucon area. The river is short but sweet. I would recommend running it with someone familiar since there are a few tricky spots along the way and simply finding the put in and take out can be difficult. To find the river first take the road to Huife then head towards Lefincul when the road forks. Soon after the fork there is a bridge, after that a road off to the left. Follow this road to get to the put in. Water level, visual. Class V.This is the put in. The take out is about 1 mile down the road through a little nook next to the road. Make sure you locate the correct take out above a very deep difficult gorge. The rapid here was run by the demshitz crew but i decided it was a bit gnarly for myself.// the first rapid // photo:vallentine grollemund // paddler:mike goglin// this is the 2nd rapid // photo: jakub sedivy // paddler:mira kodadaThis is the fourth rapid. This is where the river gets tricky. It is a mandatory 30ftr that you can't see the bottom of ......

El Rio Turbio is about a ten minute drive outside the kayak mecca of Pucon Chile. Along with bearing an awesome similarity to my own title, the river is littered with great rapids. The river follows the path of Volcan Villaricas last eruption. This makes for a unique and sharp river bed. the take out waterfall // photo: mira kodada // paddler: mike goglinTo get to the river start by heading east out of Pucon until you see a sign that reads El Cerduo. This is your turn up the river. If you cross the river on the highway you have gone too far. The dirt road will cross several little streams. Travel about 4 miles up the road until you reach a bridge. This is your take out. put in // photo: mike goglin // paddler: jakub sedivyThe river generally runs after a good rain but can be run low. You can gauge the flow by walking 100 yards down stream to a 25ft falls. If the falls looks good, upstream should be too. Note t......

We here at teamscum.com have taken an unconventional approach to marketing our goods and services. Since we are lacking all of the basic resources necessary to compete in todays marketplace, we generally let people know whats going on by posting in forums and sending out emails. This occasionally offends some people and we think that is awesome. Here is a recent response to one of our latest forum posts from Boatertalk.com: from FlailingProbe, "and while we're at it do you really need to cover every fucking road sign or bathroom near every takout with your stickers?"Thank you FlailingProbe for your insightful observations, and to answer your question, "Yes, yes we do."you can view the details of this post at boatertalk.com...
