This page is a tribute to all those who found radical goals and set out to fulfill those goals. Being Radical is for some climbing the highest mountain and crossing continents and for others it's a family vacation. Hopefully we can all agree that what matters is that you get off that couch, switch off the tv, stop complaining on aches, pains, life, work and just go out with family, friends or on your own to do your Radical thing.
Are you Radical...? Let us know and we'll place your story.
Wheelie Walking Trailer - Thailand
Mother and Son Crossing ThailandDominique Brasseur always said to herself she’d use his retirement for long travels on foot. At 65, she joined his son Nicolas on a south-north crossing of Thailand. They started in Betong, the southernmost frontier town, and walked some 3000km, taking their time to visit the country, to arrive on Monday, January 30, 2017 at 1.50 pm at Mae Sai checkpoint border, the official northernmost point of the border with Myanmar (ex-Burma), several months after they had set out.
Dominique Brasseur: My shoulders not being up to carrying a backpack anymore, I could not have realized this dream without the Wheelie hiking trailer. I am grateful to the Radical Design Team for their material and advice before my departure. Back in Bangkok by public transport, we are now continuing our journey on foot to Cambodia. The travel continues, what a pleasure.

We are walking together again"Someone asked me, after Auxerre, what we were going to do now that hiking apparently became to strainful.
Well, I thought of what I could miss out of my backpack and so I came up to 9 kg., With a one person tent, because I had to hike... I even looked for a hiking buddy. But then I found the Wheelie Walking Trailer."

Wheelie Walking Trailer - USA, Canada, Camino de Santiago, New Zealand North to South
Southern California to CanadaDue to a back injury, sixty-five-year-old Ted Stekkinger was unable to carry a backpack to complete his dream of trekking the Pacific Crest Trail to Canada, so he decided to trek with his Wheelie Walking Trailer along alternate routes, aqueducts, and trails, from his home in Ventura, California, to Canada. He completed his goal in the summer of 2015 after trekking 1,435 miles (2,309 kilometers), camping most of the way.
In May to June, 2016, he trekked the Camino de Santiago from Saint Jean Pied de Port, France, to Santiago, Spain, 500 miles (805 km), with his Wheelie.
Then in September to November, 2016, shortly after completing the Camino Francis, he trekked the Camino Via de la Plata, from Sevilla, Spain, to Santiago, Spain, 630 miles (1,014k), with his Wheelie.
And hopefully in September, 2017, he plans to complete a trek from the bottom of the South Island to the top of the North Island of New Zealand, with his Wheelie of course.
Wheelie Walking Trailer Skeleton - USA
National Memorials Run Across AmericaOn March 1, 2016, Jan Walker will depart Oceanside, CA and run across the US to the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial in Washington DC, garnering grass roots support to make this Trail a reality.
Along the way, she will be stopping at local 9/11 Memorials, garnering media support and donations for The 9/11 National Memorial Trail Alliance. They are a 501(c)3 non-profit, working to establish a National Memorial Trail (a multi-use run, hike, bike trail) connecting the three 9/11 Memorial crash sites. It would be the first of it's kind in the US, as there currently are no federally designated "National Memorial" Trails in existence. When it's finished, it will be an approximately 1100 mile long triangle shaped route linking the Pentagon Memorial, Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA, and the National September 11 Memorial in New York City. Currently about 2/3rds of the Trail is set.
We are honored she will be using the Wheelie Walking Trailer while completing the approximately 3000 mile Run for this worthy cause.
You can find out more about the Trail and the Run at the following links:
