It’s a pretty interesting device that allows for pretty much any modern smartphone or GoPro to be mounted in it.What it does is stabilize the device that you mount in it. This produces smooth video footage while you’re moving.I pair the gimbal with an app called Filmic Pro. Filmic Pro is a pretty useful app that integrates with the Smooth 4 very...

Route Making 101 http://chadneu.com/route-making-101/ Sat, 08 Dec 2018 23:36:15 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=741 Running in the wilderness can be intimidating for a variety of reasons. Knowing where you are, your route, and how to get to safety shouldn’t keep you out of the woods. I use a pretty simple setup to make sure I always have the maps, trails,and routes I’ll need on a run. The tools I use are Caltopo and Backcountry Navigator Pro(Android). Backcountry has a free trial, I believe, but it&#

Table Rock Wilderness http://chadneu.com/table-rock-wilderness/ Sat, 24 Nov 2018 23:57:15 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=710 This is looking at Table Rock from the Saddle Trail. I haven’t been able to find time for the North Umpqua run yet so I decided last weekend to head out to the Table Rock Wilderness. TRW is a beautiful little area. It’s basically a couple of mountain ranges, 3, that extend out from Rooster Rock. Part of what makes TRW so incredible is Pechuck Lookout. It’s a STONE lookout tower.

North Umpqua Trail FKT Planning http://chadneu.com/north-umpqua-trail-fkt-planning/ Sat, 17 Nov 2018 18:41:13 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=683 My next challenge is going to be the 80 mile North Umpqua Trail. This trail is a bit special to me. I’ve spent a lot of time on this river but only explored about a third of the actual trail. Terrain wise the trail varies a good amount. The eastern end is up in the Cascades and goes into the river valley as you go west. I’m running downhill on purpose to make it a bit easier but also...

McKenzie River Trail http://chadneu.com/mckenzie-river-trail/ Sat, 17 Nov 2018 18:24:47 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=671 Image Credit: SingleTracks.com So this last weekend my friend and I decided to run the McKenzie River Trail. It’s a 26 mile trail that goes along the McKenzie River. You get to experience a couple lakes, reservoirs, water falls and tons of amazing bridges. The McKenzie River Trail has been on my bucket list since I started running. My father and grandfather both grew up along this river.

This would be fun. http://chadneu.com/this-would-be-fun/ Tue, 06 Nov 2018 21:32:13 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=655 There’s an old railway that a group is attempting to turn into a trail/path. It’s called the Salmonberry Railroad and it goes from Tillamook to Banks through the Tillamook State Forest. It’s a very interesting area. It even has an old abandoned railroad town called Enright. I’ve been on the railroad before. Sarah and I ran from Lower Salmonberry Trailhead to Enright.

Silver Falls 50k http://chadneu.com/silver-falls-50k/ Mon, 05 Nov 2018 18:20:32 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=646 This was a super fun event! It started off pretty uneventful. My drive down there was pretty standard. I got up at 4am for a 7:30am start. I arrived with about a half hour to spare. My nerves seem to have kept me from emptying myself which lead to some issues during the race. I started off decently well. I figure I was somewhere in the top 35 for the first 10 or so miles. I was feeling pretty good.

Alsea Falls Hell of the Northwest 2018 http://chadneu.com/alsea-falls-hell-of-the-northwest-2018/ Tue, 16 Oct 2018 02:01:00 +0000 https://chadneu.com/?p=552 This past weekend was the Hell of the Northwest Half Marathon up at Alsea Falls. I think I’ve run this course like 6 times in competition, probably a dozen or more total. My goal time going into it was 1 hour and 38 minutes. I wound up doing 1 hour 46 minutes and some change. So about 8 minutes short of what I really wanted. I placed 5th overall and 1st in my age group. Overall I’.
