This is my third video for Survivor. It’s been my dream to get on this show since episode 1. I think I would be both entertaining and competitive. If nothing else, I think fans would enjoy watching the man who cycled the world embarrass himself at the physical challenges. Wish me luck!
My award arrived in the mail for the anniversary edition of Falling Uphill. Yay! You could call this my coming of age journey. The sequel is planned for 2037. I imagine I’ll have some interesting perspective as I do it all again. Well… maybe not the whole world via bicycle. Thank you Next Generation Indie Book Awards

A guide for the complete beginner Well, the first step, as you can see, is to get a cat that walks over your keyboard and thumps his tail on your microphone when you least expect it. (Below is a close up of how he likes to edit my books.) Okay, seriously, I’m not a professional,… Continue Reading
Editor’s Note: Here’s another great infographic with over 50 original drawings of cyclists. And, I’m one of them. And—Yes!—it looks like me. Scroll down and try to find my favorite 3 places to cycle tour in the world. All the other bicycle tourists contributed a lot of great suggestions that I’ll have to add to my bucket list of places to cycle. (I need a bigger bucket.) Thanks again to Mads for all the hard work that goes into collecting this information and making it look pretty. If you like this, see Mads’ other that shows 121 examples of trips that other bicyclists took.
This career-changing and life-changing event led to the incendiary moment which compelled me to ask, “If I could do anything, what would I do?” And if you know me, you know my answer was to ride a bicycle around the world and find the meaning of life and happiness or die trying. Well, I came close to dying, but I lived to write my best-selling, independent book Falling Uphill about my quest for happiness
Welcome to all our new friends from the Bookexpo America. My partner, Dr Sara Williams, and I had a great time participating as both educators and authors. Pictured above is myself with Marcia Clark, infamous for being the lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trials. I actually watched these trials live long ago while I… Continue Reading
Sometimes Scott Stoll dreams of that first day on Mars. He steps outside, the rusty red rocks kicking up a fine dust beneath his feet. He is in an extra-terrestrial bowl surrounded by an eroded rim that rises gently on the horizon, forming the lip of a vast crater.
Scott attempts to circumnavigate North America on a bicycle towing a trailer of books. Unexpected Success! Update 02-2015: Though I stopped traveling by bicycle, the book tour continued in unexpected ways to make Falling Uphill an Independent Bestseller. I even got to go to Argentina as the Honorary Cultural Ambassador. And best of all hundreds… Continue Reading
A quick update: There are less than 600 applicants left to be an astronaut with Mars One. I had my job interview today with Dr. Norbert Kraft. You’ll have to wait for the results on February 16th. I can’t talk about it yet. Visit me on the Mars One website.
