Scott’s Adventures

What is adventure? Adventurers are like explorers. You could say an adventure is poorly planned and you got more than you bargained for; or, you could say your playing with the mysteries of life and pushing the boundaries of what it means to be human. These are stories of Scott’s adventures through life, like riding a bicycle around the world, being the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina and — hopefully — many more, big and small.

Scott Stoll Wants To Go To Mars And Never Come Back

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.

Aquatic Bicycle Ride

If you didn’t know, I rode a bicycle around the world, and the most popular question was: “How did you ride a bike across the ocean?” My favorite joke was to say: “I just put extra air in the tires.” Now the joke has come true.
