Buy Scott’s Life

Once again I’m making some painful sacrifices for an adventure that I hope will reap lifelong rewards. In this case, it will be the Falling Uphill Book Tour. Yes, that is the garage I live in. It’s actually very nice and cost over $100,000 to remodel. It comes with a cute picnic table in the backyard and you’re very own redwood tree.

I always wanted a Jeep. This is especially hard to part with.

For sale:

Everything except my bicycle must go.

  • Jeep.
  • Small 400 square foot cottage (read: rent a pricey, but very nice remodeled garage) in Santa Barbara, CA.
  • Graphic design career.
  • Log bed.
  • Handmade Afghanistan rugs.
  • Expensive paintings.
  • Plus all the annoying little things no man should ever have to buy, like a broom and dustpan.
  • And, perhaps a date with my ex-girlfriend. She recently wrote to me, “I just wanted to warn you that I updated my info and I canceled our relationship on Facebook.” You’ll only get a date provided you want to get married, have kids and aren’t planning on bicycling off into the sunset. (Okay, of course, I’m not being serious, but you see the problem of being an adventurer.)

Any reasonable offer accepted.

Returning home as an essential part of travel

An introduction to enjoying the little things in life and finding an adventure right in your own backyard. Before I even returned home from bicycling the world, I wondered if I would see everything in a new light of wisdom, or whether I might die of boredom.

Roommate at the Museum of Science and Industry

Once again I have applied to be a roommate at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Above you see what would be my bedroom. I also imagine my bicycle, the bicycle that went around the world, occupying a very important corner, along with some maps and photos. I considered my journey as an empirical study of the meaning of life.

Here is video application to be a roommate at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.
