Fun Facts about Scott
What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I am hooked on fishing. I fly fish in the spring, summer and fall, and I ice fish in the winter. Last winter I went ice fishing every weekend from January to late March.
Do you like to plan things out in detail or be spontaneous?
I cannot function without planning things out. It drives some of my friends crazy, but I need to know what I’m doing, where I’m doing it, and how long it is going to take well in advance of actually doing anything.
What is one of your favorite quotes?
“The flowers, the animals, the mountains, reflected the wisdom of his best hour, as much as they had delighted the simplicity of his childhood.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What is your favorite sport?
Soccer is the greatest sport in the world. It’s been played for hundreds of years with very few changes made to the rules/equipment. The sport is broadcast in every country, on every continent in the world. Soccer players are the best athletes on Earth, and their fans are extremely passionate.
What causes are important to you?
Environmental Conservation. I’m an avid outdoorsman and an Adirondack 46er. Protecting our planet’s natural resources is as important as anything in my eyes. I support conservation efforts by buying all of the necessary permits for my outdoor hobbies, buying outdoor gear (Pittman–Robertson Act), and conducting myself responsibly in the wilderness. Please don’t litter, there are trash cans everywhere.
