When not working on his next novel or painting watercolors, you might find the author wandering the red-rock deserts of Utah or Arizona. Scott is an old desert rat in his own right, and he would be happy to run into Hayduke himself out there on a trip one day. The two would likely hit it off famously, especially if Bonnie were along.
In his spare time Scott studies ontological arguments and manages really big software development programs. For this later role he has found his Berkeley philosophy degree, as well as his time in a Buddhist monastery, of indispensable value.
Of course, if the Five Dumb Guys did exist, Scott would be a charter member.
