Scott A. Mitchell's personal interests
Besides my technical background, I have a longstanding interests and some formal education in sociology, history, and economics. The older I get, the more I value the breadth of my liberal arts undergraduate education; I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
I like pretty much every outdoor activity that doesn't involve motors or bullets. My favorite activities include bicycling (road or mountain), skiing (mainly cross-country skiing, to avoid the chairlift thing), hiking, canoeing, boogie boarding, swimming, gardening, fishing, bird watching, camping, cooking and eating. I have been a Boy Scout Scoutmaster, soccer coach and soccer referee.
My soul finds rest as my body wanders the mountains.
Indoors, I enjoy long dinner conversations, movies, boardgames, computer strategy games, pinball, and reading stories of adventure and comptemplation.
