“I think that’s what the kids want to do.”
The trip started off with a trip to the California Adventure Center in Santa Rosa, California, but then moved on to Mt.
Whitney, where the kids also met some of the world’s most famous and adventurous mountain climbers.
“There’s a guy named Chris Kress who is the head of the Mount Whitney expedition, and he’s actually a big, big mountain climber,” said Scott, adding that he’s “really into that thing.”
The trip’s final stop was the Biltmore Hotel in Reno, Nevada, where Scott and his wife, Tanya, spent a night on the town.
The boys were able to meet several people on the journey, including a local TV news reporter who has a small family, Scott said.
The kids even caught the attention of the famous mountain guide, Steve McQueen, who asked them to come to his ranch to get his photo taken with him.
“We were pretty nervous because we were a little nervous about what we would see,” Scott said, “and he just said, ‘I can’t wait to have a photo taken, too.'”
The family had a lot of fun, but Scott said the trip wasn’t all sunshine and roses.
“It was a lot harder than we thought it would be,” he said.
“We had a few bumps along the way.
We got a couple of scares.”
