SCOTT AND JULIE STEVENSON: 3 STEP HIDEAWAY
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 1/16/17
For the fifteenth installment in our ongoing interview series here at Dirt Orcas we are very pleased to have the opportunity to speak with Scott Stevenson. You may know Scott by his www.advrider.com call sign of “DingWeed’.
Scott has done some pretty excellent riding since picking up his first “off-road” bike in in 2006. The adventure bug hit him hard and he has done trips to Alaska, Baja, up and down the Continental Divide Trail and many many other trips on BDR’s and highlight type roads. He has earned his stripes to say the least.
A few years ago Scott and his wife Julie launched an adventure hub near La Sal, Utah called 3 Step Hideaway. It’s driveway is literally along the Trans America Trail Route in the scenic Colorado Plateau.
While Dirt Orcas and my interviews tend to focus on adventure riders and overland travelers, we also always like to tighten that focus to people who live in an unconventional way. Scott and Julie’s decision to operate an adventure based, old timey bed and breakfast as a headquarters for adventurer certainly fits the mold.
While Moab draws adventure types from far and wide because of its accessibility and world class outdoor recreation, Scott and Julie’s addition of 3 Step Hideaway offers a quieter home-base with similar world class accessibility. With accommodations to wet your whistle, have a great meal, get a great nights sleep, and speak with like minded adventurers, 3 Step is quickly becoming a major destination for overland travels of all sorts.
Scott and Julie are great reminders that a passion for adventure is often as rewarding as the adventure itself.
