Remember when I asked for a beautiful and adventurous woman to run away to Mexico with me? Well, I am running away to Mexico and I’m bringing a teammate, but you don’t have to be a woman, and everyone is beautiful. You’ve just got to be ready for a real adventure and have a desire to create a happier healthier world!

I just parted ways with my last business shirt and slacks. I’ve been holding on to one outfit for times when I may need to impress a potential client, colleague, or investor. No longer will I conform in this manner to a way of life that I don’t see fit for myself. No longer will I support a way of being that I don’t see as necessary.
I realize that I probably mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. The human species is just a speck of dust on the earth’s timeline. What’s more, the earth is just a speck of dust in what we can see of an infinite space and time. Each one of our existences is just as minuscule as a drop of water in the ocean.
In my 26th year I…
Officially changed my life title to Adventurer and founded Greenfield Adventures with the mission to entertain, educate, inspire, and give back through adventures and traveling.

Life is hard.
It’s hard for the wealthy and the poor.
It’s hard for the young and the old.
It’s hard for the country folk and the urban dwellers.
It’s hard for the healthy and the terminally ill.
It’s hard for the simple livers and the livers of complex lives.
Life is hard for all of us.
I have not missed you over the last 4 months because I’ve been living in the present. I haven’t yearned for you because I’ve been swimming in beautiful rivers and lakes all over the United States. I haven’t thought too much about you because I’ve been out riding my bike all over the country. I haven’t needed you because I am at home anywhere and everywhere I go. I’ve been too busy waking the United States of America up to think about you.
Food (2 of 12)
4,700 miles of riding over 104 days eating food from the earth (plus a whole bunch from the dumpster).
The goal: To cross the USA by bicycle while keeping my carbon footprint from food consumption to an extreme minimum.
We live in an interesting time, an exciting time. We live in an era where we just may witness the survival or the extinction of the human race. We are destroying the natural world much faster than it can heal itself. We are aware of our destruction, but most humans are just too lazy to do what needs to be done. Most of us are too lazy to think past our own little lives. Billions of humans deny or completely avoid the fact that they are destroying the environment. Maybe that’s a way of self protection, a way to feel okay about their lives. Maybe it’s feeling helpless and hopeless, like their actions don’t count.
Start living beyond yourself. Start living a life of health and happiness for the earth, your community, humankind, and you.
United States of America, there was a time when it could be all about us. There was a time when we didn’t have to worry about what was going on in the other countries around the world. That time is over. That time is long gone. The reason? We have created so many problems around the world in so many countries that we have a responsibility to fix those problems.
