Read my journal as I pedal across the country

So a time has come in my life that I have decided to do a 180 degree change from most everything I have grown to know. I have suspended my university studies, quit my ten year career at UPS, and got bought out of my side business. All of this is in the name of exploring what it is that inspires me. The decision has certainly produced some anxiety, but I have not had a regret so far. After taking a month to tie up loose ends, make final preparations, and say my goodbyes, my journey has begun (for a navigable way to follow my video journal mouse over the menu titled “travel journal” on the left sidebar. From there you will be able to choose the time period of travel. Once you choose the time period you will reach an archive of all entries from that month. I will try to make the final monthly entry a summary, to hopefully help put the posts in some sort of context.)

The first leg of my adventure begins on March 3rd 2014 when I will be staying at Kashi Ashram for a month, doing a work-exchange on their organic Permaculture farm (don’t know what Permaculture is? You should definitely google it). After leaving Kashi I will head back to Orlando for a few days, say some final goodbyes to friends, mount my bicycle and hit the road. Once on the road, my intentions are to seek and find the most inspired, active, passionate, and knowledgeable dreamers and doers of sustainability in the country. I plan to learn, teach, inspire, and be inspired along the way. In my blog you will find interviews, how-to videos, inspirational stories, important news, and who could really say what else.

I really hope this site will be able to inspire and teach as I go through this adventure of experience and learning. Also, if you have any recommendations of places I must visit, or anything else, I encourage you to email me at

I love you all, and I look forward to what we may share with each other in the future.

  1. Bravo Matt, congratulations on living your dreams! Really enjoyed your writing on food forests…I was *just researching on the topic an hour ago as we’re about to begin a guerrilla community garden in my hood. Possibilities literally endless! I look forward to following your journey, and like I said bonfire-side, holla when you’re gettin near S Carolina!

  2. Matt I came across your blog by chance and parts of me thinks this is nuts, but a bigger part of me thinks this amazing! I really do look forward to reading your posts in the future. I’m living in TX so if you make your way threw here look me up. Safe travels, enjoy the Adventure.

      1. I live just outside of Dallas, if you ever need something or just want to talk give me a ring. I will be following your trek across so keep those entries coming.

        I was wondering looking at your bike, how much does everything weigh fully loaded. How much water do you plan on carrying?

        Anyway be safe
