Profile: Although at times, my wanderlust has waned, I have always enjoyed travel and adventure. Knowing that I'll never make enough money to jet-set, I have always considered riding off on a cross country bike trip. Soon after meeting Jessica, it became more than a consideration. I found a 2005 Bianchi Volpe in great condition on craigslist.com and quickly fell in love with its sea green frame and Brooks saddle. Once we pedal off into the sunset, my mission is to become self-sustaining through survival skills, photography and learning to see the world on a budget. I see myself settling into a permaculture lifestyle upon return and hope to grow enough food to subsist off the grid.
