Freestyle Living: Biking Across America

Posted by on Jul 18, 2016 in Adventure, Freestyle Living, Live Your True Nature | 1 comment

What did you do the summer after you graduated from high school? There are so many ways to live and choices to make. I’m all about living free and true given what I chose after high school to how I live now. I’m meeting more and more people who are making life leaps and bucking any norms to live freely in ways that work for them. Many more people are desiring big life changes and finding inspiration in others’ adventures as they ponder some of their own, so I’ve decided to share some inspiring adventures in what I’m calling Freestyle Living! In my first Freestyle Living post, I am honored to highlight recent Vermont Waldorf High School graduates Aidan Powell and Clara Slesar biking across America. They wanted to combine their sense of adventure and love of the land by raising money for the Vermont Land Trust. They started in Maine and a mere 31 days later, they are in South Dakota. They seem to have put in quite a few hundred mile days–impressive with fully loaded paniers on their bikes! I’m enjoying following their daily updates. Here’s today’s post of day 31, prickly surprises in South Dakota from their website. Check it out! I’d love to hear of other tales of Freestyle Living. Please share yours or those you know of with me in the comments below or the contact page.
