An Inspiring Green Dream

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

 Henry David Thoreau


American author, poet and naturalist, Henry David Thoreau, is best known for his book Walden, a reflection and fascination within his natural surroundings.  I have come in contact with a modern day Thoreau, 29-year-old Nathan Winters.

Nathan Winters, avid traveler/explorer and nature devotee, from Lancaster, PA, has decided to live the life he has imagined.  As well as being an entrepreneur and product manager in the world of technology, his longtime goal and dream has been to travel across America.  Nathan has chosen to do it via bike .  He will unite his love of nature with his love of exploration hoping to draw attention to support the conservation of land and nature. 

Nathan has developed the site, Follow Nathan where visitors can actually followhis progress on a map; be able to read about his journey via blog; and be able to read a Daily Green Tip. Nathan will conduct video interviews with locals along his sojourn. You will be able to follow his up to minute progress via Twitter, Facebook, Youtube.

Although he has no concrete route, his vision is to begin in Maine and ride through to Washington state.

Nathan’s agenda is clear: preserve nature.  Not only does he hope his ride will bring awareness to this important cause, donations can be made to help support his ride and provisions as well as money going towards “the organizations that are devoted to help preserve land and nature.” For every $10 in donations to, he will help plant 10 trees which helps protect the environment with the help of one of his partners, Trees For the Future Also, Nathan will plant 5 trees with every purchase of one of his cool products: messenger bags coffee mugs and a variety of cool t-shirts for both men and women, (all adorned with the Follow Nathan logo).  is not only an impressive site, but an inspiring dream that he is making come true.  Pedal on, Nathan Winters!
