That’s a real good question and in many ways I would say nothing. That being said if there is a away to connect the two dreams and goals I will figure out how along the way.
I guess the bike ride is just something I need to do personally or forever live with the regret of never doing the ride. That being said; I guess I hope that I can incorporate the required education needed to be successful with my passion projects along my ride. What I mean is that truthfully I have no experience or education to pursue my passion for planting trees and rejuvenation of habitat in forests, rain forests and jungle.
I have an idea of meeting and talking to people about tree planting and habitat restoration along my ride in particularly third world countries but even here at home in Canada. I have an idea of volunteering for certain organizations that are involved with tree planting in the different countries that I plan on pedaling through. Getting hands on experience in the dirt and developing an education based on real life experiences.
The truth of the matter is that I am not an educated person and know very little about how to go about creating this future I want to create for myself. But I am very determined and I guess I also hope that the determination and accomplishment of the bike ride will go a ways to help create a level of credibility that will help me network with the right people along the way to help see my goals and dreams of reforestation and habitat rejuvenation a reality.
