 What I've Learned as a Female Biker

I've learned to respect my body and take up the space that is rightfully mine.
I've Learned about myself, my fears, my dreams.
I've learned societal norms are not always right and definitely not for me.
I've learned independence and found my freedom.
I've learned of the discrimination of women riders by men, women and corporations.
I've learned I am not less of a woman because I ride.
I feel like a woman because I ride.

What is BlueRoad?

 Living in a Little Guy Rascal trailer which can be pulled by my 2007 Harley FLHT.

Summary:

As I have traveled all over the United States I have been compelled to find ways to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable. 

How sustainable can someone be in a tiny traveling home? 
  • I have a small garden I try to grow green leafy veggies.
  • I have a chicken who will hopefully, when old enough, lay eggs. 
  • All of my electrical needs are satisfied with solar energy. 
  • Together we use about a gallon of water a day.
  • I camp mainly in free Campsites including BLM, Forest lands and some city parks.
  • I am researching and aspiring to rebuild my motorcycle into an electric motorcycle by the end of 2018 to be solar charged via solar panels on the teardrop trailer.
  • I am researching the best way to efficiently collect and purify water that is accumulated via rain on the teardrop trailer and also could be used to filter other water sources and stored in a 5 gallon tank on the teardrop trailer.
Why is this important to me?
  • We have a government who is not doing their part in protecting the environment.
  • When I look at the world I see a need for big business because we do not know how to meet our basic needs without them.
  • Through my travels I have seen the way people waste resources because of under education on what using non renewable resources means to the environment and our future.
What do I hope to accomplish?
  • Inspire people to make a difference
  • Show the world how one can be sustainable with little space and little money.
  • Empower the people to take control of their environment and show them they can protect the environment for future generations.
  • Gaining acceptance for those who choose or need to live differently.
