About Wild Steve

Steve Greene is a naturalist, free thinker, and seeker of truth. He pursues absolute truth in all things, modifying his existence as supported by legitimate evidence. His ideological foundation rests on the respect of life, as he follows a path of health, serenity, and maximum functional longevity. He has authored eleven books, and is a noted authority on Death Valley National Park, human powered recumbent tricycle touring, health and fitness, and professional law enforcement. Steve has not owned a petroleum powered automobile since 2008, as part of his environmental preservation paradigm. He thrives on a whole food plant-based diet, exercises regularly (bodybuilding, hiking, cycling), and enjoys exploring the wilderness, beyond the bounds of human dominance. Harmony with nature tops his priorities.

  1. Interesting, but it looks dangerous to me. I think I would want some protection between me and the various equipment back there. Anyway, I don’t think it will ever catch on. I am sure the builder knows this. He is just into “antiques” so to speak. It is interesting however. ;)

  2. I said antiques, but “nostalgia” would be a better word to use.

    Brilliant, a steam powered trike that not only stops you ‘going off the rails’ but also lets you use the hot water to make a brew when it’s time for a break.

    Neato, Steve, what will your new trike be?

  5. Jerry Forster says:

    Steam power is great. Beats the Bean Powered Trike I now have.

  6. Bill Crawford says:

    I am always jealous of those who have their lives ” together” enough to be as creative as this gentleman. This is art! Not meant to be practical or even safe. BRAVO!
