I have recently retired after 30 years in law enforcement and a few years in the private sector. I have always enjoyed walking form place to place. One of my favorite assignments was working overtime in our tourist area. It was a blast to walk around for about 7 hours throughout the Downtown area.
In 2016, I read a book, "Wild at Heart" by John Eldredge. In November of 2016, I decided to do my "walkabout" with God from Santa Cruz to Los Angeles. I had a blast walking along the Pacific Coast. It was a beautiful experience. I learned so many things on this walk. The main lesson was God was talking to me, I just was not listening. He was there with me on my walk, I just was not realizing the signs.
I have always been intrigued about walking the PCT, AFT, the Continental Divide and Appalachian Trial. The one trip that stuck out with me was walking across the United States.
I have decided that beginning May 1, 2019, I will start my walk from Santa Monica and head to Nashville, Tennessee. From Nashville, I will walk to Virginia Beach, Virginia.
I have no time goals, but hope to finish in about seven months.
I am dedicating this walk to two very important entities; God and Cops.
I hope to see you along my adventure.
