A beautiful walk

Today was a beautiful day to walk. I can’t believe the weather I have come across this entire journey. Today was in the mid 90’s. I made it to Kingston, TN, 13 miles today.

I stopped at Me Me’s Cafe and had breakfast. I met Missy and Donna. They are very sweet and thoughtful women. The food is excellent. I had eggs, bacon and a tenderloin. They took care of my breakfast. So awesome.

The roadway was so nice. Shoulders were wide and safe. A large portion of the walk there was road construction and gave me a whole lane to use.

I passed over Clinch River several times. It is a large body of water. Very nice scenery.

Tomorrow I am off to Lenoir City.

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.
