A Gift from Fred

The lost package has been found and redelivered. Fred Rutan, another old partner from Santa Monica Police Department owns a silk screen printing shop and made some shirts for me. These are awesome as people will know what I am doing out on the streets. Fred sent me two short sleeve wick away shirts, two short sleeve shirts, two long sleeve shirts, a hooded sweatshirt and a safety jacket. The symbol on the front of the shirt is the trident for the Santa Monica Police Officers’ Association. I am so set for clothing now.

Thank you Fred and your son Carter, who designed the shirt. These are awesome.

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.
