Almost 40

It cooled down to 100 degrees at 7:30 p.m. so I started my walk. I made it to my location after a 38 mile walk today. Furthest day so far. It was pretty awesome as it started raining and a lightning storm along the walk. It was still so warm I didn’t even have my rain jacket on.

I am at Russell’s Truck Stop adjacent to the Texas border. Tomorrow my fourth State and new time zone.

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.
