Arrived in Mebane

I had a very pleasant walk into Mebane, NC. The road went through some residential and rural areas. Not too much traffic.

As I was leaving Burlington I heard a voice say, “Hey sir where are you walking to”? It was Lee and Jeremey who were sitting inside a truck. We talked about the journey, what they were doing and my blog. Lee’s truck caught my attention by the name of his business on the doors, Redneck Lawn Care. It was a nice talking with them.

I stoped in a farmers market and bought two fresh apples. Great tasting.

As I made it into Mebane, Lee and Jeremy showed up as they were on their way to Lowe’s to get plumbing supplies. Lee said he was hoping to see me and gave me $20. What a blessing. We all talked for about a half hour on a variety of topics. Lee gave me some great places to go eat when I get to Virginia Beach. I can’t wait to get there.

Tomorrow on my way to Durham. There is a large tropical storm coming in around 5:00 pm.

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.
