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.

Awesome Weekend in Edmond, OK


Ok, it is Monday morning and I am heading out from Edmond, OK. I had an incredible weekend with Trudy and Mike. They were gracious hosts that showed me all around Oklahoma. Definitely another place to consider relocating to.

We visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. This was a beautifully done to honor the victims and show the the investigation and conviction of the suspects.

Oklahoma City and Edmond have some beautiful bronze sculptures throughout the cities. They seem like they are on every corner.

I saw Santa Monica Pier’s Old Ferris Wheel that was relocated here.

I went to the Henderson Hill’s Baptist Church with Trudy and Mike. It was a beautiful service, great message and music and had a baptism.

Throughout the weekend we ate at some fun and tasty restaurants. Food is really good here.

On Sunday night, Trudy and Mike had a BBQ and had several friends come over. Really nice, gracious and kind people. One of the friends is a local Captain for Edmond PD. We exchanged patches and challenge coins. It was a great evening with awesome food, especially the desserts.

I am heading toward Warwick, OK today. I hope to be in Tulsa by Friday.

Sad to go as I really enjoyed my stay.

On one note, I finally had a scale to weigh myself. I have lost 25 pounds. I was hoping more, but halfway to my goal at the halfway point of my trip.
