Back on Track

Today was back on track. Thanks for the messages. Positivity the rest of the way. I picked a route that provided the widest shoulder. It worked out very well. I made it 29 miles to Johnson City with no problems.

It is amazing the clouds that are in the sky. I wish we had these in California.

Thanks for the messages on what this is about. I had a great prayer session that resulted in a temporary emotional breakdown. Funny after it was done, everything was great. People smiled as I waved. Some were actually very exuberant. I walked with a huge smile today. I actually listened to Trans Siberian Orchestra Christmas music.

I am taking a day off tomorrow and start back up on Saturday. I have a 37 mile hike going over the smokies. I will make it into North Carolina at the end of the day.

For the past week and a half, I have been putting CBD Balm that I purchased at Okie High Hopes on my feet every morning. I have not had any new blisters, have not used blister pads and the reoccurring blisters have healed. My feet feel great.

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.
