Back to Ludlow

So last night I am thinking about how I get back to Ludlow. I was not looking forward to hitchhiking again. I took a chance to see if I could locate Chancy and see if he was going back. I located the shop he mentioned he worked at. I called around 7:00 pm and someone answered the phone. I asked if Chancy was there. The person said, “No” and the he was his boss.

I explained why I was calling. The boss, Charlie said he would arrange for someone to pick me up, just call back in the morning.

I did and Charlie arranges for Al to come pick me up. I am here in Ludlow thanks to the help of Charlie and Al.

I am on my way to Needles. I will hopefully be there on Tuesday. I am looking forward walking through the desert.

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.
