Best pies

I am spending my third night in Adrian, TX. I don’t know if it is because of the hospitality, the pies or just giving my body a little break.

Adrian, TX is the midway point on Route 66.

I am having a blast at the Fabulous 40 Motel. Ramona and her family have been more that gracious.

I have had three pieces of pie at the Midway Cafe; apple, coconut and Elvis (chocolate, banana and peanut butter). Carrie, one of the owners has also been very gracious. I had the Route 66 hamburger today. It was huge and tasty.

I am taking off in the morning on my way to Amarillo.

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.
