Blisters doing better

It is Sunday night. My blisters are doing well. I am heading off tomorrow on my way to Virginia Beach. I will be leaving Route 66 as I head toward Virginia.

The rest of my feet have helped. I am trying the new socks Maury sent me. They feel a little weird, but I think they will be helpful, especially to my little toes.

It rained quite a bit this afternoon. No rain predicted for the next couple of days.

Trudy and Mike came out to Tulsa and took me to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. The food was very good. I also had my first sopapilla. It was pretty tasty. I really enjoyed my visit with them and look forward to coming back out to Edmond.

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.
