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.

Bottle Tree Ranch


On the way to Barstow, I stopped at Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch. Several Australian tourist were curious about my rig and spent about 1/2 hour asking questions about my trip, gear and purpose. One gentleman was really into talking about the problems he is seeing in his country with intolerance of beliefs. It was a great conversation. The tree farm was pretty cool.
