Drenched by rain

I had an exhilarating 18 mile hike today. I woke up this morning in Dusty’s apartment. He hasn’t moved in yet and there is no furniture. It was like a camp out inside. He actually doesn’t move in until mid August.

I took the train to my ending spot yesterday and walked to Kewa Pueblo. It was mostly a dirt road with beautiful views, cows and thunderstorms. It rained quite a bit and I was drenched.

I made it to the train station about 1.5 hours early and was able to watch the lightning light up the horizon. It was simple awesome to watch. Only problem is that it got cold and it is getting me a little sick.

I am meeting Dusty and Annette at Tomasita’s. I am at the bar having a cup of coffee.

Tomorrow I am going to attempt to walk La Bajada and work my way to Santa Fe.

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.
