Elk City, Oklahoma

Totally made a mistake today. I didn’t realize it was Sunday. I was talking to a friend and they asked why I was walking. I didn’t even know what day it was.

I made it 19 miles to Elk City. I decided to call it a day.

The walk was along frontage roads and business 40. The clouds in the sky were amazing. Puffy white marshmallows.

There were some beautiful areas on the walk. There was a nice iron bridge over a creek.

I stopped at the National Route 66 Museum. What a treat. The museum is huge. It is like a little town with numerous buildings. I met Kacy in one of the display locations. She was great and gave me a lot of insight on the museum, the town of Elk City and a map with information on the towns I am coming to. The museum has an incredible presentation to local rodeo members.

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.
