Family in for a walk

It was an early and fun day. We left at 6:00 a.m. and started walking to Algodones. It was a 22 mile walk. Since we walk at different paces, we made a plan to meet at Bernalillo for lunch.

The walk was somewhat unpopulated and not many people outside. Along the way I saw two coyotes peaking over the railroad tracks watching me. I happened upon a small (I mean very small) brush fire at the entrance to a residence. I called 911 and the fire department came out and put out the fire.

After lunch, we went over to a park and took a nap. After the nap we walked to Algodones. What a cute town with pretty houses

We decided that the next few days look like some tough and fun hiking in the mountains, we took the train to Dusty’s apartment in Santa Fe. It was two-fold to do this. We all got to see the apartment that he will live in as he goes to school here. We were also able to drop of supplies to have a lighter load for tomorrow.

This will be the first time I am walking without my cart. I am excited as I will be able to take the difficult dirt trails and not go onto the highway.

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.
