I don’t like walking on the I-40

I slept great last night. I got up early and started my walk on the freeway. Today was not a fun day. Walking on the freeway sucks. The scenery was beautiful, but trucks were a little too close for comfort. I was excited when I got to mile 21. On my map there was a frontage road, but it wasn’t accessible from the freeway. However, when I got there, there was a hole in the fence that allowed me access. I was able to have a relaxing walk my last three miles. When I crested a hill I saw an oasis, it was the Route 66 Casino and Hotel. After 24 miles I just to get a room, shower and sleep.

Tomorrow on to Albuquerque.

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.
