In Albuquerque

I had a very nice walk into Albuquerque today. I walked over the Rio Grande. It was a very fast current.

I have a confession that for the past couple of weeks, I have been listening to the song, “Point me in the direction of Albuquerque”, by the Partridge Family. And yes some of their other songs.

So far I have earned $920.61 on the Sweatcoin App. Fun App to earn money as you walk to buy items on their web page.

I was talking on the phone with my dad when a family drove up very slow next to me and handed me a $1.00 bill out the window. As soon as I said “God bless”, they drove off.

The same thing happened when I was talking to Jim Hosang. A lady was stopped at a traffic light and called me over. She handed me $2.00. The light turned green and she drove off. I now have $78.00 for the widow and orphan fund.

I walked through Old Town Albuquerque. What a cute town. Some of the homes around the area were gorgeous.

I met up with Sandra tonight. She was the nice lady I met in Amboy that gave me grapes and offered to let me stay in her yard. Sandra took me to dinner with Sister Kateri. We went to the Range Cafe. We were just talking and they had to let us know that they are closed. The manager came over and gave me two muffins and told me to have a safe journey. Sister Kateri told her what I was doing.

I have to go to REI tomorrow and get some supplies. I am going to stay in Albuquerque until July 5th.

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.
