In Albuquerque

I had a great couple of days in Albuquerque. I was able to walk around town, shopped at REI and had dinner at Tomasito’s.

Today Dustin Trisler and Annette Margaret Ornelas arrived in Albuquerque and are going to walk with me to Santa Fe. This will be awesome as we will get to see Dusty’s new apartment in Santa Fe.

We were able to enjoy fireworks at the Balloon Fiesta Park tonight.

We leave early tomorrow to head to Santa Fe. Goal is 69 miles in three days.

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.
