Knoxville. Looks like a fun town.

Today was a great day. The walk was very nice. A majority of the walk had sidewalks and wide shoulders.

I really liked the town of Farragut. It was a charming town that felt like a community. There were some neat fruit stands and a farmers market. The town was very clean and appeared to be well thought out. Another place to look at in the future.

As I walked into Knoxville, there were some majestic homes and was rich in civil war information. I can’t wait to spend some time looking around town.

The town was buzzing with tailgating everywhere. I haven’t seen this much orange since I was in a pumpkin patch. It was so fun to see. Makes me wish I went to a large school in the South.

An old friend from high school, Adam Agard (we graduated in the same year)had contacted me and said he and his family were going to be in Knoxville this weekend. We met tonight and they took me out to an incredible Italian restaurant. The food was very good. It was great to meet his wife Cyndi and two sons, Adam Jr and Andrew. We are planning to sight see tomorrow.

What a great day. Blessed.

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.
