Lonesome Road

Delvin told me that when I left Victorville there would be no more stop lights until I got to Barstow. I was looking forward to the open stretches. Boy was I not disappointed. It was so awesome out on the road. I enjoyed the quiet so much that I didn’t even listen to music or Podcast. There were stretches where I didn’t see a car for awhile. I stopped on. The side of the road and had leftovers from the night before.

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.
