Made it into Santa Fe.

We all three got up this morning and finished the last leg into Santa Fe. It was actually 8 miles to finish. Once we made it to Santa Fe I went to the Post Office to pick up some care packages. One was from Maury Sumlin. All I can say it was awesome. From bean pies to headphones. Everything I needed.

The next one was from my dad and Geneva. It was some good canned foods, protein bars and beard supplies. More stuff I needed.

After getting cleaned up we went and saw the movie, “Yesterday” and went to a karaoke bar. Santa Fe is a fun town.

Tomorrow Dusty and Annette leave and my cousin, Mike Trisler is coming in from Colorado. I am going to spend the day with him and his family.

I start back up on Wednesday on my way to Amarillo, Texas.

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.
