Onto Amarillo

I just realized that yesterday it has been two months on the road. Time is flying.

I had a great breakfast with Mike, Patty, Aunt Judy and Grant. Mike and Patty contributed to the SMPOA Widow and Orphans Fund. I am up to $188.00. It was fantastic to see them in Santa Fe.

After breakfast I had two more packages delivered; one from my niece Danielle - more electrolytes. Thank you. And my third pair of shoes. Getting close to a 1,000 miles.

As I was leaving the Post Office, Delphine handed me some lovely sugar cookies. They were very tasty and didn’t last long.

Walking today was awesome as I was wearing the bone conduction headphones that Maury got me. It was nice as I could hear both the music and traffic.

I walked 15 miles today and am camping at the Rancheros de Santa Fe. Tomorrow is a 19 mile trek on a dirt road to Rowe, NM.

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.
