People are good

I stopped in for breakfast at Emma Jean’s. As I walked in, the chef, Brian was talking about people riding bicycles on Route 66. I mentioned that I was walking Route 66 to Oklahoma then to Virginia. A couple of the customers started asking questions about the trip. I ordered ham and eggs. Brian took care of me. As I went up to pay, the waitress said my bill was covered by one of the customers. I tanked her and she had the best reply, “That’s how we do things up here”. The day is great. Best ham and eggs I ever had.

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.
