Sightseeing in Knoxville.

Today was another good day. I was able to spend a good portion of the day with Adam Agard and his family. We drove around Knoxville and the surrounding area. Sightseeing and trying to get lost is a lot of fun in a car with fun people. It sure is a beautiful town.

After driving around we went to lunch in the Market Square. I was treated to a really good Mexican restaurant, Soccer Taco.

It sure was a treat to spend time with Adam, Cyndi, Adam Jr and Andrew. What an incredible family. I can’t wait to drive through Georgia and see their place.

I spent a lot of time going through my cart to see what I can dispose of to lighten my load. I have identified about 25 pounds that I will be mailing back to California.

I walked around this evening and found a restaurant with chicken and waffles. After dinner I found an alley that highlights some artwork. Good food and fun sights.

Leaving for Dandridge tomorrow. It is supposed to rain tomorrow. Sure enjoyed my time in Knoxville.

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.
