Taking a break in Edmond, OK

I woke up to rain this morning. I made it to Walmart to get some insoles for my shoes to help me for today.

I had a peaceful walk into Oklahoma City. I took the long way so I could observe Lake Overholser.

I made it to the post office and picked up my shoes. Unfortunately one package is lost. It is a special package with more info to follow.

I am now in Edmond, OK with Trudy Miller Penning and husband Michael. Trudy and I graduated from High School in 1981. I will be staying here through Monday. I am so lucky to be here with them. Trudy and Michael made an incredible dinner of salad, chicken and shrimp. It was so awesome to have a home cooked meal.

Trudy and Michael took me to the Patriarch Craft Beer House and Lawn. It had nearly 50 beers on tap, live music and cornhole. What a great way to end the day.

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.
