What a day

What a day. Dusty and Annette went back to Los Angeles today and my cousin came into town.

Today I had to run some errands and do laundry. After I finished my laundry I was walking to meet my cousin. On the way, a red Prius was pulling out of a parking lot. I watched as it made a u-turn and drove back towards me. The passenger rolled down the window and handed me two-five dollar bills. This brings the total for the widow and orphans fund to $88.00.

I met my cousin, his wife Patty, my aunt Judy and her significant other Grant at the Thunderbird Bar. It is an awesome visit as we went out to dinner at the Shed and Mike set me up for the night at the hotel. What a hotel, The St. Francis. A converted monastery into a hotel.

After breakfast I am heading out toward Amarillo.

What a 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.
