What a great project

Last night was awesome. The Mart that allowed me to sleep on their property also had a barn that they sold hay. In the middle of the night I was woken up by a beautiful white barn owl. It was so awesome to hear the screech and see it fly right above me. Then the coyotes started howling. They must have be 50 yards away. It was so cool to hear.

This morning, Ira sent me a picture. The picture is a project that he and Cathy are working on with their grandchildren, Evan and Haylee. As you can see in the picture, they are tracking my progress and putting a pin in where I stay the night. How awesome to see that.

I made my 20 miles and walked through some beautiful country. This picture is when I was entering the Nelson Valley. It started raining and I got a hotel at the Grand Canyon Cavern Inn.

Off to Seligman tomorrow.

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.
