Winona, AZ

I arrived in Winona, AZ. Just about 18 miles today. Most of those miles were on the I-40. I don’t like walking on the freeway. It is not fun. You can’t enjoy the scenery.

I stopped for breakfast at the Crown Railroad Cafe. It was pretty cute as there was a train going around the restaurant. Food was pretty good.

As I walked on the I-40, I was stopped by an Arizona State Trooper. He was pretty cool. He advised me to be careful walking on the freeway (it is against the law). He put my info out to other troopers that I was walking. We talked about my purpose and I gave him a challenge coin. He was very appreciative.

I am sleeping close to a gas station behind some Tuff Sheds for sale. The goal is to get up early and start walking. Not that I am going to make it, but Winslow is 43 miles.

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.
