Day 20

Today was a day of rest, and I needed it. I drank liquids, ate, and napped. Repeat. Repeat again. I also did laundry, dipped in the cold pool, and pondered my self-inflicted circumstances. After posting my decision, I received nothing but support from my communities of friends, family, and walkers. Certainly I’m disappointed; but I […]

Day 21

Recap: A few angels intervene, and… Poof!  I’m on the road again. After a takeout breakfast from Carl’s Jr., I left Motel 6 and resumed my walk on Historic Route 66 at 7:30 am. The great irony is that it was cold: mid-to high-40°s. I was wearing an extra shirt and gloves. Walking through Kingman, I thought it […]

Day 22

It’s Day 22, but other than that the date and the day of the week have little meaning to me at this point. Theoretically, I’m 10% of the way through my journey. Is that feasible? Mathematically, maybe. (Note: I was closer to 13% of the way, but could not know this at the time.) It […]

Day 23

When your fingers are freezing because your gloves are soaked, and your legs are wet because you didn’t take the time to put on your rain pants (even though you have them in your kart), and your shoes are wet because you’ve been walking up and down hills in the rain for a couple of […]

Day 24

After a good breakfast at the Lodge (oatmeal, bananas, raisins), I walked over to a nearby market and bought a a freshly-made tuna hoagie to go, plus a package of Kraft American cheese slices (something I normally would never eat). Ten minutes out of town I looked up to see a police officer standing on […]

Day 25

This morning, Officer Minoggio of the Hualapai Police (the Eyes of Arizona) stopped by once again to say hello. Frankly, I’m happy to be an object of his concern for my safety and wellbeing. He had a favor to ask me, and I complied. I waited a couple of hours and then called the Hualapai […]

Day 26

I had trouble falling asleep last night due to apprehension of today’s walk. (It might also have been the large root beer I had with dinner. Hey…I forgot about caffeine! Okay?) I was out the door at 5:40 am headed toward the end of town where Historic Route 66 would take me to Interstate 40. […]

Day 27

Today was uphill all day. Up, up, up, from Ash Fork to Williams, Arizona. Just a long, slow climb of almost 18 miles, much of it against a headwind. I started at 6:20 am and reached Motel 6 in Williams at 2 pm. Williams is a nice town, and I walked through some of it. […]

Day 28

What started as a no-brainer day, ended up as a scrambled-brain disappointment. Leaving the motel I made a quick stop at McDonalds for two egg McMuffins and cheese (no meat) on a Big Mac bun (“First time anyone’s ever ordered that, sir.”). Then back to I-40 for a few miles until an Arizona Highway Patrol […]

Day 29

I only walked 2 miles today. But I’m getting ahead of myself. After considering my options to get to Flagstaff today, I chose the more disappointing option—I got a ride. It’s one thing to push my kart all day up and down hills and over miles of dirt roads that call themselves “Historic Route 66.” […]
