Now, I make new plans! As of right now, those are to leave from the east coast in March and hike west on the American Discovery Trail. This route will give me more miles in the end but will get me off the road some and on trails. As far as the purpose, it remains the same! To learn, live, and love!
My relationship with my wife has grown and is better then it was 6 months ago. That time has been filled with very emotional days and weeks. I am so happy to say that we are still husband and wife! We still have a long way to go, but what couple doesn't? She supports me no matter what! She knows that this adventure has nothing to do with our relationship and everything to do with my relationship with mankind and myself. I can't imagine any person in this world that would go through what we have been through and to still be there supporting me unconditionally. The fact is, is that i have lost family and friends through this and she is still there! She is truly one of a kind!
Thank you, to all of you who show your support! I appreciate it more than I could ever tell you!

There is no doubt that this last year has been the darkest for me. I have learned this little lesson of late, that there's really only one person you can count on. I have decided that im not going to let people in anymore, it hurts to much when you need them and they're not there.
On another note, I have decided that I will wait until spring to start my journey again. I am going to pour all my energy into being a positive person and helping people in need; I truly think that is where I excel. I am going to keep hiking and walking for myself and others. It won't be everyday or across the country at this point, but I will keep walking. Again, I thank all of you for the support you have given and hope you continue to follow me on my journey and help spread the word by sharing and liking my page. I will continue to post inspirational and thought provoking items on my page and updates about my walks. If you take anything away from page, I hope that it is the gift of giving! When you give, give freely! Don't expect anything in return, other than the pure joy it brings to whoever you are giving to!

So I go back to the doctor Tuesday to have a technician fit and make me an orthotic for my right foot. I want to thank Dr. Kaylor for the help with the foot and wish him a happy retirement. We will see how the foot feels with the insert and go from there. I am worried now that getting such a late start in the year is going to be very unpleasant when I get further west through the Rockies and Nevada. Going to go over the map again today and see if I can make it through Nevada by the end of October. If not, I will just give it another go in the spring as I don't really want to spend winter nights in the mountains or deal with the snow.
