As I “celebrate my first month on THE WALK I am pondering the intense feeling I am having concerning the next leg. 300 miles from Indio, CA to Mesa, AZ. I am scared beyond belief! It is going to be between 20-30 nights in the desert, pretty much alone and walking along the side of Interstate 10 in order to have cell phone contact and water available every other day. I will be carrying 2 gallons of water and adding another 10 lbs to my pack. There are a few places along the way that I will be able to buy more food but, it will not be Trader Joes or Whole Foods quality. I have made the choice that, some of my future friends DRIVE CARS so, I may accept a ride or two but, only if I ABSOLUTELY feel that I have to. I knew this was part of the journey I “signed on” for but, It is happening about 3 months earlier than I planned. I NEED EVERYONE who reads this to send me positive energy, love and for those who practice it, prayer.
On to more fun things.
I am staying today with Marta, a lovely and very kind woman, in Banning. Her house is a magical place full of interesting and wonderful little things that are eclectic and she is.
(I wish I could share them but, for some reason the photos I take on my phone are not transferring to my iPad. I know they are supposed to and as far as I can tell I have everything set up right but, NOPE, no updated photo album. I am going to stop at the APPLE Store in Palm Springs to ask about this issue and then I will have more photos to share)
Thats about all I have for today. Off to laundry, video uploads and more planning “the crossing”.
Just added these as an “Update” from my phone. See how cool this home is? I told you so. 😄
Oh, I just remembered that I wanted to add these links to ALL my internet “places” so you can visit me in a variety of forums.
