Thursday morning, May 30th, 2013. #ENDALZ

Heading west about 20 miles. Good weather predicted.


Thanks Bobbie. Sometimes one place is just as safe as any other place, in a storm.



Love this. Thanks Susan….


Paul Staso – advisor

Paul Ran the Mojave Desert with no support.

I do not know of anyone that has done the many things Paul has done.

The route I am taking can be dangerous and IS extreme !!

He will be beside me in spirit. He will help me with the planning that this route will force upon me.

I would not attempt this route without the knowledge that Paul Staso has accumulated during many years of doing extreme things, that most would not ever consider.

I appreciate my friend Paul.

Paul told me he wants to see me in Monterey, California.

Status of this Awesome Journey #ENDALZ

The total miles of the Journey Across the land is 3,002 miles.

We have completed 1,569 miles of the trip.

We have 1,433 miles left to Monterey, California.

We are over 1/2 way done !!

Interstate 40 #ENDALZ

We have contacted the state of New Mexico. We have asked for permission for Wilson and I to Run on Interstate 40.

The initial contact sounded very hopeful.

We will be contacting the state of Arizona tomorrow.

Route Change #ENDALZ

We are making a route change that will take effect upon leaving Amarillo, Texas. The changes are as follows:

Amarillo, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Albuquerque, New Mexico to Flagstaff Arizona.

Flagstaff, Arizona to Bullhead City, Arizona.

Bullhead City, Arizona to Bakersfield, California.

Bakersfield, California to Monterey, California.

Before beginning each section, we will sit and plan each section. This planning will be very important, as this is serious terrain in extremely hot weather.

Not that it has not been hard or dangerous up to this point, but now the real adventure begins.

Extreme heat, long distances between communities, the bigger need for water, sparce population, among other things are some of the problems that this new route will present

The reasons for the change are personal. This is what I am supposed to be doing.

The number One priority is for Jack (me) to get to Monterey, California alive and healthy enough to do other things after the Across the Land Journey is finished.

I need your help. I need you to look at the first section, Amarillo, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am asking you to let me know of anyone you know that lives in this area and have them get in touch with me, to see if they can help me get from Amarillo, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Thank You….

One Step at a Time, Heading West !!
