At least 4 people pulled up beside me to see if I needed help. I think the heat worried them.
Spoke with a hitchhiker, that was going through some tough times. Trying to get to Denver.
3 dogs came out wanting to be petted.
I realized I am tired, but seem to always be able to push a little harder.
A lot of people want to help..
For practice, I have been looking as I Run for places to scramble to in case of lightning storms, hail and tornadoes.
I have also started practicing looking for good places to camp.
Starting to get better at it. I am learning a lot. It is a good feeling.
Also know I will need to carry about 10 – 15 lbs more water than in the past.
Things are changing. Lot of heat, less population, less places for shade and less places for water…..
When my phone died today, I instantly realized my GPS , and phone numbers were in the phone.
To someone watching me, they would probably have not seen anything. Inside, I was close to a panic.
This will make me stronger !!
19 miles today. 1,610 miles done in total.
1,392 miles left.
Very hot. 95 degrees. Not much wind.
Phone died for about 3 hours. AT & T called and congratulated me for what I was doing and then helped me.
I had called Amy from my motel room. She jumped on the problem quick and called AT & T. We finally had to do a hard reset. Lost some stuff.
We will be fine.
Heading to Erik, Oklahoma today. 17 miles.
Wilson is well.
Jack is well.
