A beauiful morning, a gentle climb matched with a walk along the shelf of a ridge line gave way to my longest mile day. 26 plus, a marathon of sorts that was a joy to walk. I ran into Michael Angelo who I hadn’t seen since I shared a peanut butter cup before the Smokies . Young Blood and I were talking about him just the other day. He discovered a fawn laying in a field at the end of the day
So innocent. So trusting. So knew to this world. Like a deer Panteth for water, so my soul pantith for thee.
I made my way down the mountain and was given a ride to the grocery store where I could resupply , have a cheese steak, get taxedermy work, do my laundry and get a shower. I love this country. I met Rueda Rue, Palamino, Dirty Bird, and Pilot who started a bon fire out of an old rim, plywood and a pallet.
Odd isn’t it that yesterday I wanted by myself and today after walking a marathon I find myself surrounded by people from all across the country with a shared purpose .
