Thank you!!!to the people whom were helpful, funny, and awesome in my journey to Lynchburg and back home again.  Bill, Shawn, the two little old ladies from Alpena, MI, Hope & her friend, whose name I can’t place, Travis, Nolan, Frazer, Mike, Josh, Matt, Debbie, Jessica, Denny, and Sheila.  Mucho love!

Today after awaking on Liberty Mountain top, I hiked  to a spot out of town and caught a ride with a gnarly-voiced man, named Denny whom had been screwed by his Dad and no luck with women or children.  “I guess, I picked you up, because I needed to vent.”  He played me a song by, Brent Dennen (check him out);  and it was one of those moments where a song just hit’s you, it was perfect for the occasion.  He gave me the CD.  

He let me out near Pamplin, VA on his way to a landscaping job, but also the middle of nowhere.  But for about a half an hour after getting a ride, I don’t seem to care if I don’t get a ride and I dig walking and feel great.  Luckily, as soon as I started to think, “hey if I don’t get picked up, I could be in the boonies” a woman named Sheila stopped to pick me up.

“I drove by once and you looked harmless enough.”

She had had a rod installed in her neck recently so had a neck brace on.  She knew some friends of mine. We went to Dollar General and got some paper plates, diapers, and little pink shoes for a baby shower she is attending.  But she dropped me off a block and a half from home.  It is a good feeling to walk up to my home.

Tommorrow, I decide what gear I need & what gear I want and I start writing some letters to some businesses to see if they would like to donate some gear.

Change your world,
