QUEST: July 9


Today I had another fairly short walk (8.3 miles), but it was almost all uphill.  I’m grateful for another night in a climate-controlled motel room tonight.

My average walking day will be a bit shy of 12 miles, so starting back up after my resting weekend with two “shorties” is also a part of my route for which I’m grateful.

Speaking of my route, if you’re wondering what exactly it is, you’ll just have to keep wondering.  This material is public, so I can’t assume everyone who reads it will be a friend. 


I know a “non-friend” who reads through these posts might be able to figure it out, but I just want to make it a little less easy to work out how to find me.

If you’re a friend, though, you probably know Kathryn’s phone number, and you could call her and she’ll tell you all about it.  And I’ll tell everyone all about it when I get home in late August.

I’ve promised myself (and my Constant Companion) that I won’t look at any screens during the entire duration of the Quest.  No distractions.  So I’m not taking my “smart phone” out of the bag unless I have to “cry uncle” and give up on the walk before I reach the monastery.

Hopefully, that won’t happen.

So, to “follow along,” I hope you’ll use your imagination for the time being, and picture yourself walking alongside me and The Lord.  And I can’t wait to read the comments you’ll make; I hope they’ll be full of insights YOU gained from following along.

(Or, “leading along,” I guess.  I can’t assume you would imagine yourself in the back of the line!  If you’re on an imaginary Quest of your own, you’ll be right up front.)

Thanks for following my Quest.  If you’d like to respond, please post a comment here, or  send an email to  Either way, I look forward to reading your views when I return to my screen in late August.
