Suddenly, this has become very real

Gentle Reader, the night before last I was notified that I would not be doing this walk with a friend as he is having a back problem. As I have put this adventure off for a long time, I am anxious to get started. I was able to change my flightt reservations and I am now only 3 days away from departing my retired life of leisure.  So many thought running through my head. The one constant is that I can do it. I have read so much about others who have done this without a lick of preparation that it gives me confidence.

I harken back on life and words I spoke upon my retirement. I am humbled by my good fortune. I have “backed into” life from the beginning. From my breach birth to my last minute acceptance to West Pointt, to so many things. I must believe that this walk is possible. My desire to walk the Camino must eminate from somewhere and it is my responsibility to follow that.

Blogs are a strange thing. My intentions are to blog so that you can keep track of my progress but I can not resist the sharing of thoughts and observations along the way.

I must not accelerate my packing.

    My only hope is that you adjust your pace if desired. You may enjoy it so much that you want to walk slower, or stay an extra day somewhere 🙂 No pressure. I’ll live vicariously through you for now and hope to follow your example someday.
