Out the Door

My Good Neighbor Lorenzo Haarr
Who found me on the road the first day out.

I talked over the fence with my neighbor Loren a few days ago about trying to "let the Walk happen." Like "letting Life happen," it is not necessarily an easy thing to do.

Letting the Walk start at Its time and have Its route are lessons and opportunities I have been dealing with.

How often do we try to make Life suit our purposes rather than fit ourselves to Life's flow?

I have asked myself more than a few times, "Are you just making up this Walk idea?" The answer has been "No." But still, I wonder.

So then, how do I make my footsteps fit the best pattern? WHOSE ever pattern it is.

To make the best of this Adventure, Passage, Opportunity. During this brief Moment in a Quick Life on a Small Planet in a Big Universe.

I would be happy to hear your thoughts on the subject.


A photo of some friends I pass daily on Highway 12 as I gear up for the Walk is shown below. I will be starting out on 191 South heading to Big Timber on 1 Sep.

Ready for the Road

Hello Friends and Neighbors.

This blog is intended to create a running narrative for those interested in keeping tabs on me as I walk down the highway carrying my flag from Montana to California.

For the moment, the blog might be called "Harlo to Reno."

The map shows the intended route which I will follow. If the walk is like the last, the itinerary is sure to change. I have already mentally changed one of the passages, but this map gives the general intention.

I don't know how often I will be able to check in, hopefully once a week, nor how well I will be able to respond to visitors.

You may also wish to check out other developments at which will be functioning before I depart Montana around 1 Sep.

Be Good to Yourself and Every One Else.

PS I want to give belated but special thanks to Audrey Snow and Duane Kolman who did so much to "keep an eye on me" and help in many little ways to make the beginning, middle and end of the trip happen. Love and Hugs to Audie and Du.
