Today was clear and sunny – with a cold wind in the face.

There was a beautiful early morning sunrise. And today is the first time I saw cactus in New Mexico – a prickly pear.

Along the walk on I-40, there were many waves, salutes, and honks (mostly by truck drivers). Since I was able to catch some of the honks on video, they can be watched on our YouTube video for today.

After the walk, we met Debby, her daughter Trisha, and granddaughter Aubryna. They were very interested and supportive of the walk and said “Everyone needs God in their lives”.

We also found a map on the wall of Route 66.

We saw this old bicycle hanging in a restaurant along Route 66. Pastor Chick said that years ago he had a bicycle exactly like this one.

Today the weather began fairly nice, though a little bit cold. After a short distance, the wind came up from the west and was cold. Pastor Chick walked into this strong cold wind most of the way, making his trek for the day, though short in miles, seem long.

There was a roadside encounter while on I-40. a car pulled over, Andrea, Michelle, and David got out, and they talked for quite a while. They thanked him for what we are doing and said that we are doing awesome stuff.

As Pastor Chick left I-40 to find his stopping place for the day, he had another roadside encounter. Richard Randall had read about the walk in the Quay County Sun newspaper. He commented that it is much colder here in New Mexico than it was in North Carolina, and encouraged him to continue.

After eating lunch, Ernest saw the back of Pastor Chick’s shirt and inquired about the walk. He says we need something fresh in America and that he is a firm believer in creation.

Khadijah said ‘congratulations’ (for the distance walked) and appreciated what Pastor Chick is doing.

While putting fuel in the car, we met Pat Lujan who is from New Jersey but currently living in Albuquerque. He said we have to get rid of all racist ideas.

Day #152 Interests

This morning a man stopped and said he had heard Pastor Chick talking on the radio – and believes in what he is doing.

After he finished walking and went for lunch, Jason came over and asked if he is the man he has seen walking along I-40 all the way from Amarillo! He had been seeing him all that distance and finally caught up with him.
