Feeling good, walking fast, making plans for 2018

[Pete’s son, Micah, posting in dad’s place. Apparently he’s off on some trip somewhere…]

Dad’s text messages over the last few days have been notably positive and introspective. From Sunday:

“In Rabanal, an especially good day of walking without pain and very fast still with ibuprofen. Walked with Mikko from Finland and talked about music especially a festival of choirs in Estonia in 2018. I want to go if I am still healthy then.”

I reminded him that he’ll be a spry 75 years old in 2018 – no reason to put limits on his travel for that!

Monday was arrival at Cruce de Ferro. Be sure to take a few minutes to read about the spot, if you have the chance – a quick Google search will deliver many pictures and a wealth of info. From Monday:

“At Cruce de Ferro. Spent an hour. Placed stones, thought about and prayed for lots of you. Important time. Much thought about mom.”

And later Monday:

“Much climbing today but felt very strong and went very fast. Long day of walking ending with the most beautiful evening sunset. In Riego de Ambros at a beautiful Casa. Very long and difficult rocky road that was steep going down. Was still the best day so far.”

Great to hear that dad’s having a self-described “best day so far” almost 600km into his trip.

And in case you missed it, be sure to check out the small album of photos on his facebook page!

    Hi Peter, great to hear you are feeling better. You are in better physical condition than me. I played light basketball for just an hour or so and my left knee is swollen!
