500 Mile Walking Journey with  Kerry and Jean  Let's Get Walking! 
Progress Report Time
It's Sunday Morning.  It's official  Summer's here. 

Today we walked up to our little market and got coffee and donuts.  We're trying to see if we can add miles by going to different places each day, just to mixed it up a bit.  However, we are finding that the most fun and interesting daily walk is around the  Spring Creek Marina with the birds migrating.  If you are just joining us this week,  we have just completed our second milestone of walking 50 Miles.  Here is our celebration. https://500mileswalkingjourney.blogspot.com/2017/06/500-mile-walking-journey-50-mile.html
We celebrated with our daughter, Sarah and our grandson James for a hike and picnic in the Ruby Mountains of Nevada.  Now that we are retired, and have all the time in the world, we thought we would walk, hike, and spend our days together outside in nature.  We thought we would share a few of our safety tips and support items that…

We cerebrated our 50 miles with our daughter Sarah and our grandson James.  We started the day by hiking a short 1/2 trail at Hanging Valley in Lamoille, Nv.   and then on to lunch at the Power House picnic area.  Medals Kerry medal says," All Glory Comes From Daring To Begin." Eugen Ware  Jean's medal says, " Nothing is worth more than this day." Jahann Woldfang Von Goethe This was a meaningful milestone since although there was no doubt that we would get here, it was just a matter of when.  Between resting, company, and weather, my motivation was going down.

Let's get walking!!





We made it!! 50 Mile milestone We have come to our next milestone, and it's time to celebrate!! We knew we would get there, it was just a matter of when.  I took a week off to rest my knee, than we had company.... it stormed, then it got hot.... the truth is sometimes I don't want to walk!! Oh, yes it happens.  I just kept saying to myself, " This is not a sprint, it's a marathon.".  It's not about how fast we do the walks, it's the journey.  
We walked around the Spring Creek Marina this morning, and what a surprise we found.  Two Minutes In Nature with a pelican.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fmYsznrt8M
Tomorrow we plan on going up the canyon 
with Sarah and James so they can celebrate with us.  Be Inspired, Kerry and Jean

We are so close to our 50 miles!!!
But not today!

Today we went for a hike up the Lamoille Canyon in Nevada.  We had to get out early in the day 
because today we had a
weather alert
about thunderer storms for this afternoon. 
Today's hike was all about 
flowers and waterfalls.



We tracked 1.9 miles today and will have less then a mile for tomorrows goal.
Our second goal is walking 50 miles on this journey.
Yes come back for our 50 mile celebration,

It's Progress Report Time
After returning from our 5k in Rexburg last week,  we spent the next week preparing for company. We went to the California Trail Center. We walked around their outdoor exhibits,  inside the museum. Kerry and I checked out a dirt trail we will be doing in the future.

This week we only managed one walk around the Spring Creek Marina.  Kerry's new trash picker upper has come in, he now picks up trash on our walks.  It's amazing how much trash he picks up everyday!!
We are so close to our 50 mile goal. Where would we be if we were doing the  Camino de Santiago walk in Spain.  If I were to walk this path, I would start in France, and do the French Way.
Here is a detailed day by day of Stage 1. https://www.macsadventure.com/us/tour-151/camino-stage-1-st-jean-pied-de-port-to-logrono
