1/4/14. In my tent off CA route 138 about 5 miles east of I-15. Yesterday morning, a car pulled alongside and a Mexican boy, maybe 12, got out and handed me a bag with a 2 litre bottle of Squirt and a big fat homemade chicken burrito! The gentleman driving said something in Spanish to the young man. He said, my father wants to know why you walk. After hearing my story he walked back to the car and I could hear him talking in Spanish. As I was walking away the little guy yelled to me. He ran up to me and said, “My father says you’ll be needing this,” and handed me a twenty. Yes, I do cry a lot out here. LOVE LIFE with all your heart and you will often cry positive tears of thankfulness for lifes precious gifts.
