Day 162

Day 162
I slept in! I met up with Roger and we checked out of the hotel. We made our way to the Cathedral of St. Augustine for mid-day Mass.

Cathedral of St. Augustine, Tucson, AZ

We arrived a little early, and passed through the Holy Door of Mercy together. There was a funeral going on inside. Roger had to make a few phone calls outside, I decided to attend the rest of the funeral Mass. I sat in the back.

After the funeral, I spoke to the priest and went to confession! I wandered around, said some prayers, and took a few pictures. 

Roger and I attended Mass at noon!

And then, we parted ways. Roger had helped me out so much! Food, shelter, clothing, and donations! He headed off to the airport, and I headed northbound.


I met Willie by the bus station! He was hungry, and I was able to give him some leftovers from dinner the night before, and a bag of peanuts. We chatted for a few minutes. Willie used to be a bus driver for 30 years or so. We parted ways.

I followed sidewalk through the north side of town.

I met Eric and Tesa! They had a little homeless camp, and were having a yard sale! I bought an umbrella from them. I figured it might come in handy for UV protection in an emergency. They were really nice and thankful. I was also able to help them out with a little more money.

I stopped at a Jack in the Box and ate a burger. I hit the road.

Frontage road! Right along the interstate. But thankfully, the frontage road led north for miles and miles. I wouldnt have to step foot on I-10!

I kept moving.

And watched the sun set.

There wasn’t much traffic at all along the frontage roads. I kept moving through the dark. I chipped away at the miles:

Just before 11 p.m., I found a grove of trees right along the frontage road. I was just inside Marana, AZ. 

I set up my hammock and fell fast asleep.
