There is a lot of water laying around the place

I like sharing this journey, I have the opportunity to do this, I move slowly through on this journey, so I share what I see for all to see. Some may never come out here, I was hoping to one day, now I can let others see what I see.

I don’t think of this as a marathon, this is the best trip and journey of my life, one that comes ones in a life time, to walk, ride and to have the time to film take photos and just look, right up my alley. Live it. – Noonie
