Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Our Toughest Retreat Yet!

A few days ago we completed our toughest "In-Motion" Retreat Yet. 
We hiked 36 miles in 3 days wearing 40-48 lb backpacks.

As I mentioned, It was tough, brutal, but soooo spiritually rewarding and nourishing.

Wow, you guys must be in really good shape. Used to do similar things, but I think those days are gone. My husband hiked all but a few miles of the Appalachian Trail with our son, and he KNOWS those days are gone. All the more power to you! I hope it was more than tough; I hope it was rewarding and fun.
