Big Jim

Howdy!!! I'm Big Jim and I am a thru-hiker for the class of 2017. But, I am a little different. I am actually starting from Panama City, Florida and hiking all the way to the Canadian border and weather permitting continuing hiking the International AT into Canada, Newfoundland and to the trails end at Belle Island. I am walking with a purpose. As a recovering addict alcoholic for over 34 years, and this being my first time ever sober in my adult life, I am taking on this journey impressed by God to walk. This is a spiritual journey of self discovery that I pray will bring a message to all affected by addiction in any way that there is HOPE! There is LIFE after addiction! There is a new life after recovery.
