Recovery on the Appalachian Trail

Hello friends!
As most of you know I have been struggling with addiction for many years. I have been through several treatment centers in the past and tried the "traditional methods" of recovery but I could not stay sober, so I knew I needed to something completely different in order to get my life together. I made the decision to hike the Appalachian trail with my brother. He dropped his entire life to do whatever he could to help me.
Our trip has been absolutely amazing so far!! It is truly a humbling and enlightening experience! Nature is a great healer.. I have learned so much a bout myself and have so much more to learn!! This is by far the best decision I have made in my life! I really want to make it all the way to Vermont, I know that I still have a lot of work to do on myself and it is going to take time. We are almost a quarter of the way through this trip. We've made it through Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee and are currently in Virginia!I have been posting updates and live videos on my FB page so my friends and family can follow us through this journey and watch our progress. The love and support has been such a blessing! I am reaching out to ask for help in order to make our goal to be in Vermont by September. If you are able to donate it would be very much appreciated! Anything helps!
