JWL Moab Expedition

extended care for men adventure bound

The Moab expedition has always been my favorite. I’ll never forget my first time there when I was a client in the Lodge. I had never been to Utah before, so I had no idea what to expect. I remember seeing nothing but empty fields once we crossed the border into Utah and I was wondering what the heck we were going to do in this barren, dried up wasteland. But once we got off our exit and made our way into the town, I was completely taken back by how beautiful the massive, red, rocky surroundings were. It was like I was in a Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote cartoon. Nothing has changed since that first trip; it still blows my mind every time I’m there. This last trip was just as special as the rest. With 23 clients in attendance, I was almost certain there would be some drama…

Congratulations Sam

Today we say congratulations and Merry Christmas to Sam Goff, who is celebrating 4 years of recovery today. Sam is one of my best friends. He is an all-around great guy, as well as a loyal, honest, and caring friend. It is safe to say that Sam is indeed loved and respected by all who know him. Sam is a valuable asset to the Jaywalker team, and a respected member of the recovery community. His humble nature and kind demeanor allow him to easily communicate, and relate well with young men in early, recovery….. Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah….. NOW LETS TALK ABOUT HIS ABS! Sam does 8,000 crunches a day, and he is always flexing. He has taken about three times as many pictures with his shirt off then with it on. Seriously, you couldn’t keep a shirt on this guy if the temperature was -40 degrees outside. Just…

Congrats Alex

What can I say about Alex Colins except, Wow! What an incredible specimen of a man. I first met Alex at Fotion’s Gym in Carbondale, and knew from that moment that this was a guy I could learn something from. Not only is Alex the strongest man in all of Carbondale (soon to be the world) he is also incredibly kind, funny, humble and smart. But what I admire most about Alex is his willingness to help others in need. He has always been someone I can go to for advice, or at least vent to about my own drama. When Alex was working as a tech here at the Lodge I would watch as he worked diligently on his CAC classes. Working at Jaywalker is not a job Alex takes lightly; he really wants to make a difference in the lives of all the men here. Alex’s goal is…

Papa Ed Celebrates 4 Years

I’ll never forget the day I met Ed Milos. It was my third day at Jaywalker and I was still feeling homesick and unsure about whether or not I wanted to be here. I remember calling my Dad that afternoon and telling him that I didn’t plan on staying out here for 90 days. He told me to go to a meeting, so I did. It was the Thursday night men’s meeting, which Ed was chairing. I remember sitting down, looking across the room and seeing this guy dressed head to toe in Boston sports apparel. After the meeting Ed approached me and asked where I was from. Turns out we knew each other from back home. Ed went to the same school as my sister and hung around some of the same circles as I did. After reminiscing with Ed on life back home, and hearing about his experiences at Jaywalker,…
