Twin Lakes Expedition
This past week I was once again given the opportunity to give back to Jaywalker Lodge. I went along on the Twin Lakes expedition as a volunteer. Expeditions are always fun, we ride mountain bikes, climb, go whitewater rafting, and visit a hot springs. But the benefits are far more than just having a good time. While on the expedition as a volunteer I help cook meals, drive the clients and lead them in activities, and am also a source of knowledge. While riding mountain bikes on the Rainbow trail a client asked me “what was the hardest part of your recovery once you left jaywalker lodge?” We continued to have a long discussion about how men like us live in the world, sober. It was helpful to the client but also helpful to me so that I can continue to grow in recovery. I graduated more than 3 years ago and have been volunteering ever since. It is a huge part of my recovery and I intend to keep that going!
