The new movie “WILD” is not a 12 step story…Thank God and Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern Rock!!!.

Thank you for making this film !!!

I just came back from seeing the film WILD with Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern. WOW what a great film. No steppers bullshit, no rehab, no AA rhetoric hocus pocus nonsense. Just walking the PCT ( Pacific Crest Trail).

Now I have to admit I relate a lot to this film. No I never used heroin. I drank and smoked pot. But I did hitch hike across the country 3 times alone, in the rain the snow and during a summer.

I hiked up a huge mountain ( San Juan mountains) in south western Colorado at age 17 in the summer of 1974.

Crestone Needle is a high mountain summit of the Crestones in the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains of North America.Wikipedia
  • Elevation:
    • 14,203′ (4,329 m) This is where I hiked. I was with two friends. It was un fucking believably beautiful and it was a hard hike.

Here I am at age 17.
