    Hello!

    I made this video to spread the word about a dangerous man hiking along the CDT.

    Please inform others to stay clear and safe of this monster.

    I watched this video and Sara appears to have done her homework on this guy. I hope those hiking the CDT see the video. I shudder to think there might be a situation similar to what happened on the AT earlier this month.

    Thanks Sara! After what happened on the AT, we all need to be vigilant and spread the word. I'm sending your YT link to anyone I am currently following on the CDT.

    Anyone seen Jim/Jay/Medic or know his current location this year?
    I'd love to meet him on the trail.

    Yeah what a total piece of garbage. He obviously has been arrested several times on violent charges why the heck can't they put him away for a very long time?. I like when sara said hikers have to stand and protect each other. Something goes down there's strength in numbers.

    thank you for posting this video Sara, without your help, others might be in danger from this guy. He belongs in prison-not hiking!

    thanks...

    this will all work out in the end...

    from the bad, comes the good.....this is an opportunity that i would be foolish not to do....

    i retired middle of may at the ripe age of 51, and get some work done on house.....

    then kick back and relax.....

    i would ask around on this dude but i might have burnt a bridge at my former employer......oh well......

    i'll play around during some downtime and see what i can figure out but it will take a while......

    as for providing intel and all that----sitting in front of a computer most all day at work, along with the nature of my brain wanting to
    learn and soak information about hiking (and as a result of my former career----asking questions all along the way to gain more info)------i get on these forums and spit it out for the rest of the world....

    The story was printed in Backpacker magazine not to long ago - I don't recall if it indicated his then-current whereabouts.
