I met Walkin' Jim in 1993 at a National Trails Symposium in Missoula, Montana. We became very good friends, and I was privileged to join him for two different segments of his Yellowstone-to-Yukon hike. I believe that this program did an amazing job of capturing the essence, or soul, of Walkin' Jim. Much credit goes to Leslie, Susan and Scott for doing such an amazing job...I know that the hurt of losing Jim is still very fresh for all of them. Mark, you did a wonderful job of pulling all of this together into such a dynamic, beautiful presentation. Thanks for an amazing program.

I could not help but be on

I could not help but be on the trail with Scott, Leslie and Jim's sister, the great girl scout. I loved hearing your conversations and bringing out his fascinating adventures and great gentleness and ohhhhhhhhh, his grizzly voice and harmonica return Big Sky memories of Walkin' Jim. I was singing and humming along with you all in your Wisconsin gathering and I saw you smiling and weeping. Thank you very much.
