San Diego Alumni Trip 2019

Jaywalker is excited to announce the next alumni trip to beautiful San Diego. August 7th to the 11th Jaywalker alumni will descend upon the sunny beach town of Ocean Beach in San Diego, California. The Colorado Rockies will be in town to play the San Diego Padres. We will have the opportunity to do anything and everything San Diego has to offer. Mountain biking, surfing, laying on the beach, and watching baseball games are just some of the options available. The cost is $200 that includes food, lodging, and a seat in trusty Sprinter number 5 to get out there. Any activity out there will be on your own dime so just know you will want to bring some extra cash if you want to catch a game, rent a surfboard, or do something outside of the normal activity. We are staying in a gorgeous house only 5 blocks from the coast,…

Congratulations Daniel F.

Greetings to all at Jaywalker Lodge, I started to write this letter to you all with true humbleness and appreciation for what you do and will continue to do for your clients in need of help.  You see, It’s June and somewhere around this date, two years ago, my son Daniel arrived on your door step in need of the “magic” that is worked there.  Well the magic worked, and I can’t thank you enough for what you have given back to our family.  It was the hardest and yet wisest choice we have ever made. However, on further reflection I must truly give the credit to Daniel himself.  Yes, Jaywalker provides the guidelines, tools, the support, knowledge, love and comradery, but without the dedication and hard work put into these things the results aren’t the same.  Daniel, you have worked so hard on your sobriety and your goals. You are a compassionate, empathetic,…

Winter 2019 Alumni Trip

Snowbird, Utah Jaywalker alumni descended upon Snowbird Resort in Utah, an amazing mountain with steep terrain and deep snow for the 2019 Winter Alumni Trip. We had fourteen of our alumni on the trip, most of whom had never been to the resort before. As usual, we were a mixed bag of ability, age, and background. We all share the common bond of being a Jaywalker. It is that bond that ties us together and allows us another day sober to enjoy the mountain and each other’s company.  Snowbird was amazing and definitely a mountain made for the more experienced skier and snowboarder. There was more expert, double-black terrain than intermediate terrain. There was a storm that came in and gave us “free refills” as we blasted down chutes and off cliffs while we all hooted and hollered as we watched our fellow alums shred. As always, we followed the…

Sunday Shred Day

All of our alumni love to shred so why not set aside a day to do it together. The tradition of Sunday Shred Day is alive and well. Sunday Shred Day is a new routine that is quickly gaining traction in our alumni community. We start every Sunday out with an option to go to the local Sunday morning meditation meeting. It’s a great way to start the day and get centered before the copious amounts of shred that the day brings. After the meeting we caravan to the mountain and let the fun begin! If you haven’t been, join us.

St. George Alumni Trip: October 3-7, 2018

The Jaywalker alumni program offers amazing opportunities for growth and fellowship. Our various alumni trips throughout the year are unique and exciting adventures that bring our alumni community closer together. Every trip has a magical way of uniting our men to truly experience fun and fellowship with their Jaywalker brothers. Our next alumni trip will be to St. George, Utah. This is always a fun-filled, action-packed trip. There will be dirt biking, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and golfing. The house has a theater, foosball table, air hockey, ping pong, pool, hot tub, bbq, and so much room for activities. After a long day we can come back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful house. The trip cost is only $200 which includes food and housing. Transportation to St. George is on the individual so plan accordingly; you can always call the Alumni Coordinator for help arranging a ride: Jon Lencioni 650-380-1388.

Jaywalker Lodge Havasu Falls Alumni Trip 2018

What makes a paradise? Is it the natural beauty surrounding you? Is it your state of mind? Is it the company you share? For myself and 11 other men, we found the answers to such questions after a 13- hour car ride followed by a 10-mile hike into the desert and canyons of Arizona.  As alumnus of Jaywalker Lodge, we were afforded the great opportunity to travel to the most remote town in the contiguous United States, Supai Village.  Supai boasts a population of around 300 native people and is about 60 miles from the next nearest town. People from around the world flock to Supai because it is only a mile and a half from the famous Havasu Falls. The trek in led us down steep canyon trails and after a grueling four-hour hike with 40lb packs on our shoulders we had arrived at our campsite.  Our collective breaths were…

Mike K: 3 Year Sober

When an all staff email comes across about one of our many alums that work at Jaywalker, we all pause for hugs, high-fives, and gratitude.  Mike is a crucial part of the men’s experience at Jaywalker Lodge on arrival.  Thank you Mike for all you do!  Here is the endearing email we all received yesterday: Hello All, My dear friend Mike Koschlakijflkasjfiojeoajfdlksj is celebrating 3 years sober today! Mike for the longest time thought today was Cinco de Mayo but did not realize that Cinco de Mayo is in fact May 5th and not May 2nd. Mike does not speak Spanish. Anyways, I wanted to give a big shout out to Mike for role modeling to our men what sobriety can look like and that works. Mike is seen at every meeting on every night, and although that takes away from our time together it allows him to be a…

Jon Lencioni – Alumni Coordinator

We would like to announce the addition of Jon Lencioni to the Jaywalker team, as Alumni Coordinator.  Jon’s ability to lead and understand the Jaywalker community is unapparelled and we are thrilled to have him in this position. Jon grew up in Menlo Park, Ca. Being outside playing sports was always his passion. At an early age, Jon started “experimenting” with drugs and alcohol which soon turned in to a full-blown addiction. This caused his pursuit of his passion for the outdoors and sports to fade. After high school, Jon took some time away from education and his addiction only worsened.  In 2009, Jon went back to school and attended a local community college in the Bay Area. He then transferred to San Diego State University where he pursued a degree in Entrepreneurship. It was in San Diego that his use caught up with his. He knew he had no…

Jaywalker Alumni: Keystone, CO

Five months ago I was alone, full of fear and completely stuck. I couldn’t escape the pain I was causing myself. Time and time again I had convinced myself that I could do some controlled drinking. Once again, I was stuck with that same hopeless gut wrenching feeling. I knew I couldn’t go on like this but was unable to pull myself out on my own accord. By the grace of God some Jaywalker alumni reached out their hand and I put down the fight. I thank God for that split second moment of clarity. Looking back my life has change dramatically in just six short months. Today, I am blessed with so many opportunities for which I can finally show up. I’m striving to be the man I always knew I was meant to be. My life is by no means easy today but it is satisfying to go…
