A Cross America: spiritually intoxicated ex-addict walks from Maine to Mexico

This is the story of a refurbished drug addict walking from Maine to Mexico with a cross over his shoulder and a legally blind guitar playing companion by his side.

This is the story of spiritual intoxication in the context of modern America.

This is the story of a guy with twenty bucks in this pocket and a entire continent to walk on faith alone.

This is the story of two men on the slow road across the USA.

“Hey, it’s called the Cross Walk.”
