BOTETOURT CO., Va. -

A scenic adventure is nearing the end for a Kentucky man.

Sunday, Logan McCulloch made his way through Botetourt County.

He's two-thirds of the way through his mission to raise awareness about Lyme disease.

Logan caught the disease in the spring of 2011 while he was hiking with his son.

He was so sick, he lost his job and was misdiagnosed a number of times.

But, now he's on the mend and taking his mission and message along the Appalachian Trail.

He's 1462-miles in to this roughly 2180-mile voyage.

"I want people to know that chronic Lyme does exist and if you miss the diagnosis, this infection is a cousin of syphilis, and it can attack any part of the body and mimic many other diseases like diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, MS, ALS. I want people to know how to prevent getting bitten in the first place, and be their own health advocate if they are bitten," says Logan McCulloch.

Even though Logan contracted Lyme's through a deer tick bite while hiking, he tells people they don't have to give up what they love doing.

Logan wears tick protective clothing.

He says it works- he hasn't had to pull a tick off in 4-months.
