One Step at a Time is a unique organization melding outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking and biking with recovery. OSAT was started in 1991 by Jim Hinkhouse. OSAT is comprised of both an outdoor club and affiliated but separate AA groups. The public portions of this web site provide descriptions of our organization and activities, as well as a history of OSAT.
