The "Jester" Section Hiker is the premier podcast with the spotlight on section hikers!

The stories you will hear are about everyday people who, in addition to their everyday lives, make the commitment to hike long-distance trails where every section is a new beginning. 

From National Scenic Trails to National Parks and all Trails in between, listen with your host, Julie “Jester” Gayheart, to hear what it means to be a section hiker and the adventure that awaits them section by section.

Here comes "Johnny" - "Johnny on the Trail" that is. In this episode of the "Jester" Section Hiker podcast Jester has a conversation with Johnny Osborne about his Section Hike on the AT for his Birthday, the GSMNP 900 miler, and the SB6K Challenge. Johnny seeks out hiking adventures and loves the challenge of planning for them just as much as the actual hiking. Please check out Johnny's Facebook Group Page Titled: "Hiking The Smokies."

"Let's Talk Gear" w/ Steve Kammeyer: Jester and Steve continue to learn more about Steve and his hiking adventures. Steve wanted to bring on a guest who went with him on his most recent hike of the Black Mountain Crest Trail in North Carolina so we did! Today you will hear from Steve and Greg Bell as they talk trail and gear recommendations! Thanks, Greg for joining us on the podcast!
