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.

This episode of the podcast is very special because it is the first time Jester has on Section Hikers from the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Kris Van Handel and Jared Wildenradt share their journey of how they met and why they love to section hike the IAT.

Kris has written a book titled "Hiking with Hair Tie: Section Hiking The Ice Age Trail" and Jared always has a "Trail Business Card" in his pocket to share with those that want more information about the trail. Thank you both for being on the Podcast!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
