"Jester" Section Hiker


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.

For a couple years now Jester has been interested in learning more about hammocks and switching to a hammock set up instead of tenting when she backpacks. Paul Collins (Skunkape) invited Jester to meet up at the Palmetto State Hangers "Spring Swing" to check out some hammocks and learn directly from people who have been hammock hanging for years!

Tune in as Jester chats with AJ Glenn (Phoenix) and Skunkape about what beginners should look for when researching hammocks, what companies they rely on for Hammock gear, and they also put to rest some fears Jester has about hammocking.
