"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.

Jester introduced us to 2016 missing PCT Hiker, Kris "Sherpa" Fowler back in Episode #13. Jester has also shared with us that her sister, Terri Kidder, is very good friends with Kris's Mother, Sally Guyton Fowler. Most recently, you can hear more about Kris in Episode #66 with Cathy Tarr, Executive Director of the Fowler-O'Sullivan Foundation.

For this episode Jester shares with us her chat with Terri and Sally. Terri and Sally share with us what was happening from a family perspective when Kris initially went missing in October of 2016. The majority of the time on the show you hear from section hikers and their perspectives on hiking but today you will hear what it's like for families at home while their loved ones are out hiking.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
