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.

I first crossed paths with Alpha Gal back in the Summer of 2020 on a section of the Appalachian Trail. John met up with me and Maria Wishart on a section of trail just north of Shenandoah National Park. In fact as I am typing this it was July 4th 2020! Since then we have kept in touch mostly via Instagram and it's long over due to have Alpha Gal on the podcast! He's continued to Section Hike the AT and I hope he will share his plans with us for an AT Thru Hike in 2024!
