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 and co-host Austin Wallis continue their conversation this week centered around Post Traumatic Stress. Before you listen to this week's episode, be sure to listen to Episode #100, where Austin shared with all of us his definition of PTS, who PTS affects, and some examples of what PTS is.

This week you will hear how planning section hikes, paddling trips, and adventures help Austin cope with PTS and make him a better person to be around at home and at work. He also shares some valuable resources that are shared below in the show notes.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
