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.

Mills Kelly, host of The Green Tunnel podcast, joins Jester to chat about his journey on the Appalachian Trail that began as a kid in 1971. Mills refers to himself as a lifetime AT Section Hiker and enjoys learning and sharing the history of the AT.

You will hear in their conversation Mills referring to various historical landmarks along the trail and responds to one of Jester's questions with an answer that came from Myron Avery back in 1937.

Mills Kelly is also a historian and College Professor at George Mason University. Mills has taught classes regarding the history of the Appalachian Trail and now produces The Green Tunnel Podcast along with his team at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
