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 speaks with Maria Wishart aka Wheezy Pee and shares current updates on how the town of Duncannon, PA not far from the midway point on the Appalachian Trail is being affected by the Corona Virus. We know things are changing rapidly but wanted to give the listeners a perspective directly from a trail town.

Jester welcomes Rachel Harmon to the podcast today! Rachel talks to us about her Section Hiking adventures on the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand and her pursuit to section hike the Colorado Trail. Rachel introduces us to some new hiking terms such as Tramping and Cobber!! We can all take a lesson from Rachel by remembering to smell the Pines, accept the healing power of the trail, and to bring our Sleepy Socks!

"Let's Talk Gear" w/ Steve Kammeyer: On this episode, we finally learn about Steve's "Trail Name" and Steve answers listener questions about water filters, smart-watches, and hiking poles!!
