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 Austin have a great time in this episode talking about hammocks. You all know they both love their Dan Durston X-Mid tents, but also have a love for their hammocks as well. Jester is a new recruit to the hammock world, while Austin has been out many nights with his hammock set up.

There are many new terms in the hammock world and Jester has enjoyed learning about them all from whoopie slings, bug nets, top quilts, bottom quilts, ridgelines, dcf tarps, poly tarps, knots, and hammock styles.

Austin started hammocking with an REI Hammock set up but now seems to love his Warbonnet Ridgerunner, Hammock Gear Tarp, Dutchware Ridgeline Kit, and Easthill Outdoors Dragon Fly.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
