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.

West coast section hiker, Chris Armstrong joins Jester's Class of 2022 Section Hikers this week and is Jester's final member in this series of episodes. Chris shares with us how he ended up on the west coast in the foothills of the Sierra, his section hiking plans for the summer in the Sierra Mountains on the PCT, and some "bonehead moves" he's made in the past when it comes to his gear!

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
