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.

If you enjoy watching reality TV, you might have seen an episode or two of Naked and Afraid. And you may have seen the Naked and Afraid episodes with Jester's guest today, Dani Beau. Not only has Dani been extremely successful on Naked and Afraid, she is also a highly trained and educated in Search and Rescue.


Dani shares with us how she began her career as an EMT, worked in Search and Rescue both in the U.S. and Iceland, and how we as hikers can avoid a search and rescue situation, as well as hypothermia, by being prepared and planning for our hikes.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
