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.

Nancy East joins Jester this week to chat about her Smokies 900 FKT (Fastest Known Time) completion, her recent "mombattical", and why she decided to join the Haywood County Search and Rescue Team.

After you listen to this episode, please go check out Nancy's website titled "Hope and Feather Travels". There is so much information regarding Hiker Safety, Outdoor Education, and her personal hiking trip reports. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
