Episode #109 - Setting Realistic Expectations

Jester and guest co-host Charissa Hipp do their best to answer a frequently asked listener question, "How Do You Plan For Your Section Hikes?”

Jester is happy to have back on the podcast ATC Visitor Center Supervisor, Charissa Hipp. Charissa starts off the episode with some updates from the ATC, and some information about the Flip Flop Festival that is planned for April 23, 2022.

In the heart of the episode, Jester and Charissa do their best to answer two frequently asked listener questions, "How do you plan for your section hikes?" and "What do you do in between section hikes?" As you will hear, those two questions are not easy to answer!

Charissa Hipp is the Visitor Center Supervisor for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry, WV. If you are ever in Harpers Ferry, please stop by and see Charissa! She would love to chat with you!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
