Episode #114 - Jennifer Browndorf (Low Gear)

Episode #114 - Jennifer Browndorf (Low Gear)

Jester is back this week with Jennifer Browndorf (Low Gear). Jennifer is on to tell us all about her section hike completion of the 1175 miles Mountains To Sea Trail.

Previous guest of the podcast, Jennifer Browndorf (Low Gear), is back with Jester to share all about her section hike completion of the 1175-mile Mountains To Sea Trail. The MST starts at Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and ends on the outer banks on the tallest living sand dune at Jockey's Ridge State Park.

Jennifer loved the planning and logistics aspect of her section hike on the MST as much as the hiking. She wanted to make sure she got in the miles but also take advantage of seeing all the sights, food stops, trail angels, shuttle drivers, and services each segment of the MST had to offer!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!

I am a married mother of two adult children, one boy, and one girl. I live in and love the diverse natural regions of North Carolina. I recently retired as an NC public school educator who now works part-time for the NC State Parks Dept. I am an avid hiker, a self-taught backyard birder, an all things outdoors lover, and (in a past life) a pretty good trail runner. I spend my free time with my dog walking and hiking, meeting up with friends for day hikes, bike rides or pints, learning new stuff from YouTube, planning trips with my husband, and reading. I enjoy volunteering for the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail as a trail maintainer. I am a lifelong learner that just can’t stop trying out new hobbies like watercolor painting, dehydrating food, and video creation. I am grateful for the full life and rich opportunities that have come my way.
