Episode #12 - Rachel Harmon

The Trail is Healing

Jester speaks with Maria Wishart aka Wheezy Pee and shares current updates on how the town of Duncannon, PA not far from the midway point on the Appalachian Trail is being affected by the Corona Virus. We know things are changing rapidly but wanted to give the listeners a perspective directly from a trail town.

 

Jester welcomes Rachel Harmon to the podcast today! Rachel talks to us about her Section Hiking adventures on the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand and her pursuit to section hike the Colorado Trail. Rachel introduces us to some new hiking terms such as Tramping and Cobber!! We can all take a lesson from Rachel by remembering to smell the Pines, accept the healing power of the trail, and to bring our Sleepy Socks!

 

"Let's Talk Gear" w/ Steve Kammeyer: On this episode, we finally learn about Steve's "Trail Name" and Steve answers listener questions about water filters, smart-watches, and hiking poles!!
