Episode #28 - "Jester" Section Hiking the AT (Days 19 - 25)

It's Steaming!!!

Jester has had another great week section hiking the AT this summer, working on a second completion of the AT!


‪⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀‬
‪This week Jester had the chance to interview and spend time with “Fresh Ground”, who runs the famous Leap Frog Cafe on the AT.  She also interviews more thru-hikers as they work their way back on trail to continue their dreams of a thru-hike and be part of the unique hiking class of 2020!


‪⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀‬
‪The heat cranks up and the humidity is high, but that did not stop Wheezy Pee from joining Jester on July 4 for another 20 miler! Big thanks to AlphaGal for joining us for a bit on the 4th as well!!‬
‪⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀‬

As the heat and humidity continue to rise Jester takes a look at her schedule and adjusts accordingly!  This week ends with a picnic in Harper’s Ferry with Stickbuilt who Jester met in 2012 and she has officially moved beyond VA! ‬
