Mother-Daughter duo, Charissa and Julia Hipp, join Jester in this episode to share with you their passion and dedication to Section Hike the Appalachian Trail. Julia just recently turned 5 years old and as you will hear has her own pack, hiking pole, snacks she likes to carry, and a couple more special items that go in her pack.
