Episode #86 - "Jester" John Muir Trail (Days 1-5)

Episode #86 - "Jester" John Muir Trail (Days 1-5)

Jester summarizes what happened out on the John Muir Trail this summer and gives us a sneak peak on what's coming up this fall.


Sometimes, things don't always go as planned on our hiking adventures. You can plan, take practice hikes, dial in your gear, and try to mentally prepare for the journey you are about to take.

Jester shares with us her recordings from the first couple of days out on the John Muir Trail, her and Mighty Blue's decision to get off the JMT, and gives us an update on some upcoming events happening this fall!

Thanks for listening everybody and Happy Section Hiking!
