Section Hiking IS A DIFFERENT MINDSET!
I first crossed paths with Alpha Gal back in the Summer of 2020 on a section of the Appalachian Trail. John met up with me and Maria Wishart on a section of trail just north of Shenandoah National Park. In fact as I am typing this it was July 4th 2020! Since then we have kept in touch mostly via Instagram and it's long over due to have Alpha Gal on the podcast! He's continued to Section Hike the AT and I hope he will share his plans with us for an AT Thru Hike in 2024!

Missing Hikers On The PACIFIC CREST TRAIL
Enjoy this Highlight Clip from Episode #162. Andrea's New Book, TRAIL OF THE LOST released on 8/22/23!  Andrea Lankford is the author of TRAIL OF THE LOST and RANGER CONFIDENTIAL, a National Geographic "Top Ten Book About U.S. Parks,” and three trail guides. During her twelve-year career as a law enforcement ranger with the National Park Service, Andrea won several awards for her criminal investigations. After leaving the ranger ranks, the accomplished outdoorswoman thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, kayaked from Miami to Key West, and was the first, with Beth Overton, to mountain bike the 800-mile Arizona Trail. Andrea is now a registered nurse living in Northern California.  Full Episode With Andrea: https://www.hikingradionetwork.com/show/jester-section-hiker/162-trail-of-the-lost-author-andrea-lankford/  Connect With Andrea Lankford:  Website: https://www.andrealankford.com/ Missing From The PCT: https://www.pctmissing.org/ Episode #66 - Cathy Tarr, Founder & Executive Director - Fowler-O'Sullivan Foundation: https://www.hikingradionetwork.com/show/jester-section-hiker/episode-66-cathy-tarr-fowler-osullivan-foundation/ Episode #82 - Sally Guyton Fowler & Terri Kidder: https://www.hikingradionetwork.com/show/jester-section-hiker/episode-82-sally-guyton/ Fowler-O'Sullivan Foundation: https://fofound.org/ Bring Kris Fowler/Sherpa Home: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1841283189418601 San Jacinto Trail Report: https://sanjacjon.com/ Appalachian Trail Section Hiker Series: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpmZshhnan2SCN-8gqQOXaADlaU_tEaYj  Connect with Julie "Jester" Gayheart: Email: jester@jestersectionhiker.com Website: http://juliegayheart.com Music By: Victor Lundberg "Top of The Morning"
