Howdy! I'm Bethany from Houston, Texas. Ever since learning about the AT a little over a year ago I've been planning my hike, but i'm still having trouble trying to figure out how to keep a pint of blue bell ice cream in my pack without it melting! Just kidding (sort of). It's slightly crazy that people voluntarily hike ~2,190 miles, but hey my mom always says that I'm a nut, so I guess it's the perfect adventure for me!
