Emily Gibson

Hey there! I'm Emily. I'm a laughter inducing, never sarcastic, 23 year old chick from Pennsylvania. I'm in school studying Environmental Science, and about 3 years ago decided that in 2015 I would hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail Northbound. Off-trail Emily spends her free time gardening, attempting to go running (they say it's good for you), going to as many punk shows as possible, eating sandwiches, and rocking out on my bright yellow ukulele, Simon, which will be accompanying me on my trek). I'll be setting off for the AT at the end of February, and starting March 1, 2015.
