Ruth

Hello there friends, my name is Ruth. I love tv shows, gear talks, reading a wide variety of books and eating a wider variety of food. I've been a Girl Scout for eight years and have a love of nature and a thirst for adventure. I have officially bored all of my family and friends to death talking about the AT and now need some fresh ears (that's where you come in!). I am planning on going on a NOBO hike starting this May. I hope you enjoy following me on that journey!
