Hi, everyone! Glowstick here, a 2018 Appalachian Trail (NoBo) thru-hiker. I'm a dreamer, traveler, and nature-lover in search of happiness, adventure, and love. Lover of hiking, camping, and anything and everything outdoors, a tea and fancy coffee drinker (caffeine addict right here!), a part-time yogi and a mediocre rock climber. Pretty sure I must have been a mermaid in a past life. Future ambitions include hiking the PCT, learning to mountaineer, and eventually adopting dog (someday when I finally grow up). :)
