Amie Spring

Hey guys, what's up? My name's Amie. I'll be thru-hiking the AT July 9th. SOBO style! Board game geek. I play scrabble in pubs and get too competitive in Risk -I'll defend Great Britain against my American buddies with my dying breath. Can you tell I'm British? Coke and Kinder addict. Biscuits and Gravy lover.
