Tuesday, July 15 - The Curse is Lifted
There's a thousand foot climb to the ridge below Tinker Knob towards the end of this section that resulted in a curse last summer. It is a sun-exposed, steep affair and at the top last summer, Jane cursed me and my mother for ever giving birth to me. Jane was not happy that I had the idea to go hike. Well, as you can imagine, I was wondering how she'd react this year to the same climb.
Her words at the top this year, "I'm sweaty, but that really wasn't that bad." What a relief! It was my mom's birthday the next day and I didn't want her to have to live under that curse anymore.
