Operation Mt. Gothics: coming to a weekend near you this summer.
Full disclosure: not sure if the weather will let us safely attempt. But if all goes well, myself and my motley crew (ok, @thecozyhipster and @maggierennoldson) will be taking our shot at this summit.
The first possibly FND related episode I can identify was on an expedition on Mt. Gothics. I had to turn back, and I was mortified. I had no idea what was happening or why I suddenly became so weak. I still don’t understand it. All these years, though, this mountain has been my nemesis. I’ve always said I’d come back for it. Since I got so very very sick, getting to the top has been my recovery goal. I’ve long said, I won’t consider myself fully past this era and struggle until I can stand on top of that mountain. It’s given me something tangible to work towards, which has been immeasurably valuable on my recovery journey. And now, soon, I’ll be there.
