Ascent Trip ReportArt Loeb TH off of FR 610. This one took a long time since earlier in the day, while at the ice machine in my hotel, I dislocated my SI joint in my lower back. Went to a local chiropractor in Waynesville and thought he had popped it back into place. Did Fryingpan after my visit with him with mild discomfort. By the time I got to Black Balsam, the pain became moderate. Had to literally take baby steps the entire way. I wanted to go on to Tennent, but the pain forced me back to the vehicle for lunch. Quit for the day, then decided to go home early and end the vacation. Not happy.
