RE-visiting the Grave of the Georgia Werewolf
Refresh your memories of my recent visit to the gravesite of Emily Burt, the “Werewolf of Georgia,” before continuing. I mean, you don’t HAVE to, but this article here will make a lot more sense to you if you do. Unless you have a really good memory and can recall all the specifics and details. Bully for you if you do. *I* would need a refresher, if I weren’t the one who had actually done all this stuff. And even then I’d likely forget some of the details. Perhaps I already have.
As luck would have it, I was traveling through the area again this past week, and I felt I had to stop by for a visit. Emily and I are friends now, after all. I must say that it was a whole lot easier finding the gravesite this time, knowing as I did where it was located, so I didn’t have to spend so much time hunting for it. However, it’s STILL a hell of a hike, still hot (Boy, is it hot!) and dirty, there are just as many mosquitoes and fire ants as there were before, and if anything the site is even more grown-up and potentially snake-infested than ever. Initially I had planned to spend more time in the cemetery this time, exploring all the graves. The brambles and kudzu changed my mind on that. And the mosquitoes. And the fire ants. And the heat.
A quick visit, then, and I was on my way. With “quick” being a relative term, given how damn long it took me to hike out there and back again.
