Supposedly, when someone takes home a souvenir of Bodie, say an old can, a piece of wood, whatever, then they get the curse. These people have bad luck until the item is returned.
There are numerous letters in the museum from tourists that did exactly that and then had HORRIBLE luck. They shipped the item back to the park to get rid of the curse. Now, I dont know if its true or not, it could just be the park service's way of keeping people from taking artifacts home! But come on, who needs help with bad luck, NOT ME! Good thing there's no curse involved with the squirrels, I'd be bummed!
Like usual, we were all screwing around and having fun the last time we were here. (CLICK HERE to see the pictures of us doing oddball things!)
