Calm has descended upon us again. This after we have discovered that Stan was not lost, but his disappearance was planned. He abandoned us.
I was going through our supplies and found that someone has heavily pilfered from them.
Anyway that was my conclusion deduced from that discovery. But Lyle takes it a step further. He believes that Stan was actively trying to impede us, which in his estimation makes it all the more imperative that we leave now and get back on track.
Between us we got every thing left packed up and ready to go. By the evening we had left the picturesque lake area behind us and set up camp to spend the night under the stars.
