We are in another wilderness. And are breathing easier, as the police presence has dropped to nil. However, there has been a corresponding rise in drone activity. But with that an increase in their regularity and hence, their predictability.
We had conversed with some villagers on the edge of this wilderness, and they shared with us their belief that a large group of people is held up somewhere within this wilderness.
One even offered to accompany us, claiming complete knowledge of the wilderness, including an almost certain sense of where they may be.
Elijah thanked him but politely declined.
We were no sooner out of sight of the village, when we discovered he was following us.
Elijah scared him away.
