Though we took to the trails upon the hillsides, we kept to those which held a view of the road, for we wanted to confirm the warnings of our erstwhile ‘defender.’
We did not discover what he was talking about until this morning.
There was a rather large encampment straddling the road. And as we sat watching we indeed saw army convoys being let through and civilians being turned back. Which made us wonder if the tanker trucks were operating any longer beyond this point.
Elijah and I then decided to turn our faces to the hills, as we had little reason to keep the road in view.
Before we did, I noticed a patrol set out in our direction.
