Settling into camp last night had been a ragged affair. Hardly unexpected given we were a large group trying to do something together for the first time.
The five of us, plus P, met early in the morning to talk about better co-ordinating our movements. Thus we were able to lumber off with the minimum of aggravation, taking up the same marching order as yesterday.
We agreed to maintain the same order when we halted.
The one question we did not resolve right away was Tomas’s position in the column. Both Mei and the Captain wanted his help with their groups.
At the last I decided that he needed to be out front where he does best, scouting ahead.
