A number of vehicles passed by today. We had plenty of notice, so we were well out of sight before they came into view.
Many more came from the hospital behind us than came from the army ahead on the pass. I concluded that meant that things must be going very well for the army.
This appeared to be confirmed shortly after when trucks lumbered by carrying the elements of the mobile hospital.
And we were once again dropping further and further behind the army.
So, with Elijah’s consent I dispatched Tomas ahead for the express purpose of finding a better way to catch up.
But when the time came to camp for the night, Tomas was nowhere in sight.
