We have stayed put today in the nice dry cave Elijah found for us. We need to sort through some issues before making our next move.
Just as we had our news to share with Tomas and the Captain, so too have they returned the favor.
They had observed various scouting patrols in the area, each one checking out the routes up to the mountain pass. All have hastily beat a retreat back down to the plain.
Tomas went out on his own to see what was what. He brought back some unsettling news.
Dire warnings are posted on the roads westward. They warn that radiation is present at dangerous levels.
It must be why the army has not budged.
