As the night came on, we saw the light from that campfire still in the same place. It occasioned a lively debate.
The Captain, backed by Tomas’ judgement, wanted to find a way around it. To that end Tomas volunteered to run in advance of us to reconnoiter.
Elijah and I, however, held a different opinion. We wanted to continue on and catch up to these people – all based upon the revelations that Elijah has received, and the confirmation that I’ve been convinced to accept.
What I had to say on this matter resonated with our friends, and they at last acquiesced.
At the end of this night’s trek, we estimate the camp to be only one more night away.
