This day it seems we have spent more time off the road than on it. For the traffic has increased the farther west we travel. Tanker trucks mostly. But also some army convoys.
Their presence upsets Mei, for she fears it means that her comrades in the army are cut off or surrounded. In any event it doesn’t bode well.
Elijah is concerned that our westward drift is taking us away from our desired destination. So he has instructed Tomas to seek out a more northerly route.
With an expected full moon tonight, he is preparing to do just that.
Mei and the Captain put together our evening meal. And noticeably Tomas’ portion was double that of any one else.
