We continued our journey through the desert while Tomas inspected the villages along the road. We agreed to reconvene in the desert to the east of the last village two days hence.
Elijah thought that the day after should land us at the crossroads where we first met Jezer. At that point we could decide whether to return on the side to the west of the road, or retrace our steps to Babylon.
Our discussion out of the way, we trudged on in silence. But now a new thought was stewing in my mind.
Finally, I asked Elijah why we just did not wing to Babylon on the Spirit to check my hunch.
He replied that he had already asked.
