Desert Changes

Posted by OldBones-Larry Jun 12, 2014

As I was storing supplies at one of the oasis this morning, I noticed the changes of 203 days roaming in this desert. My skin has become a very deep color and turned leathery. I went over and gazed into the water pool. My face looks like an old nut perched on my shoulders! LOL

I can't believe the changes that have happened in the last 233 days. I do have some physical problems from all the years of smoking, but I do have to say I feel better than I have in years. I can actually think without it being through a nicotine haze.

Thank you one and all that have been with me through all of this journey.

Keep Them Away From Your Face!

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.

I saw the Old Goat this morning and had a long visit with her. We talked of several thing to try against Nic and his friends.

I refilled the bag with Moses Dust at the cave so I would have it if needed. She also told me where to find the dust to dessicate several of our foes. I collected a bag of that as well.

On the way to the mountain I repaired the guardropes I had put up at Desolation Point. It seems Nic had sent some of his friends to cut them to pieces. I didn't see anyone that had fallen over.

We did catch one of the Tar Brothers lurking around though. After working him over, we hung him from a tall rock to bake in the sun for a while.Maybe he will melt into a puddle of goo.

I am going to rest in a cave that the Old Goat directed me to. She said that the energies there were very healing. She taught me a chant to use to relax and let the energies work.

At the camp at the base of the mountain, I have asked that many supplies be loaded on the camel that are to be returned to the other side of the desert. I will re-supply the stops along the way and fill more packs for the travelers entering NML.

We had a celebration for everyone that had made it through NML since I was last at this camp. I was so proud of each and every one of them.

The Old Goat told me to remind everyone to Keep Them Away From Your Face.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.

Love and hugs to all the travelers out there.

After several days of rest, I am feeling pretty good. The bedoins have cared for me and I have regained much of my strength.

Last night, several of my bedoins and I snuck into the twins camp. We cut into their tent from the back and tied them up. After carrying them far out into the desert, we buried them up to their necks in the sand. We made sure to gag them so they can't call for help. We are going to leave them there to eventually perish if it is the Creators will.

I am sure that they will be found eventually, but that might be quite a while. As we were leaving the place we had chosen, I noticed the wind had picked up and was blowing away our tracks.

I am on my way to the camp at the end of NML to restock on a few supplies. The bedoins are supplying the stores at all the oasis.

I have a report that there may be some travelers that have fallen over the edge at Desolation Point. I will check when I get there. If I find someone, I will rescue them and have the bedoins take them back to base camp to have their wounds from the fall treated. They can begin their journey again when they are recovered.

As I meet each traveler, I am giving them all the encouragement I can. They can complete the crossing of NML if they will keep the faith and follow the track of those that have traveled before them. I really hope my words of encouragement will help them complete the journey. I also pass on what The Old Goat advises everyone.

Keep Them Away From Your Face.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
