I began the slow climb up a little used trail to reach the spot where I am to meet my guides. They will lead me on up to a secret cave hidden somewhere at the top of the mountain. There they will lay The Old Goat to rest.
When I arrived at the foot of the mountain, a message was waiting. It seems she left several very large containers of scrolls for me.
I am to remain at the top of the mountain till I have read them all.
All I was told in the message was that they had been placed in a cave somewhere up there. I will be guided there after she is laid to rest, there to remain till I have read every scroll in the containers. I don't have any idea how long it will take for me to read them all.
The guides told me that they will deliver any messages that are sent to me up the mountain and return the answers back down the mountain if there are any questions that need answered.
I have asked the Sheik to watch over the caravans and keep the caches well supplied.
Safe journey to all.
