Nic has set many traps out here in NML.
I have found pit-falls in several places. I filled them back in and those spots are safe.
I found several of his helpers out here waiting to whisper sweet thoughts into travelers ears. They promise so much if you will just light up one of those death sticks.
All you will get is health problems and heartache. They can be very persuasive, so beware and don't listen to their sweet promises. I left the ones I found deep in the desert tied to stakes.
I caught one of Nic's helpers just as he was getting ready to poison an oasis waterwell with his tars and nicotine. I'm not sure what else was in the mixture, but it didn't make it into the water supply. I stuffed him into one of the barrels and buried it deep in the sands far off the trail.
Hold onto that precious quit you have been nurturing travellers. That is the most important thing you can do for yourself.
Take the journey one day at a time. Rest when you need to, travel at the pace you are comfortable with. There are helpers all along the trail. You need only call to them. They will find you as quickly as they can.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
