I was sitting on the edge of Desolation Point, resting for a minute from repair work, when I saw something way out in the desert.
When I looked closer I saw it was a few travelers that had wandered away from the trail.
They seemed to be in some distress.
I immediately sent a couple of Bedoin with water and supplies to their aid.
I gave orders to help them as needed and lead them back to the main trail.
I will be going back towards the trailhead to make sure all the trail markers are in place when I finish these repairs.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find that Nic and his cohorts had removed or changed signs to lead travelers astray.
He wants you to get lost out there in the desert and lose your way.
He is sure that if he can accomplish that, he can destroy your quit.
Don't let that happen.
Keep the tracks of those that have gone before you in sight and use those to help you stay on the correct trail.
If the trail signs point another direction, follow the tracks of the camels. They follow the true trail.
Keep a sharp eye out for those Nic and his guys my friends.
They are intent on keeping you from reaching the other side of the desert.
They know that if you can reach there, you are well on your way to a forever quit.
Travel safely and cautiously my fellow travelers.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
