The Fall

Blog Post created by OldBones-Larry on Feb 27, 2018

Several people have fallen off the edge at Desolation Point lately. What could be the reason?
All the warning signs are still in place. The trail is still in good repair. Why are people still falling over?
Could it be that they are distracted by the view? There is nothing but sand dunes to see.
They are just not looking where they are going? I hope this is not the case.
Are Nic and his crew sitting at the bottom calling up? This could be it. They could sit back under the overhang and cause people to overbalance and fall.
Are Nic and his buddies hiding then rushing out to push them over the edge? This is another possibility.
All have been rescued and sent back for treatment of their wounds and recovery. I have sent patrols out to see if we can find any of the Nicotine Crew.
I must caution all travelers to keep a sharp lookout for traps and be vigilent of Nic's tricks.
Be strong in your journey. Call out if you feel weak and need help.
Don't let Nic and his buddies lure you away from the true trail. It is well marked. Trust the tracks left by past travelers. They will keep you on the true path.
I want to see every traveler at the end of NML. We are waiting to welcome you with a feast at Carps Cave.
Keep the mountain in sight and travel towards it at all times.
We will be waiting for you my friends.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
