I looked out from the mouth of the Cave of Reflection this morning out across the desert of NML. I saw so many travelers on the trail and was so glad that they were out there. Many just beginning the journey, others nearing the end.
I would remind them to stay on the trail and not wander off course. Nic and his crew are just waiting for you to wander off the path so they can ambush you and bring you back into their club of addicts.
Rest at every oasis and refill your supplies. Regain strength for your journey that you may finish the crossing strong. Be very careful at Desolation Point in the Relapse Rocks. Many have fallen there and had to restart their journey after going back to heal.
I am sending word to the Sheik asking that he and his men watch over the trail.
I must now enter the Healing Cave to try and heal from the attacks my body has been enduring.
Travel safely and keep a sharp eye for traps.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
