I stopped at Carp's Cave on my way up the mountain yesterday afternoon.
They told me they had a fresh pot of Viper Stew.
I had a large bowl with some Fried Scorpion Tails on the side.
That was a very filling meal and one of the best I have ever had.
I could tell that the viper was fresh.
I am now preparing for another trip to the trailhead to return camels for the travelers yet to come.
I will be dropping supplies at the caches at every oasis.
The Sheik and his men are scouring the desert checking for Nic and his bunch. He told me that they had been finding lots of traps out there.
Keep a sharp watch for traps along the trail my friends. Nic could have had them set anywhere.
Be especially careful in the Relapse Rocks and at Desolation Point. One wrong step could send you over the edge there.
I must finish packing supplies.
I leave in the morning to cross NML one more time.
I will be watching for everyone on the trails.
Travel safely my friends.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
