As I began digging out the waterhole last night, I began finding all kinds of junk that had been thrown in to fill it up.
Some I will send to be repaired as they can be used by travelers in their travels. Others will be taken out into the desert and either buried or burnt as they are of no use.
I have been finding streaks of tar and containers of other chemicals buried in the sands choking the waterhole.
The Bedoin will have to destroy these things so they cannot be used against the travelers.
I have looked at the trees and I am sure they will survive the fires that were built to destroy them. There are Dates forming on them and they should begin ripening soon.
I have also been finding some of the missing supplies buried in the waterhole. After they dry out they should be OK to use. Nic's plan to destroy them failed as they were not harmed by the water.
I am also pulling stones from the storage cairns out of the sands as I dig.
Back to work now.
Travel safely my friends and be wary.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
