Days 17 and 18: Settling In (Five Klicks)
From the Journal of Maya Ceros, Days 17 and 18.
The Hazy Caves are here. They're nearby. I know it. Now, I just have to find them.
For the better part of a month, we've been on the move. For the better part of a month, we've been cutting our way across the wasteland, trying to get as far from Cinder Hill as we can, never staying in any one place for long. This place, though-- something about this place feels important. Something about this place is keeping us here.
So of course, we start attracting attention.
Day 17 was Scrags, and they didn't give us much time to prepare. These ones were smarter than the last batch, tried to catch us unaware. Getting to them before they got to the rest of the convoy was an urgent mission, but the skies were clear and there were only eight of them, so I had a good feeling about the encounter.
