We late started the day heading into the next valley south. This valley has managed to stay as one of the healthier places around. Here we'll pick up both food stock and some supplies for Stykz to work w/.
We feel safe enough to split up and do separate missions while listening to the air waves just in case.
Stocked, we meet back up and start rolling farther north and back into the trees. As we move out of the valley and start climbing, the Draggin' blows the last of it's coolant. I search for a place to pull off the pavement and find the remnants of some foundation.
While the mechs cool down I go over some paper maps looking for good spots to park-up, and cough a lot. I find two that look promising. Before rolling on I boot up the terminal in the Draggin' and activate the topos and tracker. The chance that it'll be picked up by others is slim, and I'll kill it before we turn off pavement. It will let me know that I'm getting close and keep us from having to go some unknown distance just to turn around after missing it.
The first spot looks to have been taken over by some industry, we keep rolling.
We find a bridge w/ pull-off and what may be an abandoned roadway.
After some exploring we decide it was where some major flood waters used to run, back when it was wetter around here.
