After 8 days in the cabin, resting and healing, Earl and Kari set off ahead of the party scouting the way, making sure the path was safe for the rest of the party to follow.
Giving them two days head start, the rest of the party set out on day 10.
With the rest of their food and supplies, including anything they thought useful from the cabin in their modified wheelbarrow, the party departed, following the centennial trail until it ran into the highway.
Once they made it to the highway, the came across car after car, broke down for no obvious reason.
Each time they found the same thing. A vehicle that doesnt start or turn over or give any indication of power. A makeshift campsite where people stayed for a couple of days waiting for help, then tracks showing them finally giving up and setting off down the road towards the nearest town.
As they set off down the highway, they were surprised by a group on horseback.
Instantly noticing that 4 of them, a black guy who had been beat, a spanish woman, and their teenaged daughter, and a white guy, also showing signs of being beat, were tied to their horses.
The other four talked about it being the end of times, and how they had them a nice slave and a couple of fuck toys.
The party attacked, and quickly killed all four bandits, setting the prisoners free.
After agreeing that traveling together would be in everyones best interests, they set off again.
A few hours later, they made it to the Huttons camp site, where they had their horse trailer, and a smaller portable farrier and smithing trailer.
Will, spent a day converting the trailer over to be pulled by horse, with help from the party. Angelica and her daughter Luanne spent the day making boiled leather breast plates and canvas Jerkins with metal washers riveted in the middle.
Now on horseback, with a trailer in tow, the party set off trying to catch up with their scouting party before they reached the next town, a small former logging community.
