Entry 15

The bosk are in no shape to attempt the crossing. They will need more time to graze and rest, and we will give it to them.

We may be under Kassar Scout eyes, but I see no way the entire Kassar camp could have caught up to us yet. Scouts for certain. A few Oralus, very possible. Their entire column, no. They too would have to fight the same terrain, the same mud, the same weather as we.

I have decided to take the crossing in stages.

We will rest the teams here (Until we can get back in the room to rp), and when rested the column will finish the distance to the crossing of the RoT and halt there to rest further before crossing (Giving us a night of rp to get back in the groove and to plan one night ahead for the crossing).

Then we cross the RoT when we are all fresh.

Until we move, keep an eye out for Strangers and the other Wagon Peoples. Tend the stock, make all repairs necessary to proceed. Eat well, and rest as much as possible after the work is done.

The rest seems to have helped. The teams seem better as do the people.

Our Scouts had a brief skirmish with Kassar Scouts and though our Scouts suffered no loses, injuries were sustained.

The herd and column are in position to begin the crossing at first light. (Early tonight)

Make all preparations to do so and remain alert for Strangers. Once across, continue moving until directed to halt. We will tend to matters at hand before pressing on to our wintering lands.

This is our last major obstacle.

Once we arrive, we are then able to venture to The Point for supplies and some relaxing pleasures.

LUCK!!!!!

Tuchuk has crossed the RoT. The number of casualties and loses are yet unknown. Often many find their way home rom downriver. Time will tell.

We suffered some extensive damage to some wagons, and not so extensive to others. It is safe to say all the wagons will need some work to various degrees. We did lose some wagons as well as their occupants. Such is to be expected, but one never gets used to it no matter how many times we make the crossing.

We will remain in place for the night. Make the repairs necessary to move again, see to the stock, then get some hot food and rest. Sides of bosk turn on spits over fires for all who wish to indulge.

All Healers and medical staff will unfortunately not get much rest. They will be tending casualties through the night.

I must tend my mount as he picked up something in his paw. Then I will make rounds getting a closer look at the cost of the crossing.


Well done Tuchuk!!!!!

After looking over the stock, the wagons, and the injured, Tuchuk remained in place another day and night. The grazing is good, water is in no short supply, and the column has pushed hard this march. It was needed.

We pull out in the morning and I am considering pushing straight through to our wintering lands without any stops longer than watering the stock and moving on again. Wee are within two days of where I wish to spend the winter.

Once there, and the camp is formed, the venture to The Point will be a welcomed respite from the march. I look forward to it. It is more relaxing than Turia, and supplies should be more plentiful and at a cheaper rate.

But for now, we must remain focused on matters at hand. Be ready to move again at first light and try to push on through.

Tuchuk is on the march again and making VERY good time. The column will continue moving through the night.

We now draw closer to our wintering lands. Just a but further to go.

Entry 20


The column continued onward at a good pace stopping only to briefly water and rest the stock and to gather wounded from a skirmish with Kassar Scouts. Tuchuk suffered no fatalities but did incur casualties.

Once the wounded were recovered, the column proceeded onward to our wintering lands. The column of march has formed into a single file to encircle the encampment area. Some wagons will be moved within the formation to assist in forming the camp from the inside out come daylight.

All Warriors will be on alert and positioned around the entire wagon file and encampment to provide security until the camp if formed and is no longer vulnerable to attack. The herd is grazing under the watchful eyes of Outriders.

When the column encircles the camp and comes to a halt, tend the stock, eat, and get some rest.

Forming the camp is always time consuming and draining physically.

Well done Tuchuk. Hang tough for a little while longer.

Migration is complete. Well done Tuchuk.

The camp has formed, building from the center outwards. The standard is up, troughs out, and sleen cages out.

Fine tuning is a work in progress as is the Commissary area.

All things in time will be completed. The camp is secured.
