To get things back on track;

The temperatures during the day are mid to high 80's with average constant winds across the plains.

The grasses are still high and the bosk and other grazing stock are quite happy and content with grazing and the water supply.

Camp is, for the most part, set up and fully functional in all regards. The Clans are in various states of operation depending on their manpower and rate of production, though this is nothing new.

The Ubar and some hand picked Men of The 1st are on patrol monitoring the passing of the other migrating camps.

The Ubara and her Own are on a short hunting venture. Preliminary reports convey the game is plentiful this season in all areas surrounding the camp.

The Healers Own are hoping for some time to hunt when the Ubara's party returns.

The 1st Oralu has been stood down from active duty to rebuild and resupply, though standard physical training does continue.

The 2nd Oralu will step up and assume all interior camp areas security all the way to the outer camp perimeters.

The 3rd Oralu will assume all patrols around the outer perimeter within sight of the camp.

The 4th Oralu will patrol the west, north and eastern areas of our territory, and the 5th Oralu will butt their patrol range to that of the 4th with west, south, and eastern areas.

All Outrider Units will continue their duty rotations according to general orders.

All other Askari Oralu Units will continue normal duty rotations according to general orders and will be prepared to respond to any call when and wherever needed.

All slaves wishing to test will bone up on their level requirements in preparation.

All Clans will maximize their productivity in order to catch up and fill their inventories and meet demand... after which they may slow productivity to normal levels.

Normally new Warriors are trained during the winterings to fill losses and maintain Unit strength. Due to losses during migration, one, possibly two cycles will be run during this summering. A quiva has been lodged in the standard post of the main camp. Any young Man unable to stand upright beneath it will be considered large enough to join their ranks.

Transfers are taking place. All Oralumen will keep up on these and see to it all incoming Warriors are assigned and added to the duty rosters. Leave may be granted to any Warriors to simply take time to relax and tend their own affairs within reason. LEAVES MAY BE CANCELED at any time, and all Warriors may be required to report for duty. This means remain within a day's ride of camp.

Otherwise... enjoy the summering as it comes, live well, and be well.

Fall has fallen.

The highs during the day avg around mid 60's to low 70's with the ever-constant breeze.

The nights are growing cooler as soon as the sun goes down averaging mid to high 40's tops, though some being cooler have been noted.

The highs during the day are averaging the mid 50's.

The nights are dipping down to freezing and just below.

The usual light breeze exists.

Just as RT weather, there are exceptions, but this is the norm for now.

Temps at freezing or below during the night.
About a foot of snow on the ground with a hard crust.
Overcast skies, variable winds.

The temperatures are hot and humid with occasional rains and storms.

The wagons will soon have to begin their journey back South on migration to our good grasses and temperatures more conducive to the health of our bosk.

Due to ongoing hostilities, our supplies of luxury goods, as well as some essential goods have been affected.

Medical supplies still exist, but all care must be taken not to waste anything. Bear in mind that some may be used as substitutes in lieu of using just what is always simpler or more convenient.

All fruits and veggies in camp stores are gone. If any do still exist, they are in private stocks and would be minimal in amounts.

There are still good stores of flour and feed grains, as well as salt, sugar, and spices.

Paga, mead, and a limited supply of ale is still available. Wines and liquors are now only what is found in private stocks. Fermented bosk curds are once again becoming very popular among many Warriors.

(Though juices are not really a big drink on Gor, (an omission perhaps by JN?) we make use of them. These however, are now gone from camp stocks. Any that remain would only be very limited in private stocks.)

Bosk are, as always, plentiful. Tarsk, vulo, and verr are in good supply as well as any products obtained through these critters.

The hunting is non-existent in the areas of hostilities, though it is reported there is still game to be found Rim and Tun (East and Southeast) of camp.

Tea is still stocked in the med wagons, and in private stores, but camp stores are finished.

Blackwine, a drink normally only affordable to the very well off, might remain in the stores of the wealthiest of Tuchucks. The camp supplies kept on hand for special functions and dignitaries is gone.

The sleen and kaiila are primarily being fed by the Butchers Clan, and from fallen mounts and those mounts taken but of lesser quality remaining after replacing our own lost in action. There is also the occasional tharlarion taken from rare but unfortunate caravans. Most caravans are avoiding the usual trade routes at this time due to hostilities. It is reported what supplies Turia is getting, is being dropped along the Coast at landfalls and then taken overland to the City. It is not an easy endeavor nor are the supplies massive in amounts.

Now, we live without our luxuries. We eat quite simply, but well with good meat, poultry, and dairy products as our primary food sources.

Our Clans are still doing well. Only a few will begin to feel the pressure of lessening supplies. We still produce, much of what is needed to live. Again, it is mostly luxuries that have been affected.

In our wintering lands, pack away the winter gear. We are done with the snow. It is in the 70's to 80's during the heat of the day right now.

Bringing the weather up to date;

It is growing hotter as time goes by. Up in the Cartius Region where we are wintering, the days are hot and hazy with periods of bright sun. Given the haze, rain is in the air and is commonly threatening to fall. The nights vary from hot to comfortable.

What does keep it bearable is the constant breeze which does vary in intensity.

The bosk are beginning to grow restless, and this is a sign that soon the herds will begin to merge signaling Migration is about to begin.

Consistently in the mid to high 80's during the day, mid to high 70's at night, with constant winds varying in degree.
