I return to my group and make sure everyone is OK. There were a few small shakes while I was away but they camped in an open area so they stayed safe. We can't stay here any longer though. A big earthquake is coming. I can feel it. My sense of the tectonic plate activity deep beneath our feet has been bugging me all day. It’s like this pressure building up inside me until it makes me almost want to scream. Not good. Whatever is coming is big and dangerous for us. We will have to travel at night.
Night travel is not without its own dangers. We are again, however, without any choice.
As we walk the air gets colder and colder. My fingers begin to cramp. We will need to speed up our pace just to stay warm.
