Going on the the third day looking for the transponder I still can't believe I left it somewhere. It's also been a couple of days since I heard anything from the scout groups and/or Therian. But my only contact with them is the transponder as well. I'm sure they're fine. They probably just went a bit further out this time. Note to self: Check back at camp to see if anyone knows where they were headed this time. I bet Thea knows...
"This is the area," I say to Kristen, one of the women around my age I brought with me. "I'm positive this is where I took the kids to show them edible plants. Yes! Look, there are the chokecherries I was showing them."
"Alright," she answers, "I'll go this way and comb around."
After about 2 minutes... "Thank gawd...." I sit down and Kristen comes near.
ATS TRANSPONDER: Greetings! SE ROCKIES here. Sorry for the delay in correspondences. I dropped the transponder out in the woods. It was NOT compromised. It was under some fallen leaves. Quick report to say we are still up and running. The scouts have been doing a hell-uv-a job locating the living and supplies. Our encampment has grown because of this. I'll be headed back down to camp to gather more details. Once I meet up with Therian again, I'll get details of what I've missed. Back soon. Over.
"Damn. I'm glad we found this. Even when it feels like we're talking to nobody. It still has a weird sense of comfort surrounding it."
Kristen smiled and we headed back to camp/town.
