When you get to the motor pool, you find the Creeper and Sasha ready to roll out. The cargo consists of four powered push-carts loaded with crates of random gear suitable for TW construction; per your briefing, the actual components are scattered among the crates, and will be identified by the Techno-Wizard at the Monolith for assembly.
There's also confirmation vouchers for a night's stay at the Happy Days Inn in a folder on the dashboard, and a general map of the route there.
The first few days of travel are quiet, allowing for time to relax and consider your destination. Some folks have already been making plans; others have time to consider their options.
CS patrols are relatively predictable, right now, making them easily avoided. Once you're past Whykin, it's just a straight run to Kingsdale. However, about 4 hours outside of the town, Growler catches scent of a LOT of people in the area--well-hidden, if it weren't for his nose, he's not sure he would've been aware of their presence. Just as he notifies Snackhappy and the Creeper, a lone figure in camo-coated armor emerges from the underbrush, and waves to the vehicles to stop. The elven woman carries a rocket launcher slung over her shoulder, as well as a vibro-blade on her hip, but has not drawn any weapons just yet.
