(one less red dice than usual, because of the ‘prisoner’ event).
Used one 4 to cancel two 6s, and the other 4s to travel.
January 16, 1873: Day 14 of our journey. Another furious day of pursuit. Thankfully we suffered no more losses. However in losing our foes we also lost the trail. It was getting dark, and searching would only get us further lost, so we camped for the night.
January 17, 1873: Day 15 of our journey. We found the trail and continued on our way. But we are, I think, getting somewhat behind schedule. I am beginning to suspect that, despite Griggs’ talk, his gang has no intention of giving battle, but hopes merely to slow us down. We are close to Gold Hill now, and I am considering taking on some new hands when we arrive, in case it should prove necessary to make a stand.
