(6:18:31 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands to port near the mainsail boom, watching as they approach the island ::
(6:18:48 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: poring over the map, still not certain that this is the right island :: Self: I'm going to have to do some kind of refresher on these old tools. :: muttering ::
(6:19:53 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Lets out a big yawn as he settles in the sun, eyeing the island with vague and sleeping interest::
(6:20:02 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steersl lightly toward the island, adjusting as they travel into the wind, keeled over to a much greater angle than they actually need... because he thinks it's fun. ::
(6:22:06 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Lets out a small noise in reaction to the angle, but enjoys the warm wind from the bow of the ship::
(6:22:35 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wishes Linxi would hurry up from wherever she went off to :: Self: Well... it looks like if this is the right island, we should focus our search on the north shore.
(6:22:46 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::climbs the ladder to the main deck, coming up from her quarters where she'd been luxuriating in a nice long nap::
(6:24:22 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: notes Dr. Tailor :: CMO: Ah, Doc... you wouldn't happen to know how to use any of these by chance, would you? :: gestures at the archaic tools and treasure map ::
(6:26:11 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: peering through the sextant again, lining it up with the horizon as Linxi showed her ::
(6:26:30 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::squints at the tools in the bright sunlight, and the map:: CSO: That thing with all the gears.. can't say I know anything about that one. But I think I can handle the map.
(6:27:43 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Well, I think I've got the measurements right if you can help me verify with the map. So this island we're headed toward I think is the right one... :: points to map and then to the island, drawing ever closer on the horizon :: ... and I think this X is indicating the north shore. Do you concur?
(6:29:23 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::dressed in a pair of sailors pants and a striped shirt with a neckerchief, as you do on the high seas..::
(6:31:10 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::peers at the map, looking for the North, and looks at the legend, estimating the distance with her fingers:: CSO: So maybe.. yes, about tenish kilometers inland, and about... ::guestimates with her thumb:: five more kilometers north?
(6:33:13 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks where the good Doctor is pointing and nods, but gives a helpless shrug :: CMO: Sounds as good to me as anything I could come up with! :: grins ::
(6:34:08 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: I'm a doctor, not a navigator.. ::grins:: I guess we'll find out!
(6:35:28 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: crows with laughter :: CMO: Works for me! ::calls out :: CTO: We think we'll have to hike in, but it'll be on the north side of the island, so put in to port as you see fit with that information!
(6:35:58 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wright and then back at Wolfe in case he wants to issue orders, then continues to scan the horizon around the island ::
(6:37:04 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Giggles to himself as he spots beautifully coloured fish in the water, lying on his stomach trying to reach down::
(6:37:05 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: Aye.
(6:37:52 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns the wheel to port, tightening the direction even more toward the wind, causing the boat to keel over further. Of course, this doesn't actually make the boat go any faster, but agian... fun. ::
(6:38:10 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::shifts her medkit on her shoulder, hidden in an oiled leather bag, to keep it in period::
(6:38:41 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::just in case someone, y'know, falls overboard or gets bitten by a fish or something::
(6:38:50 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: doesn't notice the cat almost falling overboard and watches the sail as they turn ::
(6:39:58 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Squeaks in surprise, trying to stay on board but failing:: Eek! ::Grabs onto railing, hanging from the ship::
(6:40:32 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she runs towards Velekh, grabbing the back of his shirt ::
(6:41:52 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: hears Jude running across the deck and looks ::
(6:42:04 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::runs across the deck, helping to grab the cat before he goes into the water::
(6:43:07 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: so immersed in the map that she doesn't look up until the doc runs off :: All: Wha?
(6:43:20 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: brings the boat into rescue mode, turning to loop back around and up next to Velekh ::
(6:43:40 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: had fallen asleep sunning herself on the deck, wakes up from the commotion ::
(6:44:20 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns the boat so that it slows, to make a rescue easier. ::
(6:45:27 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she pulled Velekh back in, and away from the railing :: MED: I do not need a repeat of the last time I pulled a cat out of water.
(6:45:34 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Gets distracted from the rescue and dives down for the fish
(6:45:55 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns her body and watches with ears perked, but she feels a sense of calm. The holodeck has safeties, after all ::
(6:46:24 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: figures out what happened, and is amazed at the capacity this boat's crew has for falling off of it ::
(6:46:29 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she places her hands on hips, and audibly sighs ::
(6:47:27 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: figures the cluster of people at the railing don't seem alarmed and have the matter under control ::
(6:48:03 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: decides to look back out towards the island so that Velekh doesn't find *everyone* staring when he looks up ::
(6:48:03 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Climbs back aboard and shakes himself dry, getting everyone wet as he giggles::
(6:48:37 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::steps back onto the middle of the deck once Velekh is out of danger, but not before she's sprayed by a bunch of water..::
(6:49:05 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: she snickers and turns over again on her back, then leans her head back to face the sun ::
(6:49:19 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is hit with a spray of water and dives to cover the map, laughing :: All: Hey! Old map over here! :: teasingly ::
(6:49:23 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she walks back towards the CSO, before suddenly pausing, feeling the water hit her back :: CSO: Sooo, anything new?
(6:50:20 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns back into the wind and keels the boat over for the last couple moments before the reach the island ::
(6:50:21 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: intakes a sharp breath as she's suddenly wet from cat ::
(6:50:54 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Suffers instant karma as he puffs up::
(6:51:22 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: All: Brace for beaching!
(6:51:26 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smirks as the cat suddenly turns into a puffball::
(6:51:27 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: notes Linxi in surprise :: SCI2: Ah! There you are. Well, Dr. Tailor and I put our heads together and determined that if this is the right island, we're looking at a hike into the inland of the north part of the island. :: looks questioning at Linxi ::
(6:51:49 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CSO: Hm. :: nods to self ::
(6:51:58 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Brace for ...what? :: looks over and sees the island rapidly approaching ::
(6:52:29 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns the boat just in time so that they don't beach too forcefully. ::,
(6:52:33 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Self: Eep! :: grabs on to the table, assuming that it's affixed to the deck as her console is ::
(6:52:46 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: looks over, also seeing the island, grabbing the table ::
(6:52:49 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: enjoys the fear reactions ::
(6:52:55 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::turns to look:: XO: Brace..? ::grabs the railing at the last second::
(6:53:11 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: she sits up, the spray having fully awakened her, as the boat beaches ::
(6:53:32 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has slowed the boat rapidly, so that when they reach the ground, it's with a light bump. ::
(6:53:52 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins happily at the low impact ::
(6:53:58 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: after seconds of stillness pass, opens one eye :: CTO: Was that it?
(6:54:31 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: smiles wryly :: CSO: Aye. That was it. You just have to know hydrodynamics. ::
(6:54:41 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Peers over the railing and, seeing dry land, hops over it, landing gracefully like a tall tribble with legs::
(6:54:55 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: sarcasm :: CTO: Wow, that was so eventful!
(6:55:26 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: briefly glowers at his condescending implication that she, a scientist, doesn't know hydrodynamics ::
(6:55:28 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: takes a deep bow :: SCI2: I live to serve.
(6:55:33 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::unclenches her hand from the rail, and opens one eye:: Self: ...oh. That wasn't so bad.
(6:55:47 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: she finally stands up, having spent the entire trip reclined, and leans on the rail looking at the island ::
(6:55:50 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she laughs ::
(6:56:08 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: All: You never know. Always good to be prepared.
(6:56:37 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: hops up onto the railing, gargoyle style ::
(6:56:48 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Turns in a circle before deciding to remove his leather boots, wiggling his toes in the warm sand::
(6:56:49 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: mutters in annoyance to herself as she gathers the map and the expedition navigation tools and straightens her pith helmet :: Self: Right.
(6:57:39 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: hops off the sailboat onto the sand, taking a line with him to tie up to a tree just beyond the beach ::
(6:57:49 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she jumps off the boat, running into the sand, before bending over and kissing it :: All: Ground sweet ground!
(6:58:18 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: springs over the railing and lands in the gentle surf, curling her toes in the sand ::
(6:58:47 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::calmly climbs down from the boat, and catches up with everyone else, looking around at the scenery:: All: Pretty..
(6:58:55 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Jude curiously and hops down past her to follow Wolfe ::
(6:59:16 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hops down onto the sand, looks up at the sun to get her bearings, then consults the map and compass :: All: Okay, so I'm pretty sure this says we'll be hiking into the jungle, but I'm open to second opinions.
(6:59:57 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she stands back up, and walks back towards Wright, looking at the map, before bluntly remarking... :: CSO: Yup.
(7:00:31 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Freezes and stares into the trees, narrowing his eyes. He darts forward into them, before seconds later re-emerging chasing a huge butterfly with a ridiculous amount of concentration::
(7:01:02 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she stares at the cat, before facepalming ::
(7:01:08 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finishes tyinig up the vessel, and turns around to find that Kuari has followed him closely ::
(7:01:22 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods, unfazed by the terse response :: SCI2: Excellent. :: doesn't notice Velekh, face still buried in map ::
(7:01:49 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: briefly contemplates shoes, but she decides against it ::
(7:02:04 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks at the compass and map, waving off a mosquito or two in the process:: CSO: That way? ::points down a path that looks like it's going in the right direction::
(7:02:17 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches the butterfly with focused interest, but doesn't chase after it ::
(7:03:04 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Lead on then!
(7:03:08 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks where the doc is pointing, then, meets Linxi's eyes for confirmation with a shrug :: SCI2: I don't see why not.
(7:03:20 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Chase gets intense for him as he even uses a tree for extra height, his tail barely keeping him balanced with his mad swipes::
(7:04:41 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she shrugs, and begins power-walking ahead ::
(7:05:33 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: begins to follow, but keeps looking back at Velekh and falls behind. It's just a holo-butterfly after all, but... ::
(7:05:56 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: watches Linxi start marching off ahead and shakes her head, looking at the doc for commiseration :: CMO: :: quietly :: All the motivation and none of the sense.
(7:06:22 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: makes sure everyone is gathered together, and then leads the group down the trail ::
(7:06:44 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: catches up to the group and trails just slightly behind ::
(7:07:04 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Huffs, not realising everyone is moving on, and removes his gloves, moving to a crouch and waiting for the butterfly to land::
(7:07:49 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: follows Lexy, taking in the scenery as they move along, glad that the insect life isn't programmed to bite ::
(7:08:59 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::chuckles at Lexy, and follows the group into the forest::
(7:09:30 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands at the head of the trail, looking ahead at the group and telling herself she'll catch up, then looks back to Velekh, rooting him on ::
(7:11:02 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she is whistling, walking ahead, but she suddenly pauses when she notices a wall of.. rock. she turns around on the spot, shouting backwards :: All: Uh guys, we have a small issue over here.
(7:11:42 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: calls out as they close the gap between them :: SCI2: What's the problem?
(7:12:21 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she points upwards :: CSO: Cliff. :: she looked around at the group :: All: Did anyone happen to being any rope?
(7:12:27 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Ears laid back, he pauses,arching down. His butt shakes slightly before he pounces, catching the butterfly under his paws. He grins as he lifts them up but his ears and face falls when the insect turns to pixels and fades::
(7:13:10 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: gives Velekh a wry smile :: MED: Nice catch. Come on, we've got to catch up!
(7:14:00 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks around, maybe there's some vines or something::
(7:14:01 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks around, having no place to store rope in a two-piece ::
(7:15:02 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Ears perk up at Kuari's voice and he nods:: XO: Yeah. ::Jogs over to her, scooping up his gloves on the way and smiling as he falls into step with her::
(7:15:13 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI2: There might be some back on the boat. I didn't bring any.
(7:15:45 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns and lost sight of the party, but follows their scents ::
(7:17:21 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she looks up, noticing vines hanging from a few trees. luckily, she actually brought a knife with her. she pulls on the vines, reaching as high as she can, starting to climb onto the tree, cutting off a reasonable length of thick vine ::
(7:17:29 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she then cuts along the length of the vine, and ties two halves together, and wraps it around herself. she looks up at the cliff for a few brief moments, putting together a route in her head, before jumping into the cliff, and climbing it ::
(7:17:46 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Walks close to Kuari's side as he takes in his surroundings, not wanting to lose her and wander off::
(7:18:36 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI2: Can you cut enough vines for everyone?
(7:18:57 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: reaches the base of the cliff with Velekh and sees everyone looking up at Jude climbing up a cliff with vines tied to her ::
(7:19:12 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: looks down :: CMO: I will tie the vine at the top, and drop it down.
(7:19:40 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI2: Ok, makes sense.
(7:20:00 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks upat the top of the cliff, hands on her hips ::
(7:20:32 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks up as Jude climbs, spotting her::
(7:21:04 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks past Jude at Kate ::
(7:21:40 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: was about to express how impressed she was with Linxi's climbing, but is now distracted ::
(7:23:50 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she looks up at a small ledge, and jumps, hanging from one arm, pulling herself up. she begins climbing again, the cliff turning outwards. she then pulls herself up with all her upper body strength to avoid falling ::
(7:24:59 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: No one in particular: Well... she's quite good. The only person I've ever seen climb like that is Suzuki. Interesting.
(7:26:13 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Looks upwards, concerned at the height Linxi is at. Considers, briefly, trying to climb as well, but his fear of heights makes him cringe::
(7:26:32 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: So... I guess the expectation is that we're all going to shimmy up that vine after here?
(7:26:46 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: doesn't wait for the makeshift rope, takes to a different path up the cliff, and begins climbing. He's not as fast as he'd like, but he's also not slow ::
(7:27:27 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she pulls herself over the ledge, and looks around, finding a rock to tie the rope too, and looking down at the group :: All: Look out! Vine incoming! :: she drops the opposite end ::
(7:27:43 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Ears flatten at the thought of going straight up and leans into Kuari, an uncomfortable look on his face::
(7:28:16 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: Self: Whoops! ::sidesteps the vine just in time before it lands on her head::
(7:28:35 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: still looking down, notices Velekh's ears :: MED: Yo, it's fine! There are safeties on!
(7:28:55 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: smiles at Jude's climbing skills but frowns when Velekh leans into her and looks at him :: MED: What's wrong?
(7:29:16 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Might as well! :: grabs the vine with a grin and starts climbing, using her feet on the wall as necessary ::
(7:29:52 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she grabs the portion of the vine hanging over the ledge, just in case ::
(7:29:58 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Hey, I was gonna go first! :: gets on the vine behind Kate after she ascends far enough ::
(7:30:46 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Too slow!
(7:30:52 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: XO: The height... I can't... ::Face twists into a grimace as he moves to sit by her side::
(7:30:53 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO/CSO: Heyyy, you two! No fighting on my vine! :: jokingly ::
(7:31:36 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::waits patiently until there is vine space, and then grabs it and starts climbing, hanging on for dear life as she grips her way upwards, scrabbling with her feet for balance::
(7:32:06 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is working his way up when he reaches a point with nothing to grab. He cusses at himself before working his way down a little ways and finding a new way up. How amateurish. ::
(7:33:07 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: Reaches the top and pulls herself up, looking down at the climbers ::
(7:33:26 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits facing Velekh, quietly :: MED: You're afraid of heights? :: sizes Velekh up, but...nope, still too heavy to carry on her back straight up ::
(7:34:11 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::flops herself down onto the edge when she gets to the top, catching her breath::
(7:35:23 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: was helped up by Kate, now helping other climbers as they reach the top ::
(7:35:28 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finally makes it to the top and pulls himself over the ledge. He stands up and looks down to see his path ::
(7:35:30 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Nice job with the vine. :: watching the climbers from the top, hands on hips, then notices Velekh ::
(7:35:36 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: XO: Ridiculous, right? A doctor on a starship afraid of a little height. ::Huffs a weak laugh, tail curling around his side::
(7:35:47 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she turns towards Wolfe and places a hand on her hip, smirking :: CTO: So... how was that 'alternate route'?
(7:36:10 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Thanks, cap.
(7:36:46 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks up at the climbers on the cliff, then back at Velekh. It's just a holodeck program, and it doesn't need to be embarrassing for Velekh :: MED: We'll deal with this fear later, but for now...could you hold onto my back while I climb up? You can close your eyes.
(7:37:06 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: still looking down the cliff ::SCI2: Well, other than one bad direction, I rather enjoyed it. Not often I go climbing like that. I should do it more often.
(7:38:14 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Chews his lip for a moment before smiling gratefully:: XO: That... That would be great... Thank you, Kuari... :He stands::
(7:38:29 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: sees that Kuari would seem to have the situation in hand ::
(7:38:35 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands on all fours and lowers one wing for Velekh ::
(7:38:54 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: I have a rock climbing holodeck program, myself. Maybe you could borrow it.
(7:39:10 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: calls down :: XO: We can pull you up, maybe? Would that help?
(7:40:22 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Climbs on, careful to be gentle as he settles, Holding on lightly, but securely::
(7:41:04 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: Maybe not our combined weight. Thanks, we've got this.
(7:41:43 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: pivots his downward gaze to regard Ensign Jude, as though it's the first time he's considered her as anything more than a nuisance :: SCI2: I might enjoy that. Thanks.
(7:42:03 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sees Velekh holding on very well, so moves to the base of the wall, mounts it carefully, then scales it quickly with her claws ::
(7:42:29 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: grins as Kuari climbs the wall ::
(7:42:53 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Squeezes his eyes shut as they move, focusing on the shift of muscles beneath his hands to distract him::
(7:43:03 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sidles up to Linxi and murmurs :: SCI2: What did I tell you about competence?
(7:43:11 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grins ::
(7:43:23 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she grins :: CTO: Maybe a little speed climbing competition, too?
(7:44:00 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks back down and speaks very matter-of-factly :: SCI2: You can't beat me.
(7:44:15 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: winces and murmurs :: SCI2: Slow down, though...
(7:44:33 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she stands as straight as she can, crossing her arms :: CTO: Try me.
(7:45:30 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: at the top of the cliff, pants heavily with open mouth and lolling tongue. The addition of Velekh's weight and going straight up reminds her that she needs to work out more ::
(7:46:14 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: thinks a moment before responding. :: SCI2: Very well. Pick the most difficult cliff on your program. Next time we're off at the same time, you've got a match.
(7:46:24 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: unscrews the cap and hands Kuari her canteen :: XO: Nice job, Commander.
(7:46:46 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Deal. :: holds hand out, for a shake ::
(7:47:18 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: lowers her head and angles it upward for Wright to pour, still standing on all fours and waiting for Velekh to get off her back ::
(7:47:32 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: considers Jude's hand for a moment, then shakes with her, giving her hand the same tough handshake he'd give someone his own size. ::
(7:47:54 PM) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Slides off to ease the burden on Kuari, before turning and hugging her gently:: XO: Thanks. ::Lets go and gives a sheepish smile:: Sorry about the trouble...
(7:48:04 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::stands up after catching her breath, ready to go again::
(7:48:10 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tips a stream of cool, clear water into Kuari's waiting mouth :: MED: Velekh, you did well also. :: smiles at him ::
(7:48:39 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she can't help but continue grinning, while turning to Kuari and Velekh ::
(7:48:43 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: leans in to say quietly to Kuari :: XO: It was good of you to do that. Thank you.
(7:49:13 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: also turns to Kuari and Velekh ::
(7:49:40 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: swallows and smiles gratefully at Wright, then nods dutifully at Harper. She then looks at Velekh and says quietly :: It worked out. We'll talk about it later, okay?
(7:54:07 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts away her canteen and pulls out the map and compass :: Self: Well, hopefully we don't have to do THAT again. But it looks like this is the right way. Probably.
(7:54:59 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she looks over at Wright, and to the map. she mutters to herself, before pointing slightly to the left of where Wright said :: CSO: I think it is slightly more that way.
(7:55:00 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::Looks around, comparing the direction they'd come with the direction the map was supposed to be pointing, eventually finding an overgrown path with mossy stones:: All: This looks like it..
