We hiked deep into the Los Padres National Forest and arrived at Bagman’s main camp before nightfall. The weather has begun to turn and a late summer rainstorm is moving through the area. Not only does the rain provide welcomed break from the heat, it also brings about a temporary suspension of the aerial patrols as well. I mentioned the connection between the two and Bagman knew exactly what I was talking about.
The Threak are afraid of the rain. It’s not that they just don’t like it, or find it inconvenient, – they fear it, – they actually fear it.
