A YEAR UNDERFOOT – entry #86

A Year Underfoot


November 12th, 2033

A couple of hours sleep, and a couple of vitamin packs later and I’m back at it once again. Normally, I wouldn’t chance moving during the day, but time is of the essence. I’ve decided to approach the air base from the east and to do so I have to cross both Interstate 5, and State Highway 99, – a two-lane highway running roughly parallel to the interstate north of the air base.

Once across Interstate 5, I’ll make a wide loop around the northern end of the base and drop along side from there. It’ll add another day and a half to my trip, but it’s the only way I’ll be able to sneak up on the installation.

I’ll continue east until the sun comes up. I should be able to make good time as the terrain is leveling out and the scrub is becoming a bit sparse.

Which brings up the next obstacle I’ll be facing, – the lack of obstacles, i.e., no air cover. But, I’m not going to fret about that now, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
