I could not build a fire yesterday; the tinder was wet and I couldn't find my pair of sticks anywhere. The fire I made last Xipotle went out during the night - I don't know why, but I did find what looked like some Brontosaurus tracks nearby so that might have been the cause. It hasn't rained for 3 moons, so last night's storm was a major surprise. It is only about a 10 days walk to the last place I remember seeing anyone and perhaps I could get some fire there. The Pterodactyls that I caught last week and put into the cave will probably starve before I get back, so perhaps I shouldn't go. I hope to use them to pull the flying chariot that I am building to cross the great salt pond sometime in the future; it was hard work capturing them, especially after one of them practically bit off my arm.
