Chapter Thirty-Four Heading to Bandar Abbas

It takes three whole nights of travel to arrive near Jask. Again, they choose a remote area, dig in and bury their gear. They stow what they won't need for the next leg and refill the hole, disguising it well. "I suggest we move out a couple of hours, to distance ourselves from the site, just in case," proposes Schwartz.

"I agree. Let's head north until, say,0430, then find ourselves a spot to sit out the daylight hours." The night is windy, which is annoying but also in their favor. As they travel, the wind saves them one chore, obliterating their tracks in the swirling sands.
