We left the Neophyte homestead at 4 am yesterday, in torrential rain. At times we couldn't see the road. But we were determined to push a head of it. Small asked why it seems to always be raining when we do things. I told him its because we refuse to do things the easy way. He nodded, and went back to sleep.
The rest of the trip was uneventful. I did get a phone call from the family staying at the homestead, Muriel calved that morning we left.
