    Charley was up about 4:30 am  got the camp fire going, put the coffee on and started heating a big pot of stew that he had made early, figured every one should have some thing in them to start the trip , He got in to the utility trailer and got out that jerky they brought up Plenty for a couple of days. Jim your up? you to Ted  bobby and Lino are most likely still sleeping, Don't think so I heard Lino leave about 4:00 Get bobby up, Hope he comes back, me too because he knows the way to get their.

We are going right here, see where you have those lines meeting each other, The way you have drawn the lines it looks like you have found the main tunnel  their where you put the blue x .see Yes, if you follow your blue line and up a little from the 3000 mark, That is where I seen the boys down in a valley below.
     Why did wait to tell us where the kids were? Ask Ted,

Their were some men here a 2 mounts ago and I told them that I have seen big animals, and they said I was Lying,
and grab me and tied me up and took  me to their camp, I heard one man say we have to get rid of him, I got free from the ropes and got away ,They shot at me and tried to follow me, but they were too slow I hid and watch for several days, They were looking for some thing, They had a big truck with a dish thing on top that turned. Did the truck have any markings on it? Yes the letter U.S. Jim Spoke up I new it. the government has to be behind this. Charley then said The letter that was in that Rangers jacket that we found said they were doing experiments with nuclear waste and some kind of gamma partials Bobby Said and kind of enzyme, and DNA research It looks like it up to us to stop this, Well Lets first rescue every one before we  try to save the world spoke Ted  Your right let get those kids .

This is a pretty good elk trail. You no I have not seen 1 elk or a deer, said Ted Bobby said we seen some mule deer earlier, but that's it . Yes lino spoke  up, the squirrels and birds have been missing too, We found lots of dead fish in the river. but I caught some live ones. some thing strange here that. for sure Jim said, ' We got to stop and take a rest soon said lino its just up a little ways and we will be on that ridge,. here we are. Bobby where are you going I want to go over to those pine trees and look around , I will go with you said lino. Come on lets go . Their is that smell but not very strong, and look some tracks,  they go over here. look a dead elk, yes and a hole in it's head  like the wolf that Jim found. Look over down their! we are going down to that Big rock them along that ravine and back to that ridge, from their we can be in place to see your friends, Lets go back and tell Jim about this elk.!! Jim Jim !! We found a dead elk with it's brains sucked out How about it's feet Lino spoke up Yes It looked like it had been caught in a trap and the elk had pulled his foot out and ripped the sin all the way to the bone off same as the wolf said Jim, Let go! Ted said, I want to see my boy nicos  as he grab his back pack, Slow down you boys Its Steep going down , We are old men,  Lino laugh so is my dad, and bobby said their so old they new chief Sitting bull ,Struck lino funny bone and replied Like to see them ride a buffalo like old sitting bull did,  Jim got thrown off a horse last year and had to use a cane for about a week acted like an old woman Lino and bobby just laughed and laughed What so funny  up their said Charley? and that just laughed some more. I'm glad you came to help us, Me to you are a great friend bobby, and helina is very nice too, You like her don't you? No Just as friend, and they started laughing again.
  Here is the big rock, we will snake our way along this edge of this gully  them we will have to climb to that ridge  pretty steep but we can do it,. Jim ok said charley after about an hour  they came to a spot where rocks had slid down .Lino said another 500 yards and we will climb up. when they got to the spot Jim said lets eat first Every one agreed, that got out that jerky and cheese, It's good Then Ted Had a surprise and got out of his pack a hole bag of Hershey kisses, Lino had never eaten them But had no problem eating 10 or more and bobby he keep right up with him, then they started up the hill and about half way  Ted said we need that rope , Lino took the end of the rope and climbed up and tied it to a tree limb  about 100' ft up  .They used as a guide for they were slipping on the shell rock,  They climbed over some more rocks, lino showed them a trail and took it and came around to the top, Now be quite and  lets go through this thicket of trees, they came through the trees and in front of them were a bunch of huge rocks, so they went slowly towards them and their was a space between the two biggest rocks,  then just on the other side of them it was flat like a table and about 15 yards wide so they crawled to the edge and they look down to the bottom of the ravine and they could see a big hole in the side of the mountain like a tunnel Their he said they will bring them out here Jim Said Who will Bring them out Lino said you will see. as charley looked down he ask lino   where do they bring them too Lino said right by that big rock about 200 ft from the entrance. they let them walk around and get warm I think they are shivering . It must be cold under ground their Jim said, Charley thought for a moment  and said If we could get a note  down there do you think nicos could find it Yes lino said yes I will take it their  Charley said I will take it, No said Lino I can get in and out,  they will never here me I watch your camp, and took a jacket off the tree and you did not here me, That was you, why did you take the jacket. I wanted your dog to find me , I knew he would follow nicos smell on it. I wanted to make friends with him It's was lonely since my father left. Ok here take this note   Be care full Give me that rope.

He's coming back he is climbing the rope.
Where is he ? ask Ted bobby said it's harder to climb then go down hill, I see him  their he is he is moving like lighting  said Jim , Your Back Good job son , Now all we can do is wait , how long said Ted  when the sunlight reaches that set of rocks to the west , They will come..
