Well, that bump I pointed as Goat, it is not! That may prove to be a problem since we, as a group are splitting already.

The first stop is to be at the section marker. Some of us stopped there.

John and I are the only ones looking for it. So our group is disintegrating. Some could say it is a dysfunctional group.

Maurice and I are trying to get some of the group together to no avail. We are mostly separated!
