Comments: I skipped a couple of reports again. Since my last post here I realized I was getting off-track, threw out ten pages, and worked my way forward again. I was on page 80, then back on page 70, reworked some of the cut material and added a little new stuff to get to page 75, and then tonight I wrote five new pages.

Tom and his companions have encountered something mysterious, and been spotted by an as-yet-unidentified person.
