into the boneyard, and then --

I had an inciting incident.  So I wrote up the outline that far.  And have all three characters with their packs ready to march off somewhere. . .

A boneyard, but that's just passing through.  And it was hard enough to get to.

Perhaps I will recast how the main character learns the knowledge that means he has to go into hiding, which might even mean they acquire two more expedition members. I had had vague ideas of dawn, and a labyrinth, which got left out.


And if that doesn't jog something loose, I will have to shake it some more.
