It's frustrating to sit here and just eat our valuable supplies for nothing. But finally, on the last possible day, the sun came out! The shadow of the mountain Scartaris clearly shows which entrance to take! This is it!

I am looking at a hole that might be thousands of miles deep. There's a good chance that if I enter I will never return.

Should I stay up here, to fetch help if the others don't make it? Or begin the journey to the center of the Earth? Or, do something else?
