Water at last! Hans found a spot where water was close, and he dug at just the right spot. The water comes out as a boiling jet from hot rocks deep in the Earth, but it soon cools down. We're saved! We watch it run down the slope. It's beautiful!

I just thought of something. When Arne Saknussemm came here, he didn't have modern instruments to calculate depth. Maybe he just thought he was at the Earth's core? He didn't have modern ladders. Maybe he didn't get this far? All we see is endless tunnels. Maybe we should call this expedition a success?

Do we really want to keep going, blundering our way aimlessly until maybe somebody gets killed? Maybe we should go back and study what we have learned, then come back, much better prepared? Do you have any better ideas?
