Stripetail entered about ten minutes later. his sleep had been more peaceful than Redstripes, in fact his dreams had nearly been carefree, whicvh was rare for him. Stripetail knew to savor such nights.. as he lkooked at the badger he noties signs that his night had been a restless one. " Hard time falling asleep last night?' He said, looking at his friend.

"Aye, can't hide anything from you can I now?" He chuckled making light of the moment,"Just memories, thoughts and reflections. And lookit ere, my armor still fits...a bit snug, but thats just a wee bit of weight I put on." He smiled and took a bite of cheese,"But the walking will get rid-o-that."

yes, you'll lose a few pounds, either through walking or by training with the Long Patrol, they'll sweat the weight off.. " Striopetail grinned, the hares of Salmandastron were legendary for thier rigorous training

Redstripe groaned, he remembered the last time he'd trained with the Long Patrol...he hated it. Good training, but it was constant and draining, and and...well one other thing but he couldn't quite sum up the words."Oh aye, thats true. I forgot about that part, maybe I could just work the forge or eat the food?"

Not if you're going to be the next Badger Lord.." stripetail said firmly. " the Long Patriol wouldn;t hear of having a Badger Lord "take it easY. they'd laugh us out of Salamandastron.. a throw us out, which wouldn't be good for our old bones.."

"Aye thats true, but t'was worth the try." He chuckled and stood,"You should get some food, we need ta leave afore the dibbuns awake. They'd not let me leave." He stretched and walked outside into the sunshine that had already filled the grounds.

Redstripe called back,"I'm not going to say my goodbyes, saying goodbye would tell them I don't plan on comming back. Its best they don't know that." He stopped by the gate and lifted the beam holding the door closed(can't remember what its called) and set it against the wall.

Stripetail nodded. "Tell them you're going on a journey, if they see you.." he turnded anbnd disappeaed into the Great Hall. He returned about fifteen minutes later carrying a large knapsack on his back. "Here this should be enough to get us to Salmandastron. We won't need to worry about food once we get there, you know the hares make enough food to feed themselves, and then some..."

Redstripe nodded as Stripetail returned,"Aye, though with me there the food might run out a wee bit faster. As I've gotten older I've gained a hare's appetite, maybe even worse than a hare." He chuckled and pushed the gate open for them.
A large hedgehog approached,"Oye, Stripe. You goin away?" He looked at them.
"Aye thats right Hod, I'm headed for Salamandstron, and I don't know when I'm comming back. So ifin ya could, close up the gate behind us. And I'll see you when I return."
Hod nodded,"Aye, you be safe than an comon back as soon asin ye see fit." He waited till they got out the gate and then barred it back up, he had to struggle with it but he made due.

You too Hod" Stripeyail nodded as he and rEdstripe made thier way down the path towards the edge of the woods of Mossflower. they wpould head into mossflower, then head northwest for awhile then due west until they reached the sea..

They had finally reached the plains just outside of mossflower wood. Their slow pace due to age, well Redstripe blamed it on the terrain he had to move through but really it was his body telling him, 'Your old and fat, sit down and eat somthing!' He sighed and shook his head, armor wasn't the best idea.
"So Stripetail, how longs it been since we've quested together?" He shook his head and sighed.

Twenty seasons at least" Stripetail replied. " I'm in better shape than you are, my friend, thats largely due to my constant travels. We should rest then pick up the pace. I had jhoped to be halfway there by now, at this rate we won't reach salamandastron until winter. We'd be cutting it close.. at that pace.."
