Scratch the back of our head in search of an idea with the other hand.
Hold on tight to what we've got.
Reach towards the ceiling, holding on.

Now that you think about it, not at all. You're not tired either. You don't need to eat or drink now? Which is convenient, what with the unremovable full face helmet.

They don''t seem to be leading you out. You've been following them for [3:23:17:845] now and you've only gone down deeper. Maybe you started off in the wrong direction?

You venture further and find...


a forest? A sign on the wall calls it "AIR RECLAMATION/RECREATION AREA 12-B".

Trees(?) stretch from floor to ceiling. Tufts of grass(?) crumple under your boots. A massive artificial sun bathes the room in harsh light. You wonder at the faint breeze before noticing the drone of ventilation fans. The sense of unease that's been dogging you since you went underground eases off a bit and you relax. You may be lost, but you're not being pursued anymore.

What next?

Make a mental record of the precise route (and possible GPS coords) we took to get here and hope it doesn't get wiped next time Gates or whoever does a format /q/y on our brain, then explore.

Hope is for fools.

Physical note. Written, if we can be sure our other selves can find it and Gates won't just have them torch it. Etched into some mechanical part of us we can conceal, if we have to. Thenn go explore.

If I can't keep anything in my head I'll try somewhere else.

With that thought, you pull out your knife and look for an inconspicuous spot to scratch a note. Your first thought is somewhere under your gloves, but you can't get them off? You can't really roll up your sleeves either. You try harder, tearing at your clothes! Suddenly you seize!

The cavern takes up a few thousand square feet. There are several other passages but they lead back into the original tunnel you came from. It must be some kind of maintenance network?

We can stop if it gets too hot (thermal or ionizing). It's okay.
