"Yes sir." the scout responds.

"ALLLLLL-RIGHT LADS!" the Sergeant shouts. "Let's double this pace.
Anyone trailing behind carries a s bag full o' stones on the way

The men break into a jog, covering about twice as much ground as they
did before. Within about five minutes they reach the landslide.
Something has caused the shale walls of the gully to collapse, and it
has covered the trail, and even clogged the creek below, where a small
lake is now slowly forming.

One of the scouts pokes his head over the top of the gully, about
fifty feet above. He signals that the enemy company is approaching.

One of the other scouts trailing the enemy radios in. "They're within
a couple of minutes of you, Sir. Some of 'em look heavily armed, and
at least one is a cyborg."
