OOC: Carlos's player hasn't responded yet, so I'll give him a helping hand

Carlos reports from above that there are two possible hiding places; a stand
of odd-looking purple trees farther to the west with thick enough foliage to
block anyone from seeing them.  Another option is three miles south, but
closer to the road where the troops will be coming through, that might be
better as cover.

"If those ruins are closer," Amanda says, "I'm for heading there.  Ruins
offer better cover than trees.  What about the rest of you?"
