We got stuck in the Green Zone yesterday. We'd headed out to get some more samples. The jeep broke down about ten miles from the station.
Equipment breaks down in The Sick Land. It's okay in the Green Zone, normally, as long as the technology isn't too sophisticated. Laptops don't work where we broke down. Jeeps can sometimes go around the outer Yellow, but not much farther.
We spent a couple of hours trying to diagnose the problem, but couldn't find anything. We thought it was probably just the Green. We pushed the jeep three miles toward the station. Then it started.
It was too late to get back in the station. The building is automatically locked when it's dark outside. We tried to sleep in the jeep. Nothing went wrong. I snatched a few moments, but had terrible dreams.
