Setting up camp in a clearing doesn't take long and Lee and Ellie cook two-minute noodles for supper. Somehow Fi's never had instant noodles before—Ellie and Lee are blown away by this news (and Shmoop is, too).
The friends sit up late talking around the fire, excited to be somewhere so few humans have ever been before. Then they all pass out.
