    The day was a crisp cold one, but no storms yet, Invader made her way along a forgotten path. They had waited all year to come to this place. Many a story had been passed down, about the secret cabin, that ACME had. A trip like this was needed, after the past turbulent year they had experienced. Though there had been very vivid, pink skies when they had set out this morning. They were hoping to catch up with a few friends upon arriving. They had packed extras just in case a storm swept in.

    Jade dressed up warmly in a very cold weather although she hates the cold weather she has to find anywhere with a fireplace at least she pack her things for her and her cat,Sam who joins with her also dressed up warmly along with a pair of paw warmers for his paws' sake and like his owner he hates the cold weather as well...

    "I don't know about you,Sam but we better hurry before the blizzard hits I just don't end up with the flu or worse and neither would you." she said while walking with a pair of snowshoes on her insulted boots that her father gave her for Christmas...Jade finds a fork on the path trying to find which path she and Sam can go that is safe and which path she and Sam cannot used because she and Sam could get lost or getting hurt...

    But then again there's another path that is straight ahead somewhere "Sam,skip the fork let's go straight ahead and hoping for that path leads to a warm place."

    Without a doubt she and Sam took the straight path.

    When he wasn't directing operations, Director of Operations Chase Devineaux kept track of agents-in-training. While Commander Ivy Monaghan ran a tight training regime for special agents and 'Chief Pilot' Eugene Grovington molded the best ACME Aviators, Chase was free to scout.

    But for now, he was shoveling snow.

    In front of a large log cabin, Devineaux cleared the path. Last night's 6-inches of snow was still powder white.

    (Arriving agents, feel free to greet Chase, or continue down your path. Please also describe the cabin once you find it.)

    "Yikes!" said Jade as she and Sam stopped as the straight path comes to an end..."Sam,look down there a cabin I hope there more cabins like that one...come on let's get down there!"

    Jade grab a small coin which transforms into a large saucer sled...a little gift from a winter clearance sale at a gadget store as she and Sam sits together after Jade waxes with a special lubricant and polishes with a cloth. "Hold tight,Sam this going to be one crazy ride."

    And yes it did happen as Jade yelled "WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!!!" while Sam meow loudly.

    Then all of the sudden she and Sam spotted Chase Devineaux

    "LOOK OUT!!!!!!!" Jade yelled as she sled down pass Chase and the saucer sleds stops a medium cabin..."I hope this cabin is ours otherwise we might end up in a very small cabin if it belongs to one of our friends at ACME,Sam." as she grab the cabin key however she noticed the front of the door the sign said : RESERVE

    "Oh fudge!" said Jade "we better find the one who owns these cabins...*Jade and Sam walked* Hello Chase did I snowed you in a bad time?"

    Invader came to a fork in the trail, notably someone had already been here. Slightly apprehensive, they decided to take the other half of the fork and proceeded to the left. The trail here, was much harder to follow, and very iced over in some places. However there was a bridge, so they did not have to take a chance on the iced over creek. Looking around they were thankful, they had brought a camera, she stopped to take a few pictures. Listening they heard the sound of yelling, and a sorts of rocket propelled sled. That was someone they knew, that was good, it made them more at ease.


    Eventually they found the cabin, it was a grad one, medium in size but almost had the appearance of a frontier one. How suiting given the area it was stationed in. It rested on a stone foundation, made of cobble stone rather than field stone. They surmised the rest of it had been made with oak, some very old oak wood that is. Making the place very sturdy, a stone chimney rose along the side of it. There were thin whips of smoke, that meant a fire had been started but would burn low soon. There was a single small stained glass window, that had an maple leaf pattern in it. Along the south wall, was a balcony that was recently added, as the wood did not match in tone with the rest.


    Further looking they caught sight of Chase, a slight grin made its way to her face. Who would pass the opportunity to lob a snowball at him. Gathering up some snow, it was just damp enough for a snowball. Carefully they got within ten feet of him, then launched it to hit him squarely in the back.


    "Hello Chase." She smirked. "Good to see you."

    Jade and Sam were surprised to see Invader... "Hi Invader good to see you again listen that cabin which has the sign said Reserve is this cabin yours?" Jade asked
    "Because if this cabin is yours Sam and I better find a cabin of our own."

    The ground trembled far below her as her mount lumbered forward, snapping branches aside and shattering ice underfoot as it went.

    "Oi," Neb shouted sown to her pet dinosaur, "Cabin should be around here somewhere, aye Rexy? Boss is going to be so excited to see you all grown up."

    The small VILE agent waved a piece of meat on a string in front of her travel mate and he continued on down the path in his quest for it. Rexy was smart enough to know he couldn't reach it, but seeing the meat fueled his resolve against this uncomfortable cold, all the while knowing his handler would let him have it once they arrived at their destination.

    Off in the distance they heard an enthusiastic "WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!!!", and Rexy let out a thunderous roar is return.

    "That's my boy!" cried Neb.

    Chase opened his mouth to say something at Jade's entrance but a snowball then hit his back.

    He returned her smirk, "Good to see you too, both of you." Devineaux nodded to Invader and Jade. There's a fire and hot chocolate inside, if you want to warm up.

    Snow that clung on Chase's coat started to crumble with a rhythmic thunder. Looking up, he put the shovel down and threw his hands out to the sides.

    "Seriously?"

    Jade is surprised to see Kid...and her pet

    "Kid, that's your pet?" Jade said as she started to get scare especially when Sam gets scared and goes behind her "Nice dinosaur don't you eat anybody especially us."

    "Thanks,Chase!" said Jade " Come on,Sam...Let's go inside!" And she and Sam head for Chase's cabin for hot chocolate and a warm fireplace for Sam...Jade wonders where did Kid got that dinosaur from.

    "Thanks for the generous offer, but I prefer ice cold water year round." Invader mused.


    They were hoping to unwind for a bit, but had a hunch the universe was about to prove them wrong yet again. Turning around they caught sight of Kidman, and were quite awed. It had been quite some time, sense they had spent any time with them. This made their day, and they hoped to catch up with them. They also waved to Jade, who appeared to be a little frazzled at the moment.

    "That is awesome, can I pet them" She exclaimed quite excited.

    Just looking at the creature reminded her of home, and of a certain planet that had many dinosaurs roaming it. Well this was a most unexpected turn, who knows what was going to happen to them now. Although, they were hoping to get some sledding in,or at least a lovely moonlight walk around the area.

    The ground *shakes a little* as Julie arrives, testing the non-skid rubber out-sole of her camel-color, high lace-up, waterproof winter boots, with a molded removable insoles that are insulated and trimmed with fur.

    She remains standing, and *straightens up a little* wearing a pearl white, long, quilted down winter coat, with an attached hood with 2 zippered pockets. She *looks up* through the fur trim on the hood of her coat, and sees something that is unbelievable...

    Kidman.. or Neb...or whatever her name is... and her pet...that appears to be a living, breathing, roaring dinosaur...a T-Rex.

    Wearing camel-colored insulated gloves, with longer cuffs for added with molded fingers that are also touch-screen capable, with silicone grips that make it easier to hold on to technology, she adjusts the shoulder pad of the sturdy canvas duffle bag, that is slung over her right shoulder. Finally she says, "Now, there's something I never thought I'd see. I'm glad I didn't miss all the excitement." ;)

    It wasn't snowing, and there was no wind blowing at the moment, either... but the temperature was still cold...so Julie was glad when she saw Jade come out of the cabin with a cup of hot chocolate.

    Julie thanked Jade for her thoughtfulness, and happily *drank* the hot, sweet beverage, and handed the cup back to Jade.

    Arriving in a vintage Fordson 'snow machine', Carmen drove into the cabin's vicinity and waited for Neb to bring in proper distraction. When attentions were turned, she entered the hunting lodge through its back door.

    Hardwood floors and solid oak beams enclosed a cozy but sterile place, characteristic of ACME's Director.

    While Jade was outside receiving Julie, Carmen hung up her coat and hat. She threw her snow boots into the corner, claimed a pair of tufted gray slippers that were near the door, and began studying the ACME lodge.

    The fire was warm, some sap remained on the floor where a yule tree must have stood, and the kitchen was fully stocked. Not a bad place to spend winter...

    Her boots crunching through the snow, Julie walks a short distance until she came to her cabin. It was small, but more than the generous in size for one person. Like the other cabins nearby, it was a frontier-style cabin on a stone foundation, made of oak with a stone chimney on the side. But this cabin had a front porch by the door; something that she couldn't imagine got much use in weather like this.

    She *stomped* her feet on the mat outside the door, to knock a little of the snow of her boots. Looking around cautiously, she reached into the outside pocket of her duffel bag, and took out the key to the cabin. Luckily, the grip on her gloves really was excellent; and the door opened easily. Still a little cautious, she stepped through the door, closing and locking it behind her.

    She takes her duffel bag off her shoulder, and puts it on the floor, next to a little bench, beside the door. She takes off her long winter coat, she hangs it on a peg hook by the door; revealing a red mock turtleneck and blue jeans. Sitting down on a the little bench, she unlaces and removes high winter boots, very glad that are both waterproof, and insulated, as it means that her feet are both dry and relatively warm. She picks up her duffle bag, opens it, an takes out a pair of tennis shoes and puts them on.

    She heads over to the fireplace, and sees that there is a small bundle of wood near it. Taking the protective screen off the fireplace, she puts the wood in the fireplace. She looks around, and finds a book of matches on the mantle. It takes a few *strikes* on the matchbook cover, but she does get the match lit. Satisfied that the fire is burning well enough to warm the cabin, Julie takes off her gloves, putting them on the fireplace mantel.

    As is very popular with many modern floor plans, the kitchen can be partially seen from the living room area; and as Julie goes to the kitchen, to find something to eat, she glances out her window, and sees that a vehicle has pulled up to one of the cabins. It maybe unexpected.. but it is not entirely unfamiliar... Could it really be Carmen? !!..

    Once more, Julie puts on, and laces up her boots, and puts on her coat and her gloves, and goes outside. :)

    Invader kinda was very happy, this was shaping up to be a worthwhile trip. They decided to head inside via the back door, they preferred to quietly slip in. However once there, someone had beat them to the punch. No matter once inside they shed a few layers, and proceeded to walk barefoot in to the lounge. Much to their surprise Carmen was here, it had been a good long time sense they had been in close proximity.

    Normally they kept to themselves, and did the same personal space wise. However they made an exception this time, she walked right up, and sat down next to Carmen. They had hoped to catch a glimpse of them, at least , this was more than enough.

    "I have missed you." They spike with a hint of joy. "How have you been?"

    Picking up his shovel, Devineaux tapped it against his boots to dust off the snow.

    "Right," he spoke under his breath and walked towards the cabin, "Park that where it won't eat anybody."

    Once he opened the door to the cabin, he found his slippers missing, and a set of red coat and hat clearly on the oak stand.

    Chase thought for a moment, and then shrugged. Sure, why not?

    "Hot chocolate, please," he said to no one in particular, "then I'm going to get more firewood."

    As Jade finished her hot chocolate when all of the sudden Chase came back in...
    "Coming right now." said Jade as she quickly pour a cup of hot chocolate and give the cup to Chase "Boy that hot chocolate is delicious! And my cat,Sam loves the fireplace to keep his fur warm."
