Day 474: a ducken among us

Day 474:

Can now also confirm that the red sparky rock, when fired off, will startle a ducken… because somehow a ducken has followed me all the way down to the bedrock level. I don’t know what she thinks she’s going to eat down here, but here she is, and she is not a fan of the red rock.

Very tired tonight. I’m closer to where I started than where I once was, but I’m tired of hauling things. Feels like all I’ve done since I arrived was haul things. It’s time for that to change.

I’m pretty confident I can turn the red rock into a small explosion that can push a cart forward on some rails, if I make rails. I’m not talking a combustion engine here, more like being shot out of a cannon, but that beats walking.
