Another blast of Cameron Webb.
Even though this ISN'T the rest of the first third of the book (one more blast, honest!), it's some pretty significant progress. It's all transitional stuff before the next block, which should be fun to write.
I really don't enjoy writing get-you-from-point-A-to-point-B chapters, but they're occasionally necessary. In fact, the thought of writing this part is what was preventing me from finishing up this section of the book. I tried to keep it fun, but, you know, sometimes you have to do the equivalent of taking the bus to Oklahoma, if that's where your flight to Hawaii is leaving from.
