Steph parked her car on the flat straight highway's edge, and we went further up the muddy mountain road to a good stopping point. Only there wasn't one, and the bouncing of the car and fading in and out of signal was not good for me testing with my PDA.
We eventually got stuck/parked in the driveway of a household, and sought shelter there. We traded items and work for hospitality. I'm not sure how we got unstuck.
Then I think I woke up or something.
