According to Wikipedia:  The Sonoran Desert (SpanishDesierto de Sonora) is a North American desert which covers large parts of the Southwestern United States in Arizona and California and of Northwestern Mexico in SonoraBaja California, and Baja California Sur. It is the hottest desert in Mexico. It has an area of 260,000 square kilometers (100,000 sq mi). The western portion of the United States–Mexico border passes through the Sonoran Desert.

Let’s see what kind of trouble they can find!!

…a burden he has apparently carried with him for years…

But did you ever see the gold?  And how did the stranger see anything?  Isn’t it dark in a cave??  Oh, that’s right, bioluminescence

And what would you need of a map?  And isn’t it said that the cave opening moves around on its own?  Sort of like on Lost, when it became necessary for Benjamin Linus to move the island?

Yup, just a head fake, apparently…

So I guess we are full on with Doc’s story now, leaving Rusty to his own devices…  I suspect the package was just a bad joke from Professor Carter…  No doubt we will circle back to doll-sized mischief at some point…  Not to mention leaving Dirty Dyer behind…  James Allen, you really expect a lot from your audience…  keeping so many plots going at once!  But certainly they will intersect at some point…

Such looks of foreboding about something that happened 40 or 50 years ago!  Cherry looks as though she expects a alien to pop out of her father’s furrowed brow or something…

And now Mark enters?

Leaving Rusty to deal with the deadly little doll all by his self??  Hopefully they have cigars and whiskey about to keep the little guy sated…

And with the point of an unnaturally large finger, Doc declares the mystery that will perhaps carry us through the next story arc.  And Oh Goody?  An opportunity to go caving gain?
