I got some more plastic so I can put it in the top of the hole so that the fresh water can evaporate and fall into the cup. I had plenty of fresh water for me and Stew Cat for a couple of days. After more then a year in The Cay we finally heard a boat from far away I was so excited, but the ordeal was not over yet they had to see us first to save us. I rushed to the big pile of wood and got the fire to light the wood I was
