The bastards were late. In the valley below us the black helicopter thudded through the early morning mist towards the camp that we had abandoned hours earlier. I clenched the steering wheel, whilst in the back seat behind me the old man raved.

"The Man cannot abide to hear the true word of the Lord as preached by the faithful! Well hear me, the righteous will never be silenced," he screamed shaking a palsied fist at his persecutors.

I shrugged and started the engine.

"That's right Dad," I said, putting the minivan into gear and setting off towards the interstate.

Really? It is my idea of hell, worse than 5 hours on the A303 with the kids.

Yikes. Perhaps I'll go lighter on the fanaticism and maybe only be slightly tetchy. :)
